Milton, Parker, Craig, Edgerton's Ferrell advance to sectional golf
Ashton Stair and Karlee McCue shared top scoring honors to spark Milton High School to a WIAA Division 1 regional girls golf title at Oak Ridge Golf Course on Wednesday.
Milton carded a 364 to win its second regional championship in three years.
Janesville Parker finished second with a 385, Janesville Craig was third at 400, and Elkhorn took fourth with a 405. Each team earned a berth in the Janesville Parker Sectional next Tuesday at Riverside.
Individual sectional qualifiers include Nikki Masterson of Beloit Memorial, 49-47—96; Katy Kanelos of Lake Geneva Badger, 48-54—102; and Jordan Majewski of Fort Atkinson, 53-50—103.
The sectional’s top two teams and the top three individuals who are not members of those teams advance to the Oct. 13-14 state tournament at University Ridge in Madison.
Milton’s Stair and McCue each posted an 87 in the regional. Stair won medalist honors in a scorecard playoff.
“The conditions were tough,” said Milton coach Andrea Wieland. “It was windy and cold, and we’ve been spoiled with good weather.’’
Stair started her front nine going birdie, eagle, birdie, but followed the dazzling string with a triple bogey. Stair went 48-39, while McCue shot 46-41.
“Ashton was a little disappointed,” Wieland said. “She had a rough front nine, but Karlee shot a personal best.’’
Parker’s Molly Rozeboom shot 43-47—90 to finish fourth. Craig’s Lindsey Beals carded a 44-47—91 to finish fifth.
“We didn’t play our best golf,” Parker coach John Zimmerman said of the Vikings’ effort. “We played well enough to get to the sectional, and that was our goal.’’
The path to the state tournament won’t be easy as five of the state’s top 15 teams will be vying for state berths at Riverside.

Edgerton’s Farrell second
Edgerton High School junior Allyssa Ferrell shot a 7-over-par 38-40—78 to finish second in the WIAA Division 2 regional Wednesday at Prairie du Chien Country Club.

“It was extremely hard conditions, windy and cold,” Edgerton coach Ken Haugom said. “If your approach was not below the cup, you would three-putt in a blink of an eye.’’
Haugom said Ferrell, who tied for third place at the 2007 Division 1 state meet and third in her first state Division 1 meet as a freshman, adjusted well to the conditions.
“She managed the round well under the conditions,” Haugom said.
Edgewood, Darlington/Cuba City, Lancaster and Wisconsin Dells advance to the Wisconsin Dells Sectional next Tuesday at Trapper’s Turn.
Individual sectional qualifiers include Ferrell, Kristie Waynick of Prairie du Chien and Southwestern’s Kelly Runde.
