Middleton won its fourth consecutive Big Eight Conference girls golf championship in convincing fashion Monday.

The Cardinals, led by individual champion Glenna Sanderson, shot 343 at Evansville Golf Club to finish 38 strokes ahead of second-place Verona.

Madison West (387) took third, while Janesville Parker (389) finished fourth. Janesville Craig (400) was seventh.

Sanderson, Middleton’s No. 3 golfer, carded an 11-over 83 to edge teammate Kate Meier (84) and Parker’s Sophia Dooman (84) for the individual title.

“Sophia knew she had the possibility to win,” Parker coach Mary Ross said. “She’s confident in her game. She’s a true leader for us.

“I think she’s going to have a strong finish.”

Kallie Lux (86) led Craig with a fifth-place finish. Teammate Sara Nerad (95) finished 14th.

The postseason arrives Wednesday for Craig and Parker, which will be among nine teams competing at Riverside Golf Course in the Division 1 Parker Regional.
