DEMOTTE | The Valparaiso girls golf team continued its early-season roll Monday at Sandy Pines.

The Times No. 1 Vikings posted four scores of 85 or better, including rounds in the 70s from both Harley Dubsky and Jennifer Gough, besting the field at the Kankakee Valley Invitational with a 316. No. 3 Lake Central (330) was second and No. 2 Crown Point finished third at 339. Chesterton placed fourth, and Munster was fifth.

Valparaiso has two victories just a little more than a week into the season, and the Vikings have finished no lower than third at an invitational yet.

Dubsky recorded a round of 1-under par 71 to take medalist honors. In her five competitive rounds this season, she is a combined 18-under par.

“It’s a pretty awesome start to her season,” Valparaiso coach Bill Miller said. “She’s firing on all cylinders. It’s phenomenal golf.”

Gough posted a round of 78, while Brooke Fullenkamp shot an 82 and Lauren Caputo added an 85. Valparaiso has bested last season’s best team score (325) four times this year.

“It was a good test on our game management and our iron play,” Miller said. “It didn’t play real long, but it was a tough test.”

Lake Central’s Kylie Shoemake posted the second-best round of the tournament with a 1-over par 73. She carded four birdies on the round, including a 15-footer on the 11th hole.

“I worked so hard for this,” Shoemake said. “My putting really helped me and saved me today. I only had 29 putts.”

 Kiana Jongsma added an 82.

“It’s better than we shot all of last year, so we are headed in the right direction,” Lake Central coach Chris Rossiano said.

Tiffany 'Scooter' Curtis led Crown Point with a 75. She struggled on the front nine but made three birdies and no bogeys on the back nine to shoot 33.

“I wanted to come back strong (on the back),” Curtis said. “I was trying to shoot even and I just started making birdies.”

The Bulldogs, who got rounds of 81 from Alyssa Harvey and 84 from Emily Harvey, had a 339 total.

North Newton’s Alisha Watts shot an 80, while LaPorte’s Delanie Alcorn and Chesterton’s Cara Kroeger each carded 82s.
