Cardinal golfers fall to Norwalk
The Newton girls golf team had their most solid performance of the year on Thursday, according to their coach Scott Enyart. However, the team was not able to overcome Norwalk, which shot a school record 182. That was five strokes better than Newton’s 185.
The low score for Newton belonged to Madigan Hillyard, who shot a 46. Hillyard’s round highlights included a birdie on the par-3 ninth hole. Hillyard stuck her shot, which was over the water, on the ninth to within 15 feet, and she drained her birdie putt. She also had a par on hole three, hitting her second shot out of the rough to within six feet. She was able to two-putt to secure par.
Bailey Kellogg, Madison Wellik and Carrie Cunningham each shot 47s to fill out the remainder of the scorecards for the Cardinals. Kellogg had a similar shot to Hillyard’s on hole three, and she was able to duplicate the effort, making par as well. Wellik got into a bit of trouble on holes three and nine, but she was able to bogey or par the rest of her holes to keep her score under 50. On hole seven, a par-4 with the wind at her back, Wellik drove the green and three-putt for par. Cunningham had a very solid round as well.
