MONTICELLO | The rain held off just long enough Friday afternoon.

A day after downpours brought between 2 and 3 inches of rain to Northwest Indiana, a break in the weather allowed just enough time for Twin Lakes to take first place at its own sectional at the Tippecanoe Country Club. As soon as all of the players were off the course, the clouds broke open again.

“The course was actually in pretty good condition considering that it had rained the past couple of days,” said Twin Lakes’ Taylor Hornung, who was medalist with a 76. “Our team tends to play pretty well in inclement weather, anyway.”

The Indians shot a 348 to take first place and advance to the Lafayette Jeff Regional on Sept. 28. Also advancing to the regional are Kankakee Valley and Pioneer.

The Kougars gave Twin Lakes a run for its money, coming in second with a 355. Shanan Patrick led K.V. with an 87; Tara Beere followed with an 88 and Bethany Jansma had an 89.

“I’m really pleased,” K.V. head coach Ronald Stanton. “The short game hurt us a little. I saw the girls leave a few strokes here and there. But, we only lost by seven on (Twin Lakes’) home course, so I’m feeling pretty good.”

Pioneer finished with a 378 to take the final regional team qualifying spot.

Rensselaer’s Courtney Feagans (80), North Judson’s Ellie Eccles (87) and Lowell’s Jorden Zubay (90) advanced as individual regional qualifiers.
