Prep sports: Behind Glenna Sanderson’s 83, Middleton golfers earn fourth straight Big Eight titles
It wasn’t much of a surprise Monday to see the Middleton girls golf team win its fourth consecutive Big Eight Conference championship at Evansville Golf Club.
What was a surprise was the player who earned meet medalist honors.
Middleton’s No. 3 player, sophomore Glenna Sanderson, shot an 83 to earn the medalist title in the conference meet, postponed until Monday due to soggy course conditions last week.
Middleton’s No. 1 player, Kate Meier, shot 84, as did the Cardinals’ No. 5 player, Danielle Callahan. The state fourth-ranked Cardinals finished with a team score of 343, finishing 38 strokes ahead of runner-up Verona. Madison West shot 387 and Janesville Parker 389.
Janesville Parker’s Sophia Dooman also shot 84, followed by Kallie Lux of Janesville Craig at 86 and Lillian Knetter of Madison West shot 87.
