The North Fayette boys’ golf team finished fourth at the UIC Meet Monday, May 11, in Guttenberg.

It was a brutal day for golf with the temperatures in the low 50s to start the day and ending in the high 40s with strong winds buffeting the course high on the bluffs over the city.

Four of the six TigerHawk golfers qualified for All-UIC honors after finishing in the top 15.

The North Fayette Valley girls won the UIC Golf Tournament Monday, May 11, in Luana.

The girls won by four strokes and crowned five of the six golfers with All-Conference honors.

NFV girls 3rd in UIC by a point

On the backstretch during her final lap, a wall of water with hail hit the area, and the race was halted with the TigerHawks winning. Moyle didn’t hear the cancellation and ran through the gale-like winds, rain and hail to within 100 meters of the finish line before someone could tell her to stop running and seek cover.

Just one point separated NFV and South for second place in the UIC Thursday in West Union.

Clayton Ridge, behind the incomparable Jasmine Staebler, won with 137 points.

Meanwhile the TigerHawks were in a close battle with the Warriors.

The meet was delayed twice because of a series of storms bringing high wind and heavy rain. The first delay came as rain and hail poured onto the track during the girls’ 4x800. The race was called with NFV ahead as blinding sheets of rain that completely obscured portions of the track.

NFV was declared the winner with SW second, but   no time could be recorded. TigerHawk anchor Natalie Moyle actually tried to finish the race in the rain and sleet that left one girl bleeding from the forehead from the hail; another person had bruises on the back of their legs. Meanwhile someone was able to stop Moyle about 100 meters from the finish line.

 In other events, NFV went one-two in the discus with Emily Creery and Callie Mueller winning gold and silver, respectively. The 4x800 was the other gold-medal winner for the TigerHawks.

Kim Rounds was runner-up in the 100 hurdles and Natalie Fettkether was third in the 400 hurdles.

With a strong wind blowing into the faces of runners coming down the homestretch, not many record times were achieved. However, Allison Schori set a personal-best in the 200 and the 4x100 also set a season-best.

Head coach Mark Nuss called the meet, “A great team effort! Doubling up in events kept us in the running.

“This girls’ team has worked very hard this season, and the coaching staff is pleased with their effort and continued improvement. We just need a little more improvement next week in Osage at the State Qualifying Meet.”

Boys win UIU track

In the background, officials Jim Bossom (left) and Pat Lincoln look at the sky with some concern as a storm front moves in. The second photo was taken two laps later as Halva runs through the heavy rain on his way to the victory. However, officials cleared the field and stands during the race, then halted the meet for the second time that night due to weather. The meet was eventually completed with the TigerHawk boys winning.

Boys win UIC track

 

 

North Fayette Valley won a pair of boys’ track meets last week, with the big win coming at home as the TigerHawks beat SW by 47 points for the UIC title. Monday, NFV topped a field of nine teams in Monona.

Once again the UIC was delayed by the weather. Last year in Monona, heavy rain and lightning delayed the meet for almost 40 minutes.

Thursday in West Union, the race was delayed twice. The first time a wall of water, with hail, hit with a fury during the girls’ 4x800 and then more heavy rain, forcing one delay; another brief storm with heavy rain during the boys’ 3200 caused a second delay.

As fans were waiting for events to resume with the shuttle hurdle, lightning forced people into the gym for a while longer.

Eventually the front passed by and the meet was able to finish. However, times may have been a little slower than normal due to a strong wind from the south that blew right into the faces of runners coming down the home stretch to the finish line.

The South Winneshiek boys’ and girls’ track teams traveled to Cresco Thursday afternoon for the Crestwood Invite. When the dust had settled, both Warrior teams ended up finishing second in a field of strong teams.

The boys placed 12 relay teams or individuals in the top-three on their way to another solid performance.

Junior Carson Lensing set two new school records in field events. His impressive performance included a 52’ throw in the shot put and a 160’06” mark in the discus. Senior Jordan Rommes notched third place (135’07”) in the discus to go along with his first-place finish in the high jump (6’02”).

Ben Meyer grabbed third in the long jump, clearing 19’07.5”. He also had the quickest time in the 400 hurdles with 58.40.

The 4x200 relay team of Nathan Ward, Treyton Jacobsen, Mitchell Herold, and Meyer edged New Hampton by less than 0.3 of a second to take top honors.

The girls decided to one-up the boys at Crestwood by placing 14 relay teams or individuals in the top-three, a mark that would also earn them second place.

The Warriors shot a season-low 198 for the afternoon, which was only six strokes short of Decorah’s mark. The Warriors did, however, post a 14-stroke advantage over Turkey Valley.
