The Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union held their Regional Golf Finals yesterday with several area teams in action.  The Charles City Comet girls golfers were at the Waverly Municipal Golf Course playing eighteen holes to see if they could advance to the State Meet.  As a team, the Comets shot very well as they finished in fourth place with a team score of 385.  Unfortunately, the Regional Final only sends the top two teams to the State Meet, so the Comet girls did not qualify as a team.  The Comet girls were also unable to get anybody through individually as it took a score of 86 to qualify.

The Nashua-Plainfield Husky girls golf team finished second as a team yesterday at their Regional Final held at Buffalo Creek Golf Course in Winthrop.  The Huskies narrowly knocked out Rockford as Nashua finished with a 391 as a team while Rockford ended up with a 393.  Kelsey Poppe led the Huskies with a 92 which put her in the top five overall.  Nashua’s girls also got contributions from Haley Hillesheim who shot a 97, Hailey Schmitz who carded a 99 and Megan Cerwinske who ended up with a 103.  Rockford’s Sydney Fullerton was able to qualify for the State Meet as an individual as she finished the day with a score of 91.  Michaela Krull with a 98, Theresa Jones with a 100, and Kylee Smith with a 104 rounded out the scoring for the Warriors.  The Nashua-Plainfield girls golfers and Sydney Fullerton of Rockford will now focus their attention on the Class 1A State Golf Meet which will take place next Tuesday and Wednesday at Jester Park Golf Course in Granger.

The Osage Green Devil girls golfers were in Parkersburg yesterday for their Class 3A Regional Final at Legends Trail Golf Course.  The Green Devils fell short of the top two teams as Clear Lake finished in first place with a team score of 368, North Fayette Valley claimed second with 380 team strokes and Osage took third with a score of 399.  Courtney Tusler led the Green Devils with an eighteen-hole score of 88 to qualify her as an individual for the State Meet.  Sophie Miller had a 98 for the Green Devils and Emma Williams and Abby Wagner rounded out the scoring for the Green Devils with a 107 and 108 respectively.  New Hampton’s Mya Anderson with a 95 and Ellie Ewert with a 98 also were in action yesterday, but failed to finish in the top five individually, so their season came to a close.  Tusler advances to the Class 3A State Meet which will be held at Coldwater Links in Ames next Tuesday and Wednesday.

There were also some baseball and softball games in our area scheduled for last night.  The Charles City Comet baseball team had their game with Clear Lake cancelled due to the weather.  The Comet boys will hope to begin their season tonight at home against Mason City.  Weather permitting, we will have the game live on the air right here on KCHA.  The Charles City Comet softball team will also play at home tonight as they get set to host North Butler at Sportsman’s Park.  First pitch is scheduled for 7:15.

The Nashua-Plainfield vs. Rockford baseball and softball games were also postponed last night due to the weather.  The baseball game has been rescheduled for tonight in Rockford while the softball game has yet to be rescheduled.
