LANCASTER - With second-place finishes in their last two meets, the Southwestern girls' golf team is doing very well this season. Last Thursday evening at Lancaster, coach Albert Reiff's squad placed second of three teams, shooting a team score of 257.
Taking first at the meet was Darlington-Cuba City, who shot a 203, while the home Arrows did not have enough member to warrant a team score.
It was junior Nicole Brotzman leading the way for the Wildcats with a 22-over-par round of 58. She was followed by Sarah Lindenberg's 62, Emma Droeszler's 66, Gabby Finns 71 and Abby Kunkel's 78.
This past Monday evening at the Darlington Country Club, the Southwestern ladies finished second to the host Redbirds, with a team score of 228. Darlington-Cuba City finished with a 202 on their home course, while Prairie du Chien shot a 262.
Senior Stephanie Appleby shot the team's best score of 52 on the par-35 course. Lindenberg finished with a round of 57, while Brotzman had a 59, Droessler a 60 and Kunkel a 61.
"The Southwestern girls exhibited excellent improvement," said coach Reiff. "I am very proud of the progress they have made. The girls shot a team score of 228, an improvement of 37 strokes from just two weeks ago."
Next Monday evening the Wildcats will host Prairie du Chien, Lancaster and Darlington at Cole Acres for a 4 p.m. start.
