Thursday afternoon, the Whitewater Whippet golf team finished up the Rock Valley Conference (RVC) regular season with a nine-hole match at Decatur Lakes Golf Course, hosted by Brodhead High School. Leading the way for the Whippets was senior Billie Jo Parker with a final round score of 43. Having led the Whippets all season with a nine-hole average of 43 in conference play, Parker will head to the RVC Invitational next Wednesday, hosted by Riverside Golf Course in Janesville. The four-year varsity player will look to secure all-conference honors at the invite. Parker has been a model of consistency in conference play having fired rounds of 41, 43, 43, 43, 45.
Fellow senior Jacob Zuehlke fired a 48 for his season low score. Seniors Tommy Cushman and Jon Brunner each shot 52, and junior Bowen Babcock followed with a 54.
The Whippets are in action next Monday and Wednesday, playing in the Abbey Springs Invitational and the RVC Invitational. Abbey Springs tee times are set for 12 p.m., while the RVC Invite will begin at 9 a.m.
