The Warriors sent a pair of talented young golfers to the 2017 Iowa High School State Golf Meet in Granger last week as senior Skyler Luzum made her fourth consecutive appearance in the tournament and junior Jaden Schweinefus made her third.

After a disappointing opening day, which saw her shoot an 89, Schweinefus rebounded with a 72 on day two to earn a third-place finish among Class 2A golfers. Her round also came in as the lowest single round score of the tournaments, an entire five strokes lower than the next lowest.

“She struggled with her chipping on day one, but on day two, it all came together,” said coach Doug Schweinefus. “The course is par 71, so she was just one over for the day.”

Luzum opened the tournament with a strong day one, where she shot an 83 and found herself tied for third place going into the second day.

The South Winneshiek baseball team got its 2017 campaign started Monday evening, May 22, in Calmar as Class 2A perennial power New Hampton came to town.

While the game began Monday, inclement weather intervened and forced the conclusion of the contest to be determined the following day.

With New Hampton holding a narrow 2-0 lead after three innings of play, the Chickasaws flexed their muscles in the fourth and fifth innings, scoring five runs in each, to end the game with a 12-0 final.

Head NFV softball coach Bob Lape’s chief area of concern to start the season was pitching depth.

Thursday, the duo of Makenna Koch and Kennedy Lape made their first varsity starts. Combined, they surrendered just 11 hits and one earned run as NFV swept Saint Ansgar in the opening games of the season, 3-0 and 3-2, in West Union.

Game one saw the first six batters from both teams go down in order.
