The TigerHawks started the week by sweeping MFL/MM, 12-7 and 11-4, Monday, June 5, in West Union. Over the weekend, NFV split four games at the Jesup Tournament.

Monday, senior Megan Feldman got NFV off on the right foot in game one with a towering fly ball that cleared the right-field fence with plenty to spare for her first varsity homer.

The TigerHawks added five more runs in the second and four more in the third to take a commanding 10-2 lead.

However, the Bulldogs managed a four-run fifth to stay in the game.

The game ended with a MFL/MM pop fly behind Feldman at second. As she backpedaled, the wind blew the ball far enough to tick off the end of her glove. However, it deflected right into the glove of hard-charging right-fielder Jenna Bruns, who alertly snared the ball for the final out.

The Warriors sent a pair of talented young golfers to the 2017 Iowa High School State Golf Meet in Granger last week as senior Skyler Luzum made her fourth consecutive appearance in the tournament and junior Jaden Schweinefus made her third.

After a disappointing opening day, which saw her shoot an 89, Schweinefus rebounded with a 72 on day two to earn a third-place finish among Class 2A golfers. Her round also came in as the lowest single round score of the tournaments, an entire five strokes lower than the next lowest.

“She struggled with her chipping on day one, but on day two, it all came together,” said coach Doug Schweinefus. “The course is par 71, so she was just one over for the day.”

Luzum opened the tournament with a strong day one, where she shot an 83 and found herself tied for third place going into the second day.
