CEDARBURG GIRLS GOLF
Senior captain Anna Reisinger posted the second-best score of any Cedarburg girls golfer in history at the WIAA Division 1 state meet with her 198 last week at University Ridge.
Reisinger moves into the runner-up spot behind the 189 shot by Anny West in 2011, when she tied for 59th place. She is ahead of Ellie Bowman, who shot a 201 at state.
Reisinger struggled the first day with a 104 but came back strongly with a 94 the second day.
"Those were not great days of golfing for her," coach Curtis Bentley said, "but she held her head high like the leader she is and battled to the very end."
Bentley said Reisinger is interested in attending the University of South Florida next fall.
"She is a good golfer, a great leader and a humble person," he continued. "It's not always winning that defines one's legacy; it's what they do to influence the future that is important in life."
The Bulldogs had a good season, finishing second behind Homestead in every North Shore Conference meet, and Bentley believes they are set up well for years to come.
"Golf in Cedarburg isn't just a sport for boys; it is a sport for girls," Bentley said. "We have an outstanding future and would encourage any girls to give golf a shot."
