The Union High School golf team has five meets under its belt, including qualifying. The Knights have had several good performances from their seniors and underclassmen, with Miller leading the way. He shot a 50 in qualifying, followed by a 51 in the meet against Northern Univeristy High. But the last three weeks meant an increase in competition, and Miller improved his game. He shot a 45 against South Hardin, a 45 against Jesup and a 47 against Gladbrook-Reinbeck.
Holub has also posted good rounds, with his best coming in qualifying. There, he shot a 43. After shooting a 48 against Northern, he shot a 54, 48 and 45 in the next three meets.
