FRANKFORT | A little wind never bothered these girls.

Despite heavy winds and tough conditions, Homewood-Flossmoor took first place at the 2010 Homewood-Flossmoor Co-ed Classic Inviational Saturday afternoon at Green Garden Country Club.

The Vikings were led by senior medalist Michelle Mayer and senior Ryann Gilley who finished fifth. Waubonsie Valley took home first place in the boys competition with a score of 302, while Prospect took first place in the co-ed championship with a combined boys and girls score of 632.

"You have to think a lot more about where you're going to aim and how you're going to play the wind," Mayer said of the conditions. "I had been practicing my lower punch shots in the wind yesterday and it helped a lot. I was putting very well too."

Mayer, an Illinois recruit, was four under at one point in the day, but finished the round with a 70, two strokes under par. Teammate Gilley shot a 77, while Lauren Dawson shot a 79 for the Vikings.

"I finished the first nine even, then I had a couple bogies on the back nine," Gilley said. "The wind affected it a lot on the back nine and it did affect some of my shots because I don't hit it very far."

On the boys side, the Vikings had trouble coping with the conditions, struggled throughout the day, and shot a team score of 335.

"The conditions made it a little bit tough today, but we're definitely capable of playing better," H-F boys coach Chris Stiglic said. "We've got to start working. We've got three weeks until conference to take it seriously."

Marian Catholic's Bree Veazey shot a 82 on the day and finished in ninth place in the girls individual standings. It is the second year in a row the Homewood-Flossmoor girls have captured the title.

"We all played really well today," Mayer said. "We just held it together and all enjoyed playing in this tournament."

Homewood-Flossmoor coach Rick Pavinato was quite pleased with the play of his girls.

"The girls played really well today," Pavinato said. "A couple of the girls shot a little higher than they thought, but I think it has to be due to the wind."
