Lady E-Hawks Place Sixth At State Golf
GRANGER – Emmetsburg’s Lady E-Hawk Golf Team closed out the 2016 season with a sixth place finish at the 2016 Class 2A Girls State Golf Tournament last week. The tournament was played May 30-June 1 at the Jester Park Golf Course at Granger.

“This season is a great example of how hard work pays off,” noted Emmetsburg Head Coach Ted Riley. “We lost four very talented players last year, but these girls picked right up where they left off last year and worked very hard.”
