Wurm earns 4th trip to state golf

Cassie Wurm will represent Hudson at next week's WIAA State Golf Tournament in Madison.

Hudson's Cassie Wurm finished third at Wednesday's WIAA Division 1 La Crosse Sectional at Forest Hills Golf Course to earn her fourth straight trip to the WIAA State Tournament as an individual qualifier.

The Raiders finished fifth overall at the 8-team event.

Wurm carded a round of 83, one stroke behind River Falls' Halle Hauer and La Crosse Central/Logan's Grace Onsrud. Hauer defeated Onsrud in a 1-hole playoff to earn medalist honors.

River Falls won the team title with a total score of 346. Tomah took second with 369. Both advance as teams to the state tournament. Wurm's third place score of 83 earned her a spot at state as an individual qualifier.

This will be Wurm's fourth straight trip to the state tournament. Last year she had her best finish, tying for eighth place with a two-day total of 156.

The WIAA State Girls Golf Tournament will take place Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 10-11, at University Ridge in Madison.
