AINSWORTH WINS ROLLING ROCK - Ainsworth won the 2019 Rolling Rock, defeating Valentine, 20-5, in the annual match play event featuring the top golfers from the two courses. Ainsworth team members are, front row, left to right: Sean Sterkel, Curtis Childers, Nick Martin, Tony Allen and Brett Knoetzel. Back row: Rod Worrell, Robert Magill, Graig Kinzie, Cody Goochey, Terry Allen and Doug Weiss. Not present for the photo was Kevin Martin.

 

Ainsworth recaptured the Rolling Rock from Valentine Sunday at the Ainsworth Golf Course by the largest margin of victory in the event’s history.

Needing 13 points to capture the Rolling Rock while Valentine needed 12-1/2 points to retain, the Ainsworth team won 20 of the 25 points in the annual match play event between the top golfers from the Ainsworth and Valentine courses.

Ainsworth jumped out to a 4-1 lead following the two-man scramble format, increased the lead to 7-1/2 to 2-1/2 with 3-1/2 points in the alternate shot format, shut out Valentine, 5-0, in the best ball format, and won 7-1/2 of the 10 points available in the singles matches for the 20-5 victory.

Next year’s Rolling Rock will be held at the Frederic Peak Golf Course in Valentine.

Concordia University junior Addie Shaw, a Rock County High School graduate, defended her NAIA national title in the discus and helped the Concordia women’s track and field team place fifth nationally during the 2019 outdoor championship meet.

The already strong national reputation for the Bulldog throws program under Ed McLaughlin continues to expand. With national titles delivered this weekend by Samantha Liermann in the shot put and Shaw in the discus, Concordia throwers have now totaled 16 individual national championships over the past six seasons. It took some time for Shaw to embrace it, but she’s come around on the discus. It’s clearly become her top event.

Last year Shaw was somewhat of a surprise national titlist. This year she entered the meet at No. 1 nationally in the event and had the target on her back. With a clear advantage in the finals of the discus, Shaw popped off a throw of more than 154 feet while besting a field loaded with GPAC competitors.

“(High) expectation is definitely a factor,” Shaw said. “I came in with a little bit of nerves for the weekend, but it was calming when the meet got started. Everyone is trying to beat me. I’m not trying to chase anyone else’s mark. That helped the nerves a lot this weekend … No. 2 feels just as great as the first time.”

Shaw also finished seventh in the hammer throw during the national meet.

 

In other recent track and field news, Wayne State College shot putter Ben Allen, an Ainsworth High School graduate, set the school record with a throw of 54-feet-5.25 during the Northern Sun Conference Outdoor Championships, which earned him third in the event. The Wayne State College shot put record had stood for 33 years.
