CRESCO - On a beautiful day for a golf meet on April 23 at home, the Crestwood girls’ team competed well but came up short as Waukon edged the Cadets by a score of 219-220.

“We had pretty good results for our first time on a course,” Cadet Girls’ Coach Jason Sorenson said. “However, we always focus on the process of one shot at a time with a good attitude and visualization. We can always control that part of golf. I think they had a lot of fun playing golf in the sun.”

Cadets beat Decorah
Facing Decorah in a home dual meet on an extremely windy day on Friday, April 27, the Cadet girls’ team notched the win, 201-237.
“We had great scores on our home course, but I’m more proud of the patience we played with today,” Sorenson said. “If we did have a bad hole, the girls did a great job of coming back on the next hole with a great competitive attitude.”
Ashley Voves and Isabella Lehmkuhl tied for medalist honors for the Cadets with a score of 47.
Cadets: Ashley Voves 47, Isabella Lehmkuhl 47, Kryslynn Ruppert 53, Hailey Panos 54, Megan Ferrie 55, Karissa Stika 69.
Decorah: Ann Meirick 56, Audrey Casterton 58, Lily McGohan 61, Tori Hines 62.
The Crestwood girls’ team nabbed first place at the Decorah Tournament on April 28 with an 18-hole team score of 391. Waukon was second at 394 and Decorah placed third at 434.
Isabella Lehmkuhl earned medalist honors with a score of 94 (50-44). Other Cadet scores included: Hailey Panos 95 (51-44), Kyrslynn Ruppert 98 (51-47), Megan Ferrie 104 (49-55), Karissa Stika 128 (65-63).
“This was a great effort and focus for 18 holes,” Coach Sorenson said. “I was very pleased with the composure that the girls played with. Golf is best played with a level head and the ability to focus on one thing at a time. I think the girls are understanding the importance of avoiding penalty strokes.”
