Grundy Center High School has won a pair of state golf titles this spring. The girls won the class 2A team title on Wednesday while the boys won the 2A championship last week. That continued what has been an outstanding year for the school. The girls basketball team won the 2A state title in March and the volleyball team made it to the state semifinals in November. “The students and the coaches have worked extremely hard this year,” says Grundy enter athletic director Rollie Ackerman. “I think the students have had a real enthusiasm, a real passion for the activities that they’ve been involved in this year and then you couple that with, you know, you have to have talent.” Ackerman says there were a number of other highlights as well. For the first time in history, the girls and boys track teams won the North Iowa Cedar League track meets and the boys cross-country team qualified for the state meet for the first time ever. The school’s football team was district runner-up. Grundy Center’s boys basketball team was district runner-up, too. A group of veteran coaches deserve much of the credit, according to Ackerman. “We’ve got a very stable coaching staff here (who’ve( been in the business for a long time,” he says. And it is not over yet. Grundy Center has five girls competing this week for individual tennis honors and the girls tennis team will compete in the state meet on Saturday. Grundy Center won the state academic decathalon as well.
