HAMMOND | Though she admitted she hasn't been golfing up to her potential lately, Munster senior Kamryn Klawitter regained her confidence Friday.

Klawitter carded an 8-over 80 to earn medalist honors and help Munster advance to the LaPorte Regional on Sept. 25 with a third place team score of 385 at the Bishop Noll Sectional at Lost Marsh.

After shooting an 89 at the Northwest Crossroads Conference meet on Sept. 11, Klawitter welcomed the strong showing Friday.

"I'm pretty happy with today. I definitely had a good front nine (37) and got off to a good start," Klawitter said. "I was in a good frame of mind today. It was one of those couple-week stretches where I haven't been playing really solid, but today I got in a nice rhythm."

Crown Point captured its goal going into the meet, winning the team title with a 375 score, beating DAC rival Lake Central by just one stroke.

"We got 13 or 14 holes in before there was even a 10 mph wind," Bulldogs coach Mike Cronkhite said. "It was definitely a good day to play this course."

The Bulldogs were led by Carolyn Kupchik's 81. Though she was disappointed about not being the medalist, C.P.'s team victory certainly made up for that. She also had to overcome both a double-bogey and triple-bogey to post the solid round.

"There was a little bit more pressure than the past few years playing here," said Kupchik, who last year shot a medalist-earning 79 at the sectional. "I'm so excited. I'm glad we finally get to come home and say we got a trophy for something -- and hopefully get recognized by our school."

Highland's Brianne Torrenga was the top individual to advance to the LaPorte Regional after carding an 83. Griffith's Alexis Morikis (90) and Andrean's Katie Derek (92) rounded out the individual qualifiers.

Torrenga shot a 94 last year in poor golfing conditions, but to improve by 11 strokes left her quite pleased. Highland had one of its best finishes of the season at 398, but the Trojans finished fourth to miss the team cut.

"Today was really amazing," Torrenga said of her individual performance. "My putting was really good on the front (38 score)."
