Tipton brought home the State Runner-up trophy from last Thursday's Sand Greens State Golf Meet at LaCrosse Country Club.  The top individual finisher for the Cardinals was Kaden Barker, who shot a 90 on the day and finished with a 7th place medal after winning a playoff.  Ben Towner won his playoff as well and took 9th place with a 93.  Other members of the team in order of finish included Eric Koenigsman, Alex Ketter and Tara Ellenz.  This year's group extended a run to eight straight seasons finishing third place or better at the Sand Greens State Meet.

We will announce the winners each week. Remember, you can nominate an athlete from any school sport.
