Bill Davis/News Johnstown’s Gabby Thomas watches her tee shot at the 16th hole of the girls Division II District Golf Tournament, held at Darby Creek Golf Course on Monday.

MARYSVILLE — As she reached the final few holes in the tournament, Gabby Thomas was nervous.

The Johnstown junior didn’t know if she had much of a chance to post a qualifying score at the Division II Girls District Golf Tournament. By the final few holes, she knew all she had to do was hang on.

“I think I finished bogey, bogey, double-bogey on the last three holes,” Thomas said later. “I was so nervous.”

She didn’t have to worry.

Thomas was co-medalist Monday at the tournament, scoring a 7-over 79 and earning the lone individual spot from the Central District in next week’s state tournament.
