YOU CARRY THE NAME.....
THE NAME DOESN'T CARRY YOU......
If Delaney Nielsen's hole-in-one on the first day of practice for the St. Cat's Girls Golf Team is a sign of things to come, the Angels have a great season to look forward to. The Senior aced the fifth hole at Ives Grove on Monday to tee-off the first practice of the season.
St. Catherine's returns all five players that played and just missed qualifying as a team for the WIAA State Tournament last season. Standout Senior Sarah Busey also returns. Busey, who had an incredible summer of golf, also missed state last year by just one stroke, as an individual. But the Angels and first year coach Dave Arkenberg have their sites set on bigger things in 2016.
Along with Busey and Nielsen, St. Catherine's returns senior Emma Madden, Junior Ashley Lawler and Sophomore Laney Peterson, all with regular season and post-season experience.
Busey set the world on fire with her play this past summer.
She was on the same Irish Course at Whistling Straits as everyone else was Friday July 1st. The Racine junior golfer's game, however, seemed down the stretch like it was on another planet.
Busey playing a shotgun start, birdied four of her final seven holes to shoot 2-under-par 70 and win the girls overall competition at the prized stop on the Wisconsin PGA Junior Tour.
After starting with a bogey on No. 8, Busey parred her next five holes before her first birdie on No. 14. After a bogey/birdie exchange at Nos. 15 and 16 and another bogey at 18, Busey couldn't be stopped as she made birdie at Nos. 1, 3, 5 and 6 to pull away from Hartland's Emily Lauterbach, the only other girl among the 26 in the field to break 80 with a 78.
Busey also qualified for the Optimist International Junior Golf Championships in Flordia. Sarah won the girls 15-18-year-old division in the Southern Wisconsin Optimist International qualifier at Brown Deer Golf Course in Milwaukee.
Busey fired a 1-over-par 72. It was the best score in both the boys and girls divisions from ages 10 to 18. She then competed in the Optimist International Junior Golf Championships held July 30-Aug. 4 at PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
Girls from around the world competed in the event.
The Angels have the privilege of hosting the WIAA Sectional Tournament at Racine Country Club on Oct. 4. If the season follows suit, expect Arkenberg's team to compete for a top two finish at the sectional tournament and a trip to University Ridge Golf Course for the State Tournament in Madison.
With Busey's summer, Nielsen's hole-in-one, Lawler's ability to drive the ball off the tee and the contributions of Madden and Peterson, the sky is the limit for the 2016 Angel's Girls Golf Team.
Angel Girls Golf Hardware
The St. Catherine's Girls Golf Team opened it's 2016 season in grand style Tuesday at the Union Grove Invite. Playing on the familiar course at Ives Grove the Angels won the team portion of the invite by two strokes.
It was a day of well earned hardware for St. Cat's: Sarah Busey and Emma Madden took second overall at the tourney, while Ashley Lawler and Delaney Nielsen finished third.
The Angels return to action on Wednesday when they travel to Elkhorn for a meet at Evergreen Golf Course.
Members of the St. Catherine's Baseball team played a huge role during the Angels Day for a Purpose on April 29. The team gathered on Old Highway 31 and Estan Hills Road to dig up to Mount Pleasant area planters, and replant them with flowers, plants and bulbs. Those flowers, plants and bulbs have now bloomed and the planters look great. St. Catherine's teacher Diane Putra lives in the neighborhood and has received many great compliments about the planters and the baseball teams's efforts.
