Waukon girls golf gets new season underway

The Waukon girls golf season got underway with what was supposed to be a very busy week of three meets but, instead, got continually less busy with just one complete meet, one partial meet and one that was completely called off over a period of four days. Regardless of the extent of competition, the Indians had just one player taking to the course, as freshman Alyssa Connelly is this season’s lone team member.

That season began with a Monday, April 4 road date at Oelwein, where Connelly shot a nine-hole total of 76 strokes in her varsity debut. The Oelwein host squad tallied a team total of 217 strokes.

The Indians were slated to host South Winneshiek Tuesday, April 5 as part of a girl-boy doubleheader. That meet got through nearly two holes of competition before rainy, windy weather forced the meet to be called off with no results recorded.

Fueled by Kansas, Annabelle Dibert wins The Standard’s 2022 Bracket Challenge

The 2022 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament has come to an end after Kansas was crowned this year’s NCAA Champion with a 72-69 win over North Carolina Monday, April 4. With that final game determining this year’s tournament champion, the same can be said for The Standard’s Bracket Challenge, as, much like Kansas in the NCAA Tournament field, Annabelle Dibert of Lansing emerged atop this year’s collection of entries as the Bracket Challenge champion.

Standing just two points apart heading into Monday night’s championship game, Dibert and Stan Johnson of Holly Hill, FL were two of just six entries who had some combination of three teams remaining out of this year’s final four teams in the tournament, with no entries picking all four teams correctly.

2022 Waukon boys golf team returning letterwinners ... Left to right: Dylan Hogan and Cody Huinker.

The Waukon boys golf team of 2022 will return a pair of varsity letterwinners from last season, that experienced pair leading a collection of 11 players making up this spring’s squad. Having to replace a large group of seven graduated seniors that made up half of last season’s squad, this year’s Indians will try and do that with an influx of nearly that many first-year high school golfers.

That pair of letterwinning returnees includes one golfer who was in that same situation last season as a freshman, as sophomore Dylan Hogan and junior Cody Huinker bring back their varsity experience from last spring. With nine of this season’s 11 players being sophomores or younger, there will be plenty of opportunity to continue to build the program for the future.

“We will be looking for some younger underclassmen to step up and fill the other varsity spots,” Waukon boys golf coach Tharin Benson said.
