The Milton High girls golf team still has yet to be beaten in 2017.

The Red Hawks dominated their own home invite last Thursday before smoking Oregon on Tuesday for their second Badger South Conference victory in as many tries.

Milton plays at Stoughton at 9 a.m. on Thursday and at an invite at noon on Monday at Maple Bluff Country Club in Madison before hosting Fort Atkinson at 9 a.m. on Tuesday.


The Red Hawks had no issues winning their home best ball invite last Thursday at Oak Ridge Golf Course.

Milton fired a team score of 228 to cruise past the 10-team field. Oregon (263) and Mukwonago (270) took second and third, respectively.

“From the first hole to the last hole, the girls played really well,” head coach Kirk Wieland said. “However, as well as we played, we did not play well the last few holes.

“I preach it to the boys, I preach it to the girls. A lot of matches and tournaments are based on your last three holes.”

Three pairs of players made up each team. Each pair would play a hole and the team would take the better score of the two players.

Seniors Mia Seeman and Alyssa Cowley teamed up to shoot an even-par 72 and take first place. The duo was 3-under-par heading into their last four holes but bogeyed three of the final four.

The Hakala sisters – junior Taylor and freshman Callie – posted a 76 to take second. Senior Holly Gunnink and sophomore Claudia Seeman scored an 80 and placed third.

“All the girls bogeyed their last holes alone so we have to try to finish a little bit better,” Wieland said.


Mia Seeman and Taylor Hakala paced the Red Hawks to their second conference win of the season on Tuesday at the par-36 front nine of Foxboro Golf Club in Oregon.

Mia Seeman fired a 3-under-par 33, while Taylor Hakala was at even-par 36. Claudia Seeman finished with 40 and Gunnink rounded out the team score at 44.

Callie Hakala’s 54 was not counted.

Andi McCorkle (40) led the way for the Panthers.
