It was senior night for the Hillsboro girls golf team on Friday, Sept. 10, however, it’s pretty much been Meagan Jorn’s night all season long.
The Toppers’ lone senior shot a 47 on her home course at the Hillsboro Country Club to take medalist honors in the match against Lincolnwood.
Jorn started out with pars on the first two holes and didn’t shoot anything higher than a double bogey the rest of the way out.
Aurelie Granito also played for Hillsboro, shooting a 71, but the Toppers were still missing Alex and Sam Frailey due to COVID protocols.
Lincolnwood shot a 236 as a team, with Kaylee Gerlach leading the way with a 57. Marisa Webb was just two strokes behind her teammate, while Jhia Walker and Shelby Hattenbach added 60s for the other two scoring rounds. Freshman Jenna Matli was just behind her teammates by two strokes as she finished with a 57.
Before their match in Hillsboro, the Lincolnwood-Morrisonville girls golf team traveled to Petersburg on Thursday, Sept. 9, for a quad match at Shambolee Golf Course.
The Lancers finished fourth in the match with a 252, five strokes behind PORTA for third. Auburn (204) and Taylorville (218) took the top two spots.
Marisa Webb led the Lancers with a 59 on the challenging par-36 course. Jhia Walker and Kaylee Gerlach followed with a pair of 64s, while Shelby Hattenbach added a 65. Jenna Matli also played for Lincolnwood and shot a 73.
Medalist honors went to Sophia Robinson of Taylorville, who shot a 47 to beat Auburn’s Mailee Shoen by one stroke.
On Monday, Sept. 13, the Lincolnwood girls will be at the Litchfield Country Club to play the Panthers, Carlinville and Southwestern. The next day, they’ll be on the road again as they take on South County and Ramsey at Timber Lakes Golf Course in Staunton.
