Rochester advances to Saturday's golf regional at Sandy Pines

A memorable Rochester girls golf season just added another moment for the srapbook with advancement to the regional.

Rochester's 350 at the Tippecanoe Country Club on Monday was good enough for second place in the sectional.  The Zebras will join Kankakee Valley (333) and Logansport (374) among the top three teams that advance to the regional at Sandy Pines Golf Club.

Olivia Bailey topped the Rochester scorecard with a 79 and tied two others, Bianca Huizar of Winamac and Kankakee Valley's Brynlee DeBoard at the top of the leaderboard. Huizar won a playoff to claim medalist honors and also advance as an individual player.

For Rochester, Ava Thomas shot an 84 followed by Payton Moore (89), Alexis Haughs (98), and Ella McCarter (108).

Caston had three players compete in the sectional led by a 129 from Jullina Sherrick.
