Nekoosa girls golf takes second in first home match
For the Rapids City Times
NEKOOSA – The Nekoosa girls golf team hosted its first-ever Coulee Conference match on Sept. 9 on the Lakes course at Lake Arrowhead.
“Rain, cold, and wind played a huge factor in the meet as the course had a lot of water for the girls to contend with,” said Coach Jen Jackson. “The Lady Papermakers had the goal to play well on their home course and they did just that, finishing in second place overall as a team.”
Nekoosa was led by Jade Hildebrand and Britt Cyboran, both shooting a 47 and tied for third as individuals, just six shots behind second place and eight shots behind the medalist.
“I am very proud of how our girls came out and played today,” Jackson added. “They wanted to show the conference the type of golf we play in central Wisconsin and how difficult our course can be. It is too bad the weather did not cooperate because it would have been nice to see how the girls played without the casual water they were dealing with today.”
Izzy Escamilla and Hailey Brown rounded out the Nekoosa score with a 57 and 77 respectively, and Kit Krotzman also carded a respectable 85 on varsity.
The Coulee Conference for Girls Golf consists of teams from Nekoosa, Arcadia, Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau, Cochrane-Fountain City, Black River Falls, and Westby/Viroqua – a unique conference that is made up of schools from three different school conferences: Coulee, Dairyland, and South Central.
