---- — NEW SHARON – It was a beautiful day for golf Thursday as North Mahaska and Belle Plaine squared off in boys and girls action.

However, Belle Plaine was just a bit better and won 173-182.

The Plainsmen had four golfers under 45 to win the match. They were led by Ryan Zumback with a 40.

The meet went much better for the North Mahaska girls.
