SW linksters finally on course

 

 

Snow, rain, and cold temperatures may have put the Warrior golf teams behind in hitting the fairways, but the talent on the team got the job done in the season opener over Waukon on Thursday.

“It was nice to see some first-time varsity players hit the ball so well,” said SW coach Doug Schweinefus. “It definitely is a good start to our season.”

NFV girls win five golds in 2 meets

 

Madison Creery roars down the backstretch in the 400-meter dash Friday, April 11, in Dyersville. She finished seventh in the field of 20 girls. Tuesday in Mason City, Creery won bronze in the 100 dash.  In the Union’s recent track preview, Creery’s name was inadvertently left off the list of returning state qualifiers. In fact, the senior stalwart has been to the State Meet three times, running in the 4x100 and 4x200 in 2011, the 4x100 in 2012, and the 200-meter dash in 2013.
