It took a few extra days, but the Iowa Falls-Alden/AGWSR Cadets finally got their season opener done after weather cancelled the home Cadet Invite at Mayne’s Grove. That was supposed to happen the previous Friday. Instead, the Cadets used last Tuesday’s Newman Invite in Mason City to test their competition legs.
With three ranked boys’ teams and one in the girls, as well as three ranked individual boys and two ranked girls, it wasn’t an easy opener. Still, both the boys and girls grabbed two top-20 finishes, led by Jase Beaubien (15th) and Jacob Michaelson (20th) for the boys and Teah Miller, ranked 29th (2nd) and Abby Harding (4th) for the girls. The squads finished seventh and fourth respectively.
