Danielson back, still favorite to defend MBC title WednesdayA little trip to Scotland didn't stop Osceola golfer Lindsay Danielson from winning another Middle Border Conference meet Monday in New Richmond.
NEW RICHMOND - A little trip to Scotland didn't stop Osceola High School golfer Lindsay Danielson from winning another Middle Border Conference meet Monday in New Richmond.
Danielson had missed playing last week as she was in Scotland for a world junior tournament. She'll continue her international play this weekend and early next as she was named to the U.S. Junior Ryder Cup Team, which will take on the European Union squad next weekend in Olympia Fields, Ill. in the Chicagoland area.
While gone, New Richmond's Alex Wheeler crept closer to her in the point standings after winning a conference meet in Hammond.
Yesterday in New Richmond Danielson shot a nine-hole 34 while Wheeler and teammate Leah Bauer both shot 42s to tie for second. NR edged Osceola in the team score 179-180.
So when the conference meet takes place tomorrow in New Richmond at the New Richmond Golf Course starting at 9 a.m., New Richmond and Osceola and Danielson and Wheeler are the only ones still standing for the title. NR leads the Chieftains 79-72 in team points and Danielson leads Wheeler 70-65.
Ellsworth's Aubrey Langer and Karissa Seibel and Prescott's Katie Filkins will look to finish in the top 15 in the individual points standings to make all-conference. Langer is currently in seventh place with 46 points while Filkins and Seibel are both tied for 14th with 12 points each.
