Central fifth in league women’s golf

Senior Ashley Smith earned all-Iowa Conference honors.

Senior Ashley Smith earned all-Iowa Conference honors.

Central senior Ashley Smith and sophomore Kelsey Van Tasell capped surprising seasons by earning all-Iowa Conference honors at the league women’s golf tournament.

But the Dutch had to play without the team’s No. 1 player, sophomore Taylor Hill, who was sidelined by illness. The team still managed a fifth-place finish. Freshmen Chelsey Shuey and Emily Fisher were 27th and 32nd, respectively.

Smith and Van Tasell made huge strides after finishing 15th and 25th, respectively, a year earlier. They led Central to the Buena Vista Invitational title and a second-place showing at the Central Fall Invitational.

    To Whom it May Concern,
    Your women’s golf team finished 5th in the conference. Not 3rd like stated in the story.
