Trojan girls strong in 3 golf meets

New Prague High School's girls golf team had three matches last week. The Trojans were third in a Missota Conference match hosted by Holy Angels, placed fourth in the Red Wing Invitational and won the Redwood Valley Invitational.

They are off until Wednesday, May 2, when they host Hutchinson, Northfield and Red Wing in a match at the New Prague Golf Club.

The Trojans were ranked No. 8 in the state by the Minnesota Golf Coaches Association ratings, which uses a system based on an average of team scores. New Prague's Steph Neisen was ranked No. 3 in Class AA.
