Falcon Girls Golf Wins East


Mon, May 23rd, 2016
Posted in All Sports

Fillmore Central girls golf beat Caledonia (195 to 205) and top conference competitor La Crescent (182 to 186) to clinch their third straight TRC (East) title. Freshman Madison Scheevel (47) was the medalist versus the Warriors, with Grace Miller and Laura Donney (48) a shot back. Versus the Lancers, the sophomore Miller shot a 41 and Scheevel a 43 to lead FC. Lancer Alex Nutter (40) was the medalist. Donney had a 46. Lane Powell’s girls, the two-time defending section champs, last year’s state runner-up, have been under 190 in all but one meet. They are 7-0 in the TRC, 9-0 overall, with an eighth and tenth win coming automatically versus an incomplete W-K squad in the conference finale. With six total medalist honors, Miller has led the way (42.8 average). Fellow varsity veterans Scheevel (46.2) and the senior Donney (46.3) are FC’s next two golfers. Tayah Barnes (50), Cailey Rindels (51.5) and Elayna Kiehne (51.5) typically vie for the fourth position. FC is looking for its third straight state birth.
