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).

Tiger golf sweeps WC

The Valley boys’ and girls’ golf teams combined for a sweep of West Central in the first meet of the season for both teams.

On Monday, April 8, at Big Rock Country Club in Fayette, the girls’ won, 186-276 and the boys’ triumphed, 177-191. 

With rain and cold weather cancelling early meets and almost all outdoor practice sessions, golfers from both teams were glad just to be on a course again.

The Tiger girls, the sixth-place school in the Class 1A State Meet last year, began 2013 where it left off last season. Jodi Schott earned medalist honors by firing a 43, including two holes at par. 

Lexi Moser beat teammate Chandler Luzum for medalist runner-up honors on a cardback after each came in at 46. Bailey Moser completed the varsity scoring by shooting a 51.
