Topsy-turvy weather once again set back plans for the Caledonia/Spring Grove golf teams. Both the boys and girls were able to play on April 29, splitting natches in Decorah, Iowa, before Thursday and Friday meets were either cancelled or postponed.
Julianna Sand had the second best score for the C/SG girls in last week’s road victory over Decorah.
The girls team defeated Decorah 220-226 at Oneota Golf Course. Katie Meyer of C/SG and Talia Raddatz of Decorah shared co-medalist honors at 52.
Other C/SG varsity scores included a 54 from Julianna Sand (a new career low), a 55 from Claire Eglinton and a 59 by Ashley Gavin. Claudia Melde (61) and Rebeckah Schroeder (62) also played for the varsity.
Coach Jacquelyn Hauser reported that Katrina Paulson (62) also played as an individual.
"This was another close match, and the girls did a good job of hanging in there and recovering after some bad holes," Hauser said.
She added that as the team continues to work on their short game, some players are expected to break into the 40s.
