Holly Murphy and Kallie Lux are headed back to the WIAA Division 1 state girls golf tournament.

Murphy, a senior from Lake Geneva Badger, shot 2-under 69 at the Kettle Moraine Sectional at Legend at Bristlecone on Tuesday to earn medalist honors and advance to state as an individual.

Kallie Lux, a Janesville Craig junior, shot 87 and was one of the other two individual qualifiers out of the sectional.

Kettle Moraine shot 330 to run away with the sectional title. Union Grove shot 359 to join Kettle Moraine in the state field. Badger was third at 371, with Craig fourth (378) and Milton sixth (421).

Murphy is looking for a third consecutive top-10 finish at the state meet, which is Monday and Tuesday at University Ridge outside Madison. She was 10th a year ago and tied for eighth as a sophomore.

Lux will play at state for the second straight year after tying for 28th last season.

Milton was led Tuesday by freshman Hannah Dunk’s score of 90. Parker senior Bria McDade closed out her career with a 106.

Murphy and Lux are the only area players who will play at University Ridge.
