“We had three matches last week, it was a good week for us,” coach Jeremy Leis said. We are getting our scores down to where they need to be. Now we need to keep building on our momentum.”

Pegged as the Three Rivers Conference favorite, defending TRC champion Fillmore Central came to town Friday and left with a four-stroke loss.

“This was a big match for us,” Leis said. “Fillmore Central has a solid team. We needed to shoot well to beat them and we did just that on a cold, windy day.”

Schiltz was match medalist with a one-over-par 37. Ehlers carded a 41, Rud had a 44, Johnson had a 48, Welscher had a 53 and Connor had a 55.

“This is a really nice win for our program,” Leis added.

The Warrior junior varsity lost to the Falcons 192 to 180.

JV scores were: Drew Stemper 47, Cole Konkel 55, Cody Breeser 52, Zach Gavin 52, Carter Mann 48, and David Guth 45.

“This week we have Rushford at home on Tuesday, which will be  another big conference match for us, then we go to Coffee Mill in Wabasha on Thursday for a varsity tournament and round the week out on Friday at Waukon,” Leis stated.
