It was a terrific week for the Sun Prairie girls golf team as it tuned up for postseason play.

The Cardinals won Wednesday’s Janesville Parker Triangular after shooting 379 at Riverside Golf Course, par-72.

Lexi Veldkamp shot a 91 while Abby Rahn carded a 92 to lead Sun Prairie to a convincing victory over Parker (432) and Beloit Memorial, which had an incomplete score.

Margo Woldt (95) and Ela Becker (101) rounded out the Cardinals’ scoring.

“The team went away with a win, not only because of scores but also because of the sunshine, the friendships, and the love of a lifetime sport,” said head coach Shana Tiltrum.

The Lady Cardinals finished with a team score of 393, finishing behind only Middleton (323) and Bay Port (329) at Brown County Golf Course.

“I’m so proud of these girls,” said Tiltrum. “I knew it was going to be a great day just sensing their energy before we even left the parking lot.

Sophomore Lucy Strey paved the way carding a 93 on the par-72 course.

Rahn and Woldt both came in next with identical rounds of 98, while Veldkamp completed Sun Prairie’s scoring with a 104.
