The NFV girl’s golf team finished second Tuesday (May 7) and seventh at the Regional Tournament Monday (May 13) in Jesup.

The regional was full of good teams as the Tiger Hawks slipped to seventh.

“I was a little disappointed, but the girls actually scored higher than I thought they would,” commented head coach Robin Madole. “It was probably the toughest Regional in Class 2A and only two could advance. The greens were lighting fast, which gave some of the girls fits.”

NFV boy’s golf knew it had a stern challenge at the Sectional Golf Tournament Friday in New Hampton. There were four ranked teams, and only two could advance, three if the host Chickasaws, ranked sixth, would win.

  At the end of the 18-hole tourney, New Hampton did win with a 326. 

However, the 12th-ranked TigerHawks earned second place by four strokes, 351-355, over unranked Lake Mills. That meant 11th-ranked Sumner-Fred, and 23rd-ranked Forest City will be staying home this Friday as NFV competes in District action for the right to go to the State Golf Tournament Thursday and Friday, May 23-24.
