Tiger golf sweeps WC

 

Tiger golf sweeps WC

By Jerry Wadian

The Valley boys’ and girls’ golf teams combined for a sweep of West Central in the first meet of the season for both teams.

On Monday, April 8, at Big Rock Country Club in Fayette, the girls’ won, 186-276 and the boys’ triumphed, 177-191. 

With rain and cold weather cancelling early meets and almost all outdoor practice sessions, golfers from both teams were glad just to be on a course again.

The Tiger girls, the sixth-place school in the Class 1A State Meet last year, began 2013 where it left off last season. Jodi Schott earned medalist honors by firing a 43, including two holes at par. 

Lexi Moser beat teammate Chandler Luzum for medalist runner-up honors on a cardback after each came in at 46. Bailey Moser completed the varsity scoring by shooting a 51.

DeVilbiss named All-Iowa Conference wrestler

 

Jayden DeVilbiss, a 2011 graduate of South Winneshiek High School, was named to the inaugural All-Iowa Conference Wrestling Team. 

The 30-member squad is comprised of the top three Iowa Conference place-winners in each weight category at the NCAA Division III Central Region Championships. Luther placed seven wrestlers on the all-league squad.

DeVilbiss, who was a national qualifier for the first time this season, fell one match shy of earning All-America honors. He finished his season with a 29-14 record. He was named the Outstanding Wrestler of the Central Region Championships after capturing the conference championship at 174 pounds. 

DeVilbiss was one of six Luther wrestlers who qualified for the NCAA Division III National Championships.

It is all about the numbers when it comes to golf, and South Winn’s co-head coaches Paul Jungblut and Doug Schweinefus are hoping both are in the Warriors’ favor this season. With 19 boys and 14 girls ready to hit the links, the competition for the top spots has already begun.

Boys’ team

Having lost just two key contributors from a year ago, the South Winn boys’ golf team returns eight of its top 10.

Gone from the lineup are four-year letterman Nick Schmelzer and three-year letterman Jared Holien, but there are plenty of new members ready to fill the void.

In 2012, the Warriors swung through the season with a 9-3 record and took charge of the Upper Iowa Conference Meet to place first with 323 strokes.

Behind host Decorah and Crestwood, another Class 3A powerhouse, the Lady Warriors managed to claim third place on Friday in the team standings.

“Overall, I was pleased with our team’s performance. We were able to accumulate over 90 points, scoring in 17 of 19 events. That is a good start for this team,” said South Winn coach Kevin Kearney.

Despite cold, windy, and damp conditions, the South Winn girls managed several top-three finishes including golds by Abby Phillips in the high jump and Lexie Warth in the 100m hurdles.

Phillips, a junior, also claimed silver in the long jump and was a member of the fourth-place 4x400 team.

With a time of 12:09.23 in the 3000m run, Jessica Lechtenberg claimed the runner-up spot and later garnered a fourth-place finish in the 1500m run with a time of 6:03.84.
