The Lady Indians golf squad closed strong at Friday’s sectional at Valparaiso Country Club to punch their ticket to next Saturday’s Lafayette Golf Regional. After a rough start to the day on the front 9, the team played a great back 9 to finish 3rd, just 4 shots behind 2nd place Chesterton. Senior Olivia Wood finished in 4th place with an 84 (shooting a 1-under par 34 on the back 9!), Senior Peyton Panozzo shot 106, Senior Hannah Doell shot 108, and Senior Gina Kapinos shot a 116 to round out the scoring. Freshman Jordan Jacobs carded a 126 in first postseason round.
This marks the second straight year the team has advanced to the Regional at Battle Ground, which will take place next Saturday.
