The Verona girls golf team took 20th out of 22 teams at the 11th annual Crusade Fore a Cure on Monday, Aug. 30, at the Maple Bluff Country Club in Madison.

The Wildcats split a Big Eight Conference double dual on Friday, Aug. 27, at the Glen Erin Golf Course in Janesville. Verona shot a 401 and lost by six strokes to Janesville Craig. The Wildcats defeated Madison Memorial because the Spartans had only three golfers. Each team uses five golfers and the top four scores count.

Verona freshman Laila Ehiorobo tied for 27th-place at the Waunakee Invitational on Wednesday, Aug. 25, at the Meadows of Sixmile Creek Golf Course.

Crusade Fore a Cure

The Wildcats shot a 4-over-par 78 in the Crusade Fore a Cure scramble on Aug. 30 at the Maple Bluff Country Club in Madison.

Madison Edgewood coach Peggy Gierhart, whose team hosts the event, said the 22 schools combined to raise $27,535, raising the 11-year total to more than $149,000, which goes to specifically breast cancer research being done at the UW Carbone Cancer Center in Madison.

“We wear pink and come together as one team to support a cause that is so near and dear to everyone,” Gierhart wrote in a Facebook post.
