A win over Stockbridge was the highlight of four recent matches for the Shiocton golf team.
April 27, Foxfire Invite at Foxfire Golf Club, Waupaca
This invitational was an 11-team contest which included all of the CWC schools plus Assumption from Wisconsin Rapids.
“While most of our team struggled through the front nine at Foxfire, they played a great back nine. However in the end we finished 10th out of 11 with a score of 424,” said coach Terry Schwaller.
Adam Lembcke led the Chiefs, shooting a 93. Stevens Point Pacelli won with a 330 team total with Shiocton at 424.
For the Chiefs, Colin Winter shot a 105, Kyle Rietveld a 111, Jacob Riehl a 115 and Mitch Meisenhelder a 118.
April 29, non-conference duel at Hickory Hills Golf Club, Chilton
It was super breezy with constant winds in the 20s and gusts well over that. In the end Shiocton pulled out the win with a 206 to 212 victory. Rietveld shot a 47, with Lembcke close behind with a 49.
“Considering the conditions everyone played really well,” Schwaller said. “Jacob Riehl put together a nice string of holes, as did Kyle Scott. Colin Winter also played well, and has been a surprise stand out for the season, locking into the No. 3 spot, after roughing it out on JV last year. It was a fun outing all around. Stockbridge has some good players, and our kids get along well, so the competition is a lot of fun.”
May 3, Conference Match at Weymont Run, Weyauwega
Shiocton played against Weyauwega-Fremont and Bonduel, ending up in third place. The junior varsity actually shot several strokes better than varsity did.
Meisenhelder, playing on JV, shot a 47, Shiocton’s best score, with Dale Laedtke (also JV) tying the best varsity score of 50, which Adam Lembcke had.
“It was tough to watch, and as a coach I need to better evaluate my players for their skill set and match them to course conditions,” Schwaller said.
W-F had 173, Bonduel 190 and Shiocton 223.
May 4, Bonduel Invite at Sentry World, Stevens Point
Weyauwega-Fremont led with 345, with Shiocton carding a 454 to finish last in the eight-team meet.
Lembcke led with a 107, with Rietveld at 113, Winter at 119, Meisenhelder at 123 and Dale at 115
“Sentry World plays tough off of the tee, which we just could not hit. Even though our iron play and short game we good, too many bad lies to start holes really did some of the guys in,” Schwaller said.
“Overall, the guys felt like they did okay in parts of their game, and now have a focus for the end of the season. After our match at Stockbridge last week, they know how they should be playing, and are eager to work things out in time for the conference tournament.”
