DEMOTTE | In Indiana prep girls golf, one constant has been a Twin Lakes sectional championship.

Host Kankakee Valley had a part in ending one milestone -- and starting some history of its own -- in Monday's sectional at Sandy Pines Golf Course.

The Kougars fired a 362 team score, winning on a fifth-golfer tie-breaker, to end Twin Lakes' state record of 14 consecutive sectional championships. The title is the first in Kankakee Valley's history.

"It's really amazing, just being able to beat them twice (this season)," said Tara Beere, who led the Kougars with an 86. "I knew we could do it."

The teams were even after four scores, but K.V.'s No. 5 golfer, Shanan Patrick, fired a 92 while Twin Lakes' Grace Winkle carded a 116, giving the Kougars the win.

"They really stepped up, didn't they?" K.V. coach Ron Stanton said. "I'm really proud of these girls."

Rensselaer shot a 391 to finish third and qualify for Saturday's Lafayette Jeff Regional. Bobbie Jo Culp was medalist with an 81. Culp rebounded from a triple bogey on the par-5 second hole to post a solid round. She hit a water hazard, then a sand trap, went over the green, on to the green and then two-putted to card an eight. The 81 was still Culp's personal best.

"I've never done so bad on a hole; it was really embarrassing," Culp said. "I was like, 'I can't get wrapped up in this.' I knew there was a lot of golf left, so I knew I could pull it out."

Lowell's Jorden Zubey was the top individual qualifier, shooting an 84 in a round bolstered by a back-nine score of 39. She'll head to the regional along with North Newton's Alisha Watts (91) and Taylor Watkins (99).

"I'm pleased with how I came back with my eight on the first hole," Zubey said. "I knew I had to move on and I knew I could get to regionals. I had to put my mind to it. I knew I could do it, I had to pace myself."
