After finishing seventh at last year’s Northeast Iowa Conference meet, the girls made a big jump this season, all the way to fourth.
Decorah toured the course in 421 strokes at Oelwein. Charles City won the meet with 381 strokes. Waverly-Shell Rock came in second with 392 while New Hampton was third with a 396.
The meet was originally scheduled for Monday but was postponed due to rain.
