Kate Wurflova performed well as the first Luxemburg-Casco golfer ever to attend the Wisconsin Girls State Championship Oct. 14-15 at University Ridge Golf Course in Madison. Wurflova participated at the Division 2 level and finished tied for fifth with a score of 162 over two rounds.

In the first round, Wurflova scored an 83, 11 over par. Her day included two birdies, four bogies and four double bogies.

The second day of competition had Wurflova finishing with an 79, seven over par. Wurflova, who earned medalist honors at the Bay Conference meet, finished with one birdie, six bogies and one double bogie on the 18th hole.

"I play well in the rain, so I can't say it was bad for me," said Wurflova, a foreign exchange student from the Czech Republic. "I think I will want to come back and play at a college here. A lot of coaches came and talked to me, and I think it was really a big chance for me."


The Luxemburg-Casco boys soccer team defeated Seymour 2-1 Oct. 10 in Bay Conference play.

Keegan Sewell had seven saves in the goal, while Luke Frankow made a goal with the help of an assist from Evan Deprey. Nick Johnson scored the second goal with an assist from Tyler Zimmerman.

The Prairie School visited Luxemburg and defeated the L-C boys 5-2 in a nonconference game. L-C's Nellis scored the first of the Spartan goals unassisted and Johnson scored the second with an assist from Zimmerman.

Sewell and Jacob Massart had a combined 25 saves for L-C.

The Spartans won the first round of the WIAA tournament at home Oct. 15 against Seymour with a score of 5-0, bringing L-C's overall record to 12-7-3.

Austin Nellis scored off an assists from Johnson, and Johnson went on to assist Zimmerman for the second goal. Seymour made an own goal and Zimmerman made the fourth with an assist from Nellis. Spencer Collin made the final goal for L-C with a penalty kick. Sewell had five saves in goal.

"What a great way to open up the WIAA tourney with a good win," head coach Blair Bandow said. "It is not easy to beat an opponent three times, but the boys showed they could do it today. We are hoping to carry on this good play to the next round."

L-C was scheduled to travel to New Holstein/Elkhart Lake for a second-round game on Oct. 17.


The Spartans volleyball team traveled to De Pere and finished fourth in the Gold Bracket.

L-C won over Little Chute and Pulaski and lost to Kimberly in pool play. In the Gold Bracket, the Spartans suffered losses to Appleton North and Kimberly.

"To finish fourth was a little disappointing to honest, I thought the girls really played well today for the most part," Head Coach Jeff Frey said.

The Spartans had late leads in all three of the losses, but were not able to hold on for the wins.

"We have been working on a few new things here for the end of the year and the girls did a nice job running them," Frey said. "I think we are starting to get to where we want to be, come tournament time, just need to learn how to finish now."

L-C went on to play Hortonville at home Oct. 15, losing three out of four games.

"It was a little disappointing to end the conference season with a loss," Frey said. "We made a couple of mistakes that you can't make against a good team like Hortonville."

Game stats were 25-20, 21-25, 24-26 and 20-25. Sarah Kinnard of L-C contributed 12 kills, 20 digs and three aces with Amada Oeder's 29 assists for the match.

"I thought our right sides played well, it was really exciting to see. We came out playing well in game one, but then had some issues," Frey said. "We are still looking to get that consistency throughout an entire match."
