Local Girl Linksters Qualify for State Meet


Northeast Iowa is becoming a premiere area for girls golf the last couple of years, and yesterday was no exception. Both the Charles City Comet and Nashua Plainfield girls golf teams qualified for their respective state golf tournaments. The Comet girls competed in Waverly at their Municipal Golf Course against a very tough field. Behind meet medalist Megan Joeger who shot a 77, the Comets earned a second place finish behind Cedar Rapids Xavier to earn their fourth straight trip the big meet. The Comets shot a team score of 348 which not only was the second best score in Waverly, it was the second lowest score out of all of the qualifying meets. Charles City will now set their sights on Ames Golf and Country Club which is the site for the Class 4A State Meet.
The Nashua Plainfield Husky girls golf team competed in Cascade yesterday and advanced to the state golf meet after winning the regional with a score of 371 team strokes. Sarah McMichael was the meet medalist as she blew the field away as she carded a 74 which was seven strokes better than any other golfer at the regional. The Husky girls will now be getting ready to play in the state meet which will be held at American Legion Golf Course in Marshaltown.
The Rockford Warrior girls golf team also competed in a regional yesterday, but their season came to a close with a third place finish at Meadowbrook Golf and Country Club in Hartly. The Rockford girls finished with a team score of 417 which was 16 strokes off of second place. No individual Warrior girls were able to make the cut.
