In the five years of the Fillmore County Journal Sports, no school has had a season quite like Fillmore Central’s spring. Other schools have had better years, claiming championships (something FC may or may not). None have had four sports programs all advance as far, or further, than ever before at the same time. FC’s golf squad’s, the girls headed by Lane Powell, the boys Brad Holten, won Section 1A titles. Each advanced to state, the boys’ first ever birth. The softball team (a joint program with Lanesboro), headed by Tris Tollefson, ran off four straight elimination game wins to progress all the way to the Section 1A title game, a first. Keith Larson’s baseball team (joint with Lanesboro) came up one game short of the 1A Section title game(s), also a first.

All Falcon Golfers to State

Last year, Fillmore Central’s girl’s golf team punched their first ever trip to state (3rd Place). They entered the 2015 season the defending Section 1A champs. With only one senior graduated, the Falcons were odds on favorites to win the section again. And they did. And their spread was so large, it would make Las Vegas odds-makers cringe. FC (366) began Day Two of the Section meet with a 45-stroke advantage over second place Wabasha-Kellogg (411). They won by a landslide, finishing with a 36-hole four-player effort of 745. W-K (838) finished 93 strokes back! Freshman Grace Miller (175) led FC. She led the entire field after Day One (86), but finished second to Blooming Prairie’s Taylor Christianson (173). The later had been three strokes back (89). A pair of Day Two birdies aided the Blossom-standout’s cause. Christianson shot a Day Two 84, Miller an 89. Falcons comprised three of the next four finishers. They put their entire scoring team in the top six. Eighth grader Madison Scheevel went 92-92 for a 184 to take third. She had six pars her second 18 holes. Senior Katie Tammel (186) and junior Laura Donney (200) held their positions (5th and 6th) from Day One to Day Two. All were members of last year’s state team. Cailey Rindels (233) and Libby Onsager (240) also competed for the Falcons.

The FC boys’ task was much more difficult. Their state birth was more surprising. It took besting a couple teams it had lost to in the regular season. The Falcons posted a 9-4 record, dropping meets to L-A (twice), R-P, and Lanesboro. The Cardinals and Trojans were two of the three teams .....
