LP girls golf 8th at KV Invite, SC 12th
La Porte's girls golf team placed eighth (441) in Monday's Kankakee Valley Invitational at Sandy Pines Golf Club. Gabby Hull paced the Slicers with a 105, and Jayme Noll tallied 107. Abby Casto had 109 in her 18-hole debut, and Lauren Miskowicz shot 120. South Central recorded 12th (522), led by Eve Masson's 118. "Although our girls came in 12th, they really are showing improvement," coach Gloria Horn said. "We had two bogeys on a very tough course. I saw each of them hit some pretty good shots that they had not been making a few weeks ago. If each of my girls had one, two less shots per hole, we could have placed in the middle of the pack. Two less shots per hole and we would have been in fourth." Crown Point won the event (332). North Newton's Mackenzie Dresbaugh earned medalist honors with an 80.
