Collin Gavin’s stint as the first NFV boys to make the State Golf Meet was a short one as storms rolled through the Marshalltown area Friday morning. With over 11.5 inches of rain in six days, the course just could not hold any more water. Thus officials   cancelled the second round of action.

In fact, the Class 1A and 3A tournaments were also cancelled.

That meant the awards were based on the scores from Thursday.

Softball rallies to win opener

NFV opened the 2019 season with a win at home Wednesday, May 22, over Riceville. However, it took a last-inning, three-run rally to secure a 4-3 win.

 Neither offense could do much early. The TigerHawks threatened in the second. With one on, Abby Reichter and Kennedy Lape hit back-to-back screaming liners  – both right at the center fielder.

The Warrior boys’ golf postseason officially began Friday, May 10, at the 1A Sectional meet at Silver Springs Golf and Country Club in Ossian.

South Winn shot its lowest 18-hole score of the year on its way to a first place finish (359) on the day.

“All of our six players finished in the top 11 as individuals,” said coach Mike Wenthold after the meet. “This shows our ability to compete all the way up and down the lineup. It was awesome to see us win a lot of individual honors in a meet with seven teams. Also, winning a Sectional title was a goal we set for ourselves at the beginning of the year, so coming through on that one is nice.”
