Somerset had two seniors complete their high school golf careers at the WIAA Division 2 sectional tournament last Tuesday at Pheasant Hills Golf Course in Hammond.

Ally Wittstock and Cally Meixner earned the right to play at the sectional tournament with strong round at the WIAA regionals. They continued that sharp play at the sectional meet. Wittstock shot a 94 while Meixner finished at 107.

Both of the Spartans played some of their best golf of the season on the front nine at the sectional meet. Wittstock had a 43 on the front, matching her best nine holes of the season, and Meixner finished the front nine with a 52. The scores for both girls went up slightly on the back nine, as they did for nearly every player in the tournament.
