Edgerton High's Drew Pipik is heading back to state for a fourth straight year.

The Crimson Tide senior shot 75 at the WIAA Division 2 boys sectional golf meet at House on the Rock on Wednesday. He finished tied for fourth and earned a trip to state by advancing through a playoff.

Edgerton, the 2012 Division 2 state champs, was coming off three straight state appearances but finished fourth as a team, shooting 327. The top two teams and top three individuals from non-qualifying teams advanced to next week's state tournament at University Ridge. Play begins Monday.

Pipik finished in the top 20 in all three of his previous state appearances. He tied for 18th as a freshman, shooting a two-day total of 164, was tied for 12th (159) as a sophomore, and tied for 15th (154) last year.

In Division 1, DeForest and Fort Atkinson claimed team titles at Watertown Country Club. Lake Geneva Badger shot 339 to finish fourth, while Milton was seventh (344) and Beloit Memorial eighth (348).

Janesville Parker junior John Milner shot a 79 to lead area golfers, but he fell one shot shy of earning a spot in a playoff for a trip to state as an individual. Vikings teammate Bobby Wyss carded 83, while Janesville Craig's Nolan Moran and Troy Lipker shot 89 and 90, respectively.

At the Division 2 New Holstein Sectional, East Troy senior Justin Fleury shot 78 to finish fourth and advance as an individual to the state tournament.
