RENSSELAER | Valparaiso’s girls golf team saved its best for last.

The Times No. 1 Vikings finished a stretch of six tournaments in eight days by tying the school-record for lowest team score (307) in winning the Rensselaer Invitational at Curtis Creek on Tuesday.

The mark of 307 also set a new team-record at Curtis Creek, bettering the 2006 team by one shot.

“I put pressure on the team to low today, and they responded well,” Valparaiso coach Bill Miller said. "This was by far our low round of the season. The girls were very happy to beat 308.”

Rensselaer finished second, while North Newton took third.

Valparaiso’s Harley Dubsky took medalist honors with a 6-under par round of 66. That puts the senior at a combined 24-under par through six rounds this year.

“It’s hard to imagine that there is any better start to a season out there in high school girls golf,” Miller said. “It has been pretty exceptional play from her.”

Brooke Fullenkamp recorded a round of 78 to finish second for the Vikings, and teammate Lauren Caputo shot a personal-best round of 81 from the No. 4 spot.

“I don’t think we have seen her best round yet,” Miller said of Caputo. “There’s no limit to her game right now.”

Jennifer Gough rounded out the Valparaiso score with an 82.

“We’re going to go as far as our No. 2, 3 and 4 girls can carry us and how consistently they can play throughout the year,” Miller said.

Megan Salrin posted an 86 and Courtney Feagins had an 87 to lead the Bombers.

“Our No. 1 and 2 golfers are working on lowering their scores, so any time we can get under 400, we are right where we want to be,” Rensselaer coach Stephanie Davisson said.

Alisha Watts led the Spartans with a round of 80.

“Our top three girls all shot their best rounds of the year,” North Newton coach Barbara Peregrine said. “Everybody was right on.”

Portage’s Alicia Wood recorded a round of 89.
