Middleton’s girls golf team is currently ranked No. 5 in Division 1.

The way the Cardinals have trended this season, though, they’re still being undervalued.

Middleton won the ‘Crusade Fore a Cure’ hosted by Madison Edgewood at Maple Bluff on Aug. 27.

The Cardinals then won the Blackwolf Run Invite last Thursday and cruised to a Big Eight Conference win at the Janesville Parker Triangular.

The ‘Crusade Fore A Cure’ raises money for the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center and awareness of breast cancer and melanoma research. This year, Middleton raised more than $2,100 as a team.

“This is always such a great event,” Cardinals coach Becky Halverson said. “It's about so much more than the golf. I am so proud of them for their efforts with this.”

Halverson was also quite proud of how her team played.

Middleton shot a 358 and edged Waunakee by one shot for the team title. Madison Edgewood was third at 366 and Milton was fourth at 368.

Kate Meier led the Cardinals with an 86. Glenna Sanderson and Makenzie Hodson carded 88s and Ellie Frisch shot a 96.

“The golf course was in great shape despite all the rain,” Halverson said. “This was a great win for us. The girls were very excited.”

The Cardinals were just as excited after their terrific showing at Blackwolf Run.

The event was shortened to nine holes due to rain, but Middleton ran away with the team title. The Cardinals shot a 168 and bested runner-up Franklin by 10 shots. Cedarburg (186), Hartford (186) and Bayport (189) rounded out the top five at the 14-team tournament.

Meier was fifth individually with a 41, while Sanderson and Frisch tied for sixth at 42. Milanne Dahmen was eighth with a 43.

“I was very happy with their play here,” Halverson said. “The highest score anyone on the team had on a hole was a six, which was a big improvement for us.”

Middleton then shot a 339 at the Parker Triangular held at Riverside Golf Course. The Vikings were a distant second at 415, while Madison La Follette didn’t field a full team.

Meier led the way again with a 77, followed by Hodson (84), Frisch (86) and Dahmen (92).

“We are back at Riverside on (Sept. 15), so this was a good practice round for the girls since only a couple of them had seen the course before,” Halverson said.
