Fillmore Central got its first ever (solo) state birth back in the fall, courtesy of volleyball. Now it can order a second state banner. The girls golf squad bested (379) adversaries W-K (403) and Blooming Prairie (410) to win Section 1A. FC rode the foursome of junior Katie Tammel (5th-tie, 93), senior Keeley Todd (8th-tie 95), Madison Scheevel (8th-tie, 95), and 8th grader Grace Miller (10th, 96). They were the only team to put four girls in the top ten. Scheevel, a 7th grader, actually had the team’s low 9-hole score (45). The Falcons have yet to lose this year; 12-0 in the regular season; TRC, 1A-East, and 1A champs. Coach Lane Powell (FC’s band director) has his club’s clubs finely tuned. Laura Donney (soph) and Elayna Kiehne (fresh) round a squad that has one girl each grade 7-12. L-A’s Elli Hennessy was meet medalist (82). Kingsland’s Karli Bly finished third (87) and individually advanced to state. On the boy’s side of things, Falcon junior Jordan Miller continued his standout season by medaling. He shot a four-over par 75 (two birdies, 11 pars, 4 bogies, 1 double bogey). Trojans Hudson Stensgard (82, 4th) and Charlie Krambeer (83, tied for 5th) helped the R-P boys squad to a section runner-up with their state worthy efforts. R-P (344) finished four strokes behind section champ L-A (340). FC’s Trevor Barnes (83, 5th-tie), Houston’s Sam Ross (84, 9th), and Lanesboro’s Liam Dorn/Jonathan Bierman (86’s; 11th-tie) just missed the state cut. Krambeer and Barnes were part of a four-man contingent that played a play-off hole to determine the last two entrants to state.

Chatfield Baseball State Bound

The 2013-2014 sports season just wouldn’t be complete without a Chatfield team making a state run. Brian Baum’s guys (ranked #11) played excellent all-around baseball in winning six consecutive elimination games including downing #2 in state W-K twice for the section title. They are state bound. Lewiston-Altura was one foe on Memorial Day. The Cards (10-11) beat Chatfield (16-3) in a 1A East semifinal days earlier, 8-3. Things seemed headed in the same direction. Aaron Hohensee’s fifth inning double made it 2-1 L-A. At that point, they had nine hits, Chat two. John Heim was in control on the mound; then not so much. In Chat’s fifth, he issued a pair of walks and gave up a pair of hits, the biggest a two-out two-run single by Ethan Woltz (3-2). In the sixth, he issued another walk. Successor Cullin Neec .....
