On Tuesday, April 22, the Caledonia/Spring Grove ladies golf team (3-2, 3-2 TRC) hosted Fillmore Central then made a return visit to Harmony three days later. The league-leading Falcons (3-0, 2-0 TRC) won both matches, the Warriors' first conference setbacks in decades.
The par 37 Ma Cal Grove course was mild but breezy for the week's first meet. Falcon Kati Tammel took meet medalist honors at 48, and FC defeated C/SG in team totals, 213-218.
Rebeckah Schroeder had the low round for the Warriors at 52. Ashley Gavin carded a 54 while Katrina Paulson (55) and Julianna Sand (57) also contributed to the four lowest scores for team totals. Rachel Peterson and Claudia Melde also played on the varsity round.
Nicole Krenzke and Karli Fishbaugher played JV for C/SG.
The return trip's venue was the home of the Falcons, par 36 Harmony Golf Club. Fillmore Central totaled 189 on Friday, while C/SG shot 211.
Falcons Keeley Todd and Grace Miller were co-medalists, at 44. The low round for the visitors came from Gavin (50) followed by Melde (51), Schroeder (52) and Peterson (58). Sand and Paulson also played the varsity round.
"We suffered two loses last week against a very good Fillmore Central team," C/SG coach Jacquelyn Snodgrass said. "Our team score continues to go down, but we are still making a lot of mental mistakes that turn a good round into a mediocre round. We need to work on reducing our number of bad holes and keep our scores a little more consistent.
Snodgrass added that the biggest challenge for the Warriors has been the short game, and limited outdoor practice time has made it tough to work on that aspect.
"Both Ashley and Rebeckah played solid and consistent for us both days. Claudia also carded a nice 51 on Friday. All of the girls are capable of shooting in the 40s or low 50s; we just need to improve short games and eliminate our blow-up holes.
