The boxes keep getting checked.

And the way Middleton’s girls golf team is headed, it won’t be long until they have all of them marked.

Middleton won the Big Eight Conference tournament last Thursday at Evansville Golf Course.

The Cardinals shot a 336, well ahead of runner-up Madison Memorial (380).

Kate Meier won medalist honors with a 79, while Ellie Frisch was second with an 83. Milanne Dahmen was fourth with an 85, while Amanda Beckman was seventh with an 89.

“Winning the Big 8 was one of our goals at the beginning of the year, placing a check mark by that box is always exciting for the program,” Middleton coach Becky Halverson said. “With Glenna (Sanderson) out of the line-up, we were able to play both Amanda and Milanne in the top five, providing valuable experience for both. All five girls finished in the top 10, which is a great individual achievement for each of them.”

The Cardinals were also scheduled to compete at the WIAA Division 1 Baraboo Regional Tuesday, but rain moved that event back until Friday.

The top four teams at regionals will move on to the DeForest Sectional, which will be held Monday at Lake Windsor Golf Course. The top two teams at sectionals advance to the state tournament, which will be held Oct. 14-15 at University Ridge Golf Course.

“The postseason is always an exciting time,” Halverson said. “The girls worked through the offseason, and have seen it pay off in the regular season. They believe in each other and care for one another. We are excited to see where it might take us.”
