The Westosha Central boys golfers will represent Falcon Nation at Monday and Tuesday’s WIAA state tournament in Madison. Tuesday’s sectional participants are (from left) Gavin Goldstein, Paul Lynch, Jack Polick, Zach Kramer and Bailey Menarek. Polick described the feeling of advancing to state Tuesday night: “Having the opportunity to compete in my first state appearance with my entire team is one of the best feelings you could ask for. Competing and winning in a 10-man playoff to advance makes it even more special. It shows this team’s grit and determination.”
