Shiocton’s golf team played at Whistling Straits near Sheboygan April 23 in a match that included all of the Central Wisconsin Conference plus Marathon High School. It was set up as a fun event for all of the kids. Whistling Straits will host the 2010 PGA Championship in August this year, the second time they have done so.
“The kids played well considering the difficulty of the course,” said coach Terry Schwaller. Adam Lembcke had a great round with a 94.

Teams: Amherst 374, Bonduel 389, Manawa 371, Iola 366, Marathon 357, Wittenberg-Birnamwood 383, Weyauwega-Fremont 368, Marion 520, Menominee Indian 390, Pacelli 335, Shiocton 416.

– Shiocton hosted a CWC match versus Manawa and Wittenberg-Birnamwood on April 26. Shiocton finished in third place after a night of struggles by nearly everyone on varsity.
“The guys really had a hard time, which was really surprising. Players were shooting more than 10 strokes off of their averages last night, which did not help the cause. After practice last week, we looked as if we couldn’t be touched at Eagle Creek, but it did not carry over to the round,” Schwaller said.
Team scores were Manawa 188, Wittenberg-Birnamwood 201 and Shiocton 228.
Colin Winter shot a personal best, 52, which led Shiocton. Mitch Meisenhelder shot 58, Jacob Riehl and Lembcke 59 and Kyle Rietveld 64.
JV also had good performances from Skylar Finder and Kyle Scott, who each shot a 54.
