Former Chadron High state champion and current CSC golfer Alpine Hickstein was eliminated from the Nebraska Women’s Match Play Championships on Tuesday morning, dropping her quarterfinal match 2 and 1 to Katie Ruge of Omaha.

Hickstein jumped out and went 1 up through the first four holes, but Ruge stormed back to tie it up heading to the back nine.

Ruge won four of the last eight holes to seal the victory. Ruge went on to upset Hannah Thiele of Wahoo in the semifinals and will meet Hannah Hunke of Snyder in today’s 18-hole championship.
