Waukon boys golf team has season’s future determined by seventh-place finish at 2A Sectional Tournament

The Waukon boys golf team had the future of its 2018 season determined Thursday, May 10 at its Class 2A Sectional Tournament hosted by New Hampton. The tournament had actually been moved up one day earlier from its original Friday, May 11 date due to anticipated rainy weather.

Likewise, none of the individual Indian golfers finished high enough to earn further advancement down the postseason tournament road in individual medalist play.

TEAM SCORES
New Hampton 327; Denver 335; North Fayette Valley 354; Sumner-Fredericksburg 358; South Winneshiek 361; Osage 361; WAUKON 382; MFL/MarMac 500

The Tribe’s other meet of the week, a Tuesday, May 1 meet at South Winneshiek was postponed to Thursday, May 3 before finally being canceled altogether after another round of stormy weather rolled through the area.
