Every shot mattered — and so did every dollar — during Madison Edgewood’s ninth annual Crusade Fore A Cure girls golf tournament, held Monday at Maple Bluff Country Club.
Waunakee’s Sam Soulier shot a 3-over-par 77 to tie Jo Baranczyk of Bay Port for medalist honors. In the team race, Middleton (358) finished one stroke ahead of Waunakee, followed by Madison Edgewood (366) and Milton (368).
And then came the all-important, off-the-course business — the fundraising efforts put in by each of the 19 teams for the University of Wisconsin’s Carbone Center to raise awareness in the fight against breast cancer and melanoma.
According to event organizer and Edgewood coach Peggy Gierhart, more than $17,000 was raised.
Middleton was led by Kate Meier’s 12-over 86.
Edgewood’s Grace Welch and Monona Grove’s Klairissa O’Reilly-Dye each shot 82, Madison West’s Lillian Knetter shot 84, Milton’s Taylor Hakala shot 85 and Jefferson’s Bri Deblare shot 86.

The Golden Beavers had four players break 50 in a victory at Old Hickory in Beaver Dam. Portage’s Sophie Denure earned medalist honors with a 3-over-par 39.
