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.
