Friday the Vikings played in rain, wind, cold and sun but on Saturday they finally got to enjoy a spring day while hosting an 18-hole varsity tournament.
A little bit of everything
The Decorah girls got to experience just about every weather phenomenon Friday as they welcomed Crestwood to Oneota.
The varsity shot a 204 to defeat Crestwood’s 218.
Meet medalist was Savannah Lentz of Crestwood with a 39. Talia Raddatz led the Vikings with a 48. Mary Murphy fired a 49 while Ashley Gulrud toured the course in a 53. Also competing were Melanie Gossman, 54; Alexa Lensing, 56; and Courtney Robinson, 61.
“We teed off in a drizzle, then it got nice, followed by a cold rain, then it was perfect, followed by wind and cold…all in two and a half hours,” said Coach Scott Pierce.
