Newton girls golf makes return to state
The Newton girls golf team has had a rough season. This is not to say they have played poorly, actually it’s quite the contrary — six different girls have shot in the 40s. However, the nature of the weather has kept practice time to a minimum as well as canceled several meets, which could have helped the team improve and hone its skills. As anybody who has played golf regularly knows, the more practice, the better.
Despite these obstacles of climactic resistance, the team has made it to the state tournament following a second place finish at regional competition, which took place at the team’s home course on Monday. The Cards had a team score of 376, edging out Vinton-Shellsburg by six strokes to keep their season alive. Grinnell won the meet with a 353.
“This just proves what we have been talking about all year,” Newton coach Scott Enyart said. “We have a really deep team, and our depth came through for us today. This was a true team effort.”
