The Fond du Lac girls golf team got its duel season off to good start, edging the Galloping Ghosts 205-209 at Countryside Golf Course in Kaukauna.
Shania Shibbelhut led the way for Fondy with a 47, followed by Madeline Krolczyk (50), Courtney Kohlmann (54) and Cassidy Kahl (62).
“This was a great start for this young team,” Fondy coach Paula Suemnicht said. “We need to clean some things up on and around the green. There are too many extra strokes on the card right now because of these areas. This group practices hard, so I’m confident we will ee them in the 40s consistently.”
On Tuesday and Wednesday, the Cardinals played in a two-day meet at Trappers Turn Golf Course in Wisconsin Dells. There, they placed 19th out of 24 on Tuesday and 13th on Wednesday — shooting a 414 both days.
Schibbelhut placed 12th overall Tuesday and Krolczyk was 23rd.
