Wakefield golfers crowned champions
Schultz wins Player of the Year honors
Halfway through Tuesday's Cap-7 Conference girls golf season finale at The TPC at Wakefield — her final league match in a stellar four-year career — Wakefield senior Katie Yelle was struggling mightily.
Bogeys filled up her scorecard early, and she couldn't seem to break the trend.
"I was having a rough round to say the least, and I don't know what it was," she shrugged.
But when Yelle turned for a comforting piece of advice from Lady Wolverines' golf coach Rick Riggleman, he offered none to the upperclassmen.
"He actually told me to not be such a freshman," Yelle laughed.

Wakefield golf wins again; Pride in battle for second place
Yelle earns low medalist honors
While the Wakefield girls golf team has all but engraved its name on the Cap-7 Conference title — the Lady Wolverines' win at Hedingham Golf Club Tuesday was their sixth consecutive victory — there is plenty of competition to watch at next week's league finale.
Following its second-place finish Tuesday, Leesville Road staked a one-point advantage over Broughton in the team standings heading into Tuesday's match at the TPC at Wakefield.
Although only bragging rights are on the line — there is no playoff or postseason bid on the line — it should be fun to watch.

Schultz, Yelle lead Wakefield to another victory
Having already completed her golf round Tuesday afternoon, Wakefield freshman Morgan Schultz waited impatiently outside the Wildwood Green clubhouse for her teammate Stephanie Pribonic to appear.
For the past few minutes, the ninth-grader had done the math in her head, and realized the Lady Wolverines — with a good score from Pribonic —could break its school record for a round for the third time this season.
Behind Schultz's 37 — which gave her medalist honors — and Wolverine teammate Katie Yelle's 38, Wakefield had a great chance to pull off the feat again.
When Pribonic showed up minutes later, the teammates locked eyes immediately, and the first words from both girls were "What did you score?"
