Fundermann Earns Trip to State Golf

    The MVAOCOU girls golf team has had an excellent year. At each meet the ladies placed well as a team, and in most at least one member medaled. Their hopes were high on Monday when they played for a chance to advance to State while on their home course.
    "This season has been a roller coaster," exclaimed Coach Kathy Scholl. "With the snowy weather in March and April, we played a huge part of our season in a two week span. The whole team played well all season, finishing strong in many of our meets and tournaments. Our team finished third in the regional finals, shooting a 390, setting a new school record. I'm super proud of our team and everything they have accomplished this year."
    Even though the team played well, they did not qualify to compete as a team at State. However, Sydney Fundermann (daughter of Angie and Bob Fundermann of Anthon) did qualify as an individual.
    "Sydney was moved to the #2 spot on the team later in the season as she was starting to gain momentum, and sometimes switching the girls playing spots on the team is a good thing," continued Scholl. "After that she began to really play to the potential we saw, she played in a group with Senior Erin Lockin from Alta-Aurelia in the Regionals and Regional finals, who is an excellent player and was a good motivator for Syd. Sydney really showed what should could do by shooting a personal record (94) on Monday at the Regional Final."
    "On my last hole lining up my putt I told myself this could make our team go to state," commented Fundermann. "I made the putt, and it ended up being the putt to go to State, but instead of as a team as an individual. I'm proud of all that our team has accomplished this year."
    Scholl believes that it has been around 12 years since the Rams were represented at State.
    "Finishing strong at the end is what every coach wants their team to do, we are very fortunate that we have five strong returning letter winners for next year" said Scholl. "Haylee Halbur was our Senior and she will be greatly missed on our team. Haylee started playing golf her freshman year and made herself a great career here at MVAOCOU. Haylee finished her career with receiving First Team all conference-3 years, second team her freshman year and holds school records for 18 holes (90) and 9 holes (39), the Mapleton Willow Vale low score (43), and the low season average score (45)."
    Sydney will be competing at the state meet on May 29th and 30th. Good performance to her!

    Since March the MVAOCOU track team has been practicing and preparing for their state meet.
    The Ram track team had qualified to run six events total. Dylan Blake (son of Shari and Chris Blake of Mapleton) was competing in the 3200 meter and 1600 meter run. Jordyn Pester (daughter of Sheli and Kevin Pester of Charter Oak) ran in the 200 and 400 meter dash. JoHannah Mckibben (daughter of Matt and the late LeeAnn Mckibben of Mapleton) was running the 100 meter dash. Jordyn Pester, Brenna Lansink (daughter of Diane and Dean Lansink of Danbury), JoHannah Mckibben and Cameron Brenner (daughter of Corey and Matt Brenner of Mapleton) ran together in the 800 meter sprint medley.
    On the first day of the state meet, Jordyn ran the 400 meter dash in a time of 56.63 and won first place. She also advanced to the finals for the 200 meter dash. JoHannah got 6th place in the preliminaries for the 100 meter dash and advanced to the finals. Dylan Blake finished 17th in the 3200 meter run with a time of 10:36.64.
    The last day of the state meet started bright and early with the girls 800 meter sprint medley. They placed first and came within seconds of the state record and had a time of 1:49.09. JoHannah ran the finals for her 100 meter dash and placed 8th with a time of 13.34. Jordyn earned her third gold medal by winning her 200 meter dash and finishing with a time of 25.29. Dylan Blake ran his 1600 meter dash later that day and placed 21st with a time of 4:46.48.
