Central finished second at the Wartburg Women’s Golf Tournament

The Waverley-Central College women’s golf team is part of the 36-hole 14-team Wartburg Spring Invitational Four-Way Logjam for second place after a round on Saturday.

The Dutch lead Gustavus Adolphus College (Lightning) with Grinell College and the University of Upper Iowa at 313. Bethel University (Min.) Is in front of 304. The White team, Central’s second unit, is ranked 11th out of 358. The University of Dubuque, ranked first by the Dutch for the American Rivers Crown last fall, is ranked sixth out of 317.

McKenzie Bigs (Second Year, Bloomington, Ill., Common HS) And Delaney Underwood (Jr., Mitchellville, Colfox-Mingo HS) Each shot on the Par-70 Waverly Golf Course and Country Club was 77. They finished ninth individually.

“I know Delaney wants to come back at number 17,” said the coach Tabitha Schumacher Said. “She was 2-over-par, then took 9. But she played 17 good golf holes. She was not very happy that it was good to put a round like that last weekend. One bad hole happens, but she still put in a solid round that we can use.

“McKenzie (Big House) finished strong. I think she was in the ninth over 2-over. It was really good.”

Madison Clark (Jr., Bloomington, Ill., Central Catholic HS)
Shot 78, Thea Looning (Jr., Mason City) And FIG Peyton Bitnar (Second year, Bettendorf) There were 86.

Lydia Grond (Freshman, Hull, Boydon-Hull HS)
White scored 79 for the squad.

“It was a big round for her,” Schumacher said. “She’s first in the seventies, and it’s exciting.”

After another week of harsh spring weather, the teams played in favorable conditions on Saturday, but lined up for a more challenging day scheduled for Sunday’s final round starting at 9am.

“We played well, but there’s still a lot of golf. Tomorrow is really going to be windy. We need to put ourselves in a good place and stay positive, knowing that bad shots are going to happen and grind.”
