Our number four Mid-Prairie sports story from the last school year has us talking about action on the links for the Mid-Prairie Golden Hawk girls golf team. The Golden Hawks shot 206 as a team for nine holes, second best in the River Valley Conference. Their team score of 404 per 18 holes was also second best. Abbi Patterson led the way for the Golden Hawks with a 50 average per nine holes, fourth in the RVC. Her 97 average per 18 holes was fifth in the league. Mid-Prairie finished third at the River Valley Conference championship meet in Muscatine with a score of 415. Patterson and Abigail Statler were elite all-conference team members with their scores of 99 and 100 respectively. In the postseason, Mid-Prairie took the regional title in the first round, with a team score of 410, edging Prairie City Monroe by a single shot. Patterson was meet medalist with a round of 99. Despite not qualifying for the state tournament as a team, Patterson advanced to Ames with a round of 94 in the regional final, finishing in fifth places as an automatic qualifier. At state she shot a career best 85 on day one, sitting in 14th place. She followed that up with a 92 on day two to finish with a 177 in 19th place.
