Mustang girls win NW meet

Thursday, May 8, 2008

The Newell-Fonda girls brought their "A" game to the Northwest Conference golf meet Monday evening at Sioux Rapids, played in the best conditions of the year.

Kelly Johnson carded a 44 to take medalist honors for the Mustangs, while Laurens-Marathon's Kylie Woodley also shot a 44 for runner-up.

The Newell-Fonda team, with its consistent play, shot 187 to win by a comfortable 23-shot margin.

Trisha Johnson had a 49, Susan Kies and Kari Bodholdt each shot a 52, Becky Seivert 53, Hannah Rossiter 56.

Laurens-Marathon was a distant second with 210. In addition to Woodley, Holly Anderson had a 51 and Haley Moore a 56 to lead the way.

Alta and Pomeroy Palmer tied for third with 213. For Alta, Kolbie Boom shot 51, Alyssa Engelke 53, Kelsey Barker 54. Jill Erickson had a 49 to lead Pomeroy-Palmer.

Sioux Central was fifth with 224 on the home course, led by Jessica Stoner's 53, Jessica Romo with a 55 and Bailey Herrig with a 57.

Aurelia was sixth at 233. Amanda Swanson was low with 53, followed by Amanda Felton's 54. Aurelia had only four golfers on hand.

St. Mary's was last with 261 - but since the team only has three golfers, they had to take 90s for the other three positions, as Aurelia had to do for its two unfilled slots.

Ashley Miller again led the Panthers with a 53, and they were one of only two teams in the tournament in which all players broke 60 - Erin Broich and Caitlyn White carded 59's.
