CL golfers earn post season honors



The Iowa High School Golf Coaches Association released its post season honors this week.  Clear Lake’s successful girls and boys programs were represented.

Malorie Fischels, a CLHS senior, was named to the Class 4A First team All-State.  Teammates Paige Backhaus, a junior, and Megan Loux, a senior, were named to the Second Team.

The association also lists an All-Tournament Team following the State Meet.  Loux, who tied for fifth at the State Meet, was named to the Class 4A First Team.  Fischels, who finished ninth at State, was a Second Team selection.  The Lions finished third in the Class 4A State Meet field.  Due to inclement weather, the State Meet was shortened to a nine-hole tournament.

On the boys side, Clear Lake sophomores Dane Waldron and Tommy Schick were First Team All-Tournament choices.  Waldron  finished in a tie for second among Class 3A players, while Schick finished in a tie for sixth.  The Lions placed third as a team.
