Falcon Girls Take Second

It is another step. And head coach Lane Powell couldn’t ask for a much better effort. One year after Fillmore Central’s girls golf team made its first ever trip to state, finishing third, mostly the same group of gals returned. They were bested by just one other team. FC used excellent all-around play each day at the Class A state meet at Pebble Creek Golf Course in Becker to finish as state runner-up. The Falcons (350) sat narrowly in third place after Day One, trailing defending state champion Legacy Christian Academy (346) and Minneota (346). Defending state runner-up BOLD (353) sat in fourth place. Freshman Grace Miller (42, 41; 83) and 8th grader Madison Scheevel (42, 45; 87) were leading the Lady Falcons, Miller in 8th place overall, Scheevel tied for 16th. FC then out-shot the Vikings (Minneota) by nine strokes Day Two to supplant them in second place. They finished with a two day 36-hole total of 701. It was significantly better than FC’s Section title winning mark of 745. The Falcons two state totals, 350 and 351, each bested their top two combined regular season 9-hole totals (178, 180; 358). They played literally their best golf of the year. Minneota (706) took third, BOLD fourth (711). The defending state champion LCA Lions (679) of Andover really upped the ante Day Two, going from tied with Minneota to winning by 22 strokes. Both Kayla Ruf and Sophie Gray put up Day Two 79’s. Ruf, a sophomore, added the same score Day One to finish with a 158, good enough for second place overall. Heritage Christian Academy’s Kiera Smith (153) was the overall medalist. She never cracked 40 on any 9-holes. Gray took fourth overall with a 161. FC’s Miller (166) finished tied for sixth. She was a beacon of consistency, going 42, 41, 41, and 42. For the year, she tallied 19 total 9-hole scores (not counting the shortened TRC Meet). All were below 50. Her best 9-hole score of the year was 40, so she was at the top of her game at the state tournament. She got rewarded, earning All-State honors. Scheevel posted identical 9-hole 44 totals Day Two to finish tied for 15th place (175). All four of her state scores (42, 45, 44, 44) were better than her top regular season score (46). She matched a pair of section scores (42, 44). Katie Tammel, the Falcon’s only senior, went 41 and 50 Day One, then 44 and 43 Day Two to finish tied for 21st place (178). Her 41 was a season 9-hole low. She .....
