Milton golfers head back to state
Milton High School’s girls golf team is headed back to state.
Led by freshman Maddie McCue, the Red Hawks won the Waukesha Sectional in WIAA Division 1 on Tuesday at Naga-Waukee Golf Course in Pewaukee.
Milton finished with a 339 total, while Mukwonago (342) edged Kettle Moraine (343) by one shot to finish second and earn the right to compete at next week’s state tournament at University Ridge in Madison.
Kettle Moraine’s Leighann Cabush was medalist with a 1-over-par 73, while 2009 state champion Emily Joers of Waukesha was second with 73 after losing a scorecard tiebreaker. Those two advance to the state tournament, along with Kettle Moraine’s Ally Amadon, who shot and 80.
Seventh-ranked Milton, which finished second at state last year, got a 78 from McCue, an 82 from Laura Stair and an 85 from Stephanie Stair in qualifying for state for only the second time in school history.
“It was funny,” Milton coach Andrea Wieland said. “As we were driving to the course today, I looked at the price of gas, and it was $3.39. I thought that would be a good score for us today, and as it turned out, that’s what we shot.
“I thought something in the low 340s would be good enough coming in, especially with the perfect conditions today. It was a total team effort.”
Janesville Parker, led by a 91 from Micayla Richards, finished fifth at 372. Janesville Craig was seventh with 410.

Ferrell returns to state
Edgerton High junior Brooke Ferrell has earned a third trip to the WIAA Divison 2 girls state golf tournament after tying third Tuesday in the Wisconsin Dells Sectional.
Ferrell fired an 83 at the Andy North-designed Trappers Turn course to qualify for next Monday and Tuesday’s competition at University Ridge in Madison.
Top-ranked Madison Edgewood won the sectional team title with a 331, while Osseo-Fairchild also advanced by finishing second with a 381 total. Edgerton, the Rock Valley Conference champion, was third with a 394.
Edgewood will be going for its 10th state championship in 11 years.
Ferrell was the Division 2 state runner-up last year to Osceola’s Casey Danielson. As a freshman, Ferrell took fifth individually as member of Edgerton’s state runner-up team.
“Brooke was not on top of her game today, but with what she was dealing with out there, I can understand why,” Edgerton coach Steve Zartman said of Ferrell’s round, which took nearly seven hours to complete. “That much time on the course is taxing on anyone.
“The good thing is that she is getting the chance to play at state again. I still think she has that 69 or 70 round in her.”
