NFV golf take dual from Trojans

By Becky Walz,

Caleb Kurtenbach was the medalist in the Trojans' win over NFV.

After picking up wins in their first outing last week, the Turkey Valley golf teams fell to North Fayette Valley at Pleasant Valley Golf Club near Clermont Monday.
Playing a bit short-handed, the boys tallied a 189 to the TigerHawks’ 173.
Caleb Kurtenbach went eagle-par-birdie over his last three holes to win by two strokes to overcome a disastrous nine on Hole 4. In the end the senior earned overall medalist honors with an even 40.
Oliver Schmitt carded a 43 to place third as only a balky putter cost him a chance to duke it out with Kurtenbach for the top scoring honors. Logan Busta (52), Braylen Byrne (54) also scored for the Trojans, while junior Calen Franzen (57) and senior Bode Balk (60) rounded out the varsity scorecard.
In girls’ action, the Trojans were 20 strokes back of NFV at 225 to 205.
A strong start paved the way for the standout sophomore, Annika Bodensteiner, to finish as the runner-up medalist with a 51, just one stroke behind the leaders. Junior Morgan Vesetcka was also steady with a nice 54. Junior newcomer Delaney Busta (58) showed a lot of promise. Meanwhile senior Mariah Throndson (62) and sophomore Karstyn Lukes (71) can always be counted on to give a solid effort as they rounded out our scorecard.
Turkey Valley will host South Winn Thursday, April 18, at 4 p.m., the close out the week against Tripoli at Jackson Heights Golf Course Friday, April 19, at 4 p.m.
