In sports, it is all about momentum and playing your best at just the right time.

A lot of teams and individuals have struggled during the regular season only to suddenly perform their best during the playoffs on the way to the championship.

This perfectly describes the run West Central’s Kenzie Squires has had as she is the first female Blue Devil to qualify for the Girls’ State Golf Tournament. Playing in the Regional final on Monday, May 23, at Buffalo Creek Golf Course in Winthrop, Squires shot an 18-hole round of 92 to tie for fifth place. It was her lowest score in varsity competition. Caitlyn Jacobs of Prince of Peace won the tournament with a score of 82. The top five golfers all advance.

Halva scores for 3rd year in row

 

It was a great finish in the 3200 at the State Track Meet Thursday in Des Moines. Danny Halva (left) and Ogden’s Andrew Stumbo went step for step down the backstretch with the Ogden junior winning in a photofinish, 9: 49.04 to 9:49.05. For Halva, it still meant five team points for NFV. It marked the third consecutive year Halva has scored points at a State Track Meet. He finished his TigerHawk career by compiling 15 points at State Meets, the only points ever scored by the NFV boys.

For the third consecutive year, the iron legs of Danny Halva scored the only points for the NFV boys at the State Track Meet in Des Moines last week.

Halva finished fourth in the 3200, just missing a bronze medal by an eyelash in a photo finish with Ogden’s Andrew Stumbo. Halva ran a personal-best time of 9:49.05 but was less than a half step behind Stumbo’s 9:49.04.
