Boys' golf has full week

With two tournaments and a pair of UIC outings, it was a busy week of golf for the NFV boys.

The full schedule began Monday, April 15, with the home opener at Pleasant Valley Sports Club in Clermont.

With West Central only having two golfers, the Blue Devils had no chance of winning. And, it would have taken a very good round to match the TigerHawks’ 182.

Girls' track gives big efforgt

She has good reason to smile during a grueling race, because the senior has been battling leg injuries since early in the basketball season; so, it was good to be back competing at full strength without any pain.

“We were really pleased with the effort from the ladies at this year’s TigerHawk Invite. We’re just as happy for their third place finish as we were with the boys winning,” commented head coach Mark Nuss. 

“We scored well throughout most events and closed out the meet with a win in the 4x400. A few girls are still battling illnesses, but we are now pretty close to full strength,” Nuss explained.

NFV finished just four points away from Waukon, and a point ahead of Sumner-Fredericksburg during Thursday’s big home invite.
