Although the Newton girls golf team has only played three meets so far this season, two of its members have done enough to earn some state recognition.
In the first set of rankings from the Iowa High School Golf Coaches Association, junior Madeline Wellik and freshman Jessica Reynolds both earned individual rankings in Class 4A for their efforts early on.
Wellik comes in ranked No. 22 out of the top 40 golfers. Her adjusted gross score stands at 50.93, putting her with four other golfers with a score of 50. Reynolds is just a few spots behind at No. 25 with an adjust gross score of 51.27, joining six other golfers with the same score.
The Cardinals will be back in action on Monday at Pleasant Valley Golf Course in Iowa City.
