Tigers returning to State Golf Meet

An astounding 21 strokes ahead of second-place New London (392), the Tiger girls’ golf team earned another trip to the State Golf Meet after claiming Monday’s Region 4 title.

“Despite intense bugs and wind, the depth of our team came through again,” said Valley coach Robin Madole. “Many teams only have four girls to choose from and we are deeper than that with six solid golfers.”

The top-ranked team in Class 1A also advanced two members as individuals as Lexi Moser finished runner-up with 41-42-83 strokes. Class 1A no. 1-ranked Jodi Schott finished two strokes back in third in the individual standings with 45-40-85.

Bailey Moser came in with a 13th-place finish, firing 52-49-101.

Also competing for Valley were Jacqueline Fettkether (51-51-102), Alison Mitts (54-51-105), and Chandler Luzum (57-54-111).

Hawks finally get golf meet in

 

Hawks finally get golf meet in

By Jerry Wadian

After almost two straight weeks of cancellations, North Fayette golfers finally got their first meet of the season into the books.

The Hawks played a triangular Tuesday, April 16, against host Sumner-Fredericksburg and Clayton Ridge.

The girls shot a 219, placing them the middle of the three teams. S-F won with 205, and Clayton Ridge shot a 255.

NF head coach Neal Bentley said, “We looked really good for this meet, considering we have not putted at all, played a single hole, or used anything higher than an 8-iron. I’d say the gals did great!”

Kaylee Lau led the Hawks with a 47 that included par on hole no. three and five. 

Stephanie Nuss came in with a 53, while Dani Jo Abernathy (58) and Molly Vierow (61) completed the varsity scoring. Also golfing for the Hawks were Marissa Bouska (66) and Emily Spies (79).
