     Anamosa won the girls’ meet 176 to 216. Kelly Winter led the Wildcats with a 48, followed by Faith Hunt with 53, Erika Supple with 57 and Chloe Roling with 58.

     Two Wildcats competed in the boys’ meet, with Austin Snyder scoring a 53 and Tony Offerman getting a 62.

     “I was happy with our performance, as our overall scores were lower than they were (April 20),” Maquoketa Valley coach Tim Andrews said.

     On April 24, the Wildcats played host to North Linn in a dual meet. The MV girls defeated the Lynx 205 to 260. Hunt was medalist with a 49, and Supple tied for second with a 51. Roling shot 52 and Winter had 53.

     North Linn was the boys’ team winner with a 202. MV shot 229, led by Offerman, who was runner-up medalist with a 51. Garrett Lahr shot 53, Snyder had a 58 and Morgan Hermanson scored 67.

     “Overall we had many people with personal records,” Andrews noted.

     Maquoketa Valley then played host to Alburnett April 26 at Hart Ridge, and split the two meets. The Wildcat girls won 207 to 259, led by Winter, who was meet medalist with a 47. Hunt was second with a 48, Roling shot 55, and Supple added a 57.

     MV’s boys lost 181 to 233. Snyder shot 53, Offerman had a 55, Hermanson scored 61 and Garrett Lahr carded a 64.

     “I am very encouraged by the consistency we are starting to show, especially with our younger golfers,” Andrews said.
