Hawk teams golf at Belle Plaine

BELLE PLAINE — Lynnville-Sully’s golf teams competed in a South Iowa Cedar League triangular meet on Monday hosted by Belle Plaine.

Iowa Valley won the girls division with a 213 with Lynnville-Sully tallying a 220 score.

Belle Plaine did not have a full team for the 9-hole meet.

Lynnville-Sully did not have a full boys’ team for a score.

Iowa Valley won the meet with a 169 and Belle Plaine had a 194.

Lynnville-Sully’s Tessa Van Maanan was the runner-up for the girls with a 48 while Iowa Valley’s Paige Wieck earned medalist honors with a 44.

Iowa Valley’s Breven Platt shot a 38 as the boys’ medalist.

For the Hawk girls, Kenzi Lanser carded a personal-best 54.

Shaleah Van Wyk and Kayla Van Dyke each finished with a 59.

Brooke Maston had a 79 and Dakotah Bokhoven had an 80.

“Kenzi had a great day. She shaved 10 strokes from her last meet,” Lynnville-Sully head coach Alison Knouse said.

“She was connecting really well with her driver and putting the ball right down the middle which put her in great condition to get to the hole in regulation.”

Miles Mintle led the Hawk boys with a 65. Luke Kramer shot a 67 and Logan Ingersoll had a 70.

“The boys were frustrated with their scores. This week we will really focus on our mental game and not letting a bad shot affect us the rest of the meet,” Knouse said.

Knouse said the weather was great but overall the golf course conditions were poor.

“Nothing rolled true on the green as they were very shaggy. The rest of the course hadn’t been mowed yet. Players were starting to get frustrated because they would lose their ball in the middle of the fairway,” Knouse said.

Lynnville-Sully’s boys and girls host Colfax-Mingo at 4:15 p.m. on Thursday at Diamond Trail Golf Club in Lynnville.
