Wauwatosa's co-op girls golf team has had the individual medalist in each of the first three Greater Metro Conference mini-meets.

It was senior Katie Gastrau earning the top spot at the mini-meet at Songbird Hills Golf Club on Sept. 8, as she shot a 38 to edge teammate Rachel Kauflin and two other golfers by one stroke.

Gastrau and Kauflin entered the conference mini-meet on Sept. 12 tied for first place in the Greater Metro individual standings.

"Their consistent play has them tied for the top spot in the conference at this juncture of the season," Wauwatosa coach John Ravenola said. "They both have been playing great golf, and it is just fun to watch them compete."

Each player's highest individual score is dropped at the end of the conference schedule. Kauflin, a freshman, opened conference play with a 43 but has come back with rounds of 37 and 39. Gastrau has fired rounds of 38, 41 and 38.

With two 9-hole mini-meets and the 18-hole conference meet remaining, Kauflin and Gastrau sit at 76, while DSHA's Lorenza Martinez is at 77 and Brookfield Central's Emily Balding is at 78.

Wauwatosa had its best team showing of the season at the Sept. 8 mini-meet, as it shot a 181 to edge Brookfield East for third place. The strong mini-meet allowed Wauwatosa to move into a tie for third place with Menomonee Falls in the overall team standings.

Junior Alex Ramos shot a season-best 49 at Songbird Hills, while sophomore Allie Boeckmann finished with a 55. Junior Tess Russ (62) and freshman Chandler Yow (64) rounded out Wauwatosa's lineup.
