The new bathroom as the Golden Hawk girls opened play ,t Liberty. Chad Harland needed some breaks to make a run at the top of the Class 2A individual scoreboard Saturday morning. Iowa City's Finkbine Golf Course didn't quite give him enough breaks on the back nine to do so. Harland, after an opening round 80 on Friday, was just six shots back of Aplington-Parkersburg's Chet Mellema, who fired a low of 74 to lead the medalist chase in Class 2A. The first nine holes of Saturday's round turned him back just a little bit too far. "Friday, his biggest problem was off of the tee," Mid-Prairie coach Jim Hauth said. "His placement on those tee shots just put him into some tough situations." Saturday, on the front nine, his putter turned out to be another trouble spot. "His putter hasn't been working yet today," Greg Harland, Golden Hawk volunteer assistant, said. "He needs to get it working to make a serious move." Harland was three over after the first five holes and then coming onto number nine, he was four over. Number nine was the killer as he put his tee shot into the trees and then double-bogeyed the hole as his putter was again a little short for par. The back nine did produce some good as he scored a 37 to make his second day score an 80, just as his first day's score. "I really had a chance on the back nine," Harland said. "My driver started working better and I was beginning to putt well too. I birdied nearly every hole on the back nine and was within three shots of the leader after 16. I really blew it on 18 though because I hit it into the trees again." The overall title went to Lake Mills' Jay Thompson as he shot a second day 78 and Mellema slipped to an 80. Harland did take ninth as he was in with a two-day total of 160. "He never really made a move," Harland said of Thompson. "He seemed to struggle all day. In the end, he was just far enough ahead to will." Keota As for the Eagles of Keota, Mason City Newman and a tough Class 1A field put them into seventh overall on the team leader board. Keota was eighth after Friday's play but did make a move Saturday and caught Schleswig Ior the seventh spot. Here's how the Class IA field stacked up: I. Mason City Newman650 2.

Mid-Prairie junior first-ever Golden Hawk girl to make state field Of all of the entrants in last Tuesday afternoon's Class 2A regional golf meet at Kalona, there was one girl in particular who was very happy with the site that was chosen. Mid-Prairie's Jenny Jones was that person and she had reason to be happy. Jones took on Centerville's Kelli Carney in a two-girl shootout for medalist honors and she had the home course advantage as Kalona Golf Club was chosen as the site of the meet. "I am really glad this took place on our home course," Jones said. "It made easier tbr me. I don't know what would have happened if I hadn't been playing here." Jones and Carney were even until the final two holes on the front , ine. Jones got up two shots for a 38-40 advantage after nine holes. Two holes after that, she was up four shots and started to roll home. "Kelli told me her irons were the best part of her game," Jones said. "She kept saying she didn't know what had happened to her irons out on the course. She just seemed very frustrated." Into the clubhouse after the final hole of the ! 8-hole event, Jones was the champion with a 75. Carney was second, six shots back, with an 81. Amanda Cruzen of Fairfield took third with an 88 and West Liberty's Charissa Ruess was fourth with a 100. According to Jones, the whole key for her state tournament run lay in the sectional tournament at West Liberty. "I told myself I was going said. "I really hate playing on West Liberty's course and once I won there, I told myself I would just keep going and I still am." "I am so happy that this has happened," Jones said. "I had no idea this was going to happen." As for the team end of Tuesday's meet, Fairfield's awesome fivesome got hot early and never looked back. The Trojans won the meet by a clear margin over the second place Hawks. Jones and the Trojans now headed for the girls state meet which took place Tuesday and Wednesday at Spencer. "I am going to go there to have fun to begin with," Jones said. "I also want to be able to play better each round up there. ! am very to wip that sectional_meet "Jo es Jones --. cont. on page 2t!, O ntatives from the following ons will be on hand preparing samples !eir products: ashington County Pork Producers will be g free pork burgers from 11:00- 2:00 p.m., y of Washington County Pork Producers the Kalona Locker.
