Girls Varsity Golf · Fox wins sectional title, golf advances to regional

Senior Annaliese Fox won the individual sectional title Monday, leading the New Palestine golf team to a second-place finish and a spot in the regional.

Fox shot an even-par 72 at The Links, winning the individual title by two strokes.

As a team, the Dragons shot 368. NP was in a three-way tie for second place with Pendleton Heights and Greenwood, but finished second on the fifth player’s score. Greenfield-Central won the sectional title with a 365.

The top three teams advance to Saturday’s Lapel regional at Edgewood Golf Course in Anderson.

Fox shot four birdies en route to her even-par round.

Izzy Gray added a 91. Michaela Purnell shot 97 and Rachel Purnell 108. Megan Diller’s 109 provided the fifth-score tiebreaker that vaulted the Dragons past PH and Greenwood and into the regional.
