In less than ideal conditions on Monday, May 9, the West Central boys’ and girls’ golf teams set out to different courses to take on the rest of the Upper Iowa Conference.

The girls’ team traveled to Guttenberg Golf and Country Club in Guttenberg, where it played in cloud cover and wet conditions for the 18-hole match. For most meets the Blue Devils golf just nine holes, which meant the conference tournament really pushed both teams mentally and physically. The Lady Blue Devils finished in the middle of the pack (sixth) with a team score of 466 while North Fayette Valley took home the gold with a team score of 374.
