Middleton’s girls golf team finished in third place at the Madison Edgewood Invite held at Maple Bluff Monday.

Milton and Verona tied for first place with 331 scores, then Milton won the title in a playoff. Middleton shot a 336, five shots behind the leaders.

“We stuck around to watch the two-team playoff for first place and then we talked about what they saw,” Middleton coach Becky Halverson said. “It was good to hear about what they learned and I think this will help drive them in their future matches and tournaments.”

Cardinals junior Alexis Thomas shot a 1-over-par, 75 and finished third individually. Senior Loren Skibba shot a 78 and was fifth. Middleton also counted a 91 from junior Morgan Miles and a 92 from junior Morgan Narowetz.

“It was great for Alexis to come back after her struggles at Sixmile (in Waunakee),” Halverson said. “Loren had one rough hole and was able to bounce back and finish in fifth place, which is great.” 

Middleton also cruised at the Janesville Parker Triangular last Thursday. The Cardinals shot a 317-team score, good for a 39-shot win over runner-up Parker.

“I was very proud of the girls and how well they all played that day,” Halverson said. “If we can keep improving and shoot around that 320 mark, that will be a really good thing.”

Skibba led the way with a 75, while Narowetz shot a 79, her lowest score ever at MHS. Miles also posted her best-ever score at Middleton with an 81, while Thomas carded an 82.

“They were really in their zone,” Halverson said. “I also gave them a team putting goal for the day, which was for everyone to average two putts or less on every hole and they were able to hit that goal for the first time, as well. Little by little, we will keep working on our goals to get to our final goal.”

• On deck: Middleton is off until Sept. 9 when it competes at the Morgan Stanley Shootout at University Ridge.
