After a strong runner-up finish in Conant's Early Bird Invite on Monday, Fremd's girls golf team came back and won the Barrington Invite on Tuesday at the Bonnie-Dundee Golf Course in Carpentersville.

Winning their first tourney in coach Christine Vlaming's five seasons, the Vikings came in with a score of 318, led by junior Jennifer Kim (76), senior Angie Kim (77), junior Dorothy Feng (82) and freshman Katie Hur (83).

It was Jennifer Kim's best round of her career.

Highland Park (328) was second followed by Rockford Boylan (333), St. Charles East (343) and host Barrington (344) in the 14-team invite.

St. Charles East senior Paige Jordan earned medalist honors with a 71 while Barrington junior Heather Ciskowski was fourth with a 73.

Fremd's Jennifer Kim placed sixth and teammate Angie Kim tied for seventh.

"Fremd is a talented team and really a nice bunch of girls," said Barrington coach Jodi Schoeck. "I'm thrilled for Christine (Vlaming). She works really hard and it's going to be a nice road for her team this year, for sure."

The Vikings' 318 score was one of their best since Vlaming took over the program.

"It's great," she said. "We're off to a good start here so hopefully we'll keep things rolling.

"I'm really excited for the girls. They've worked real hard and it's a step in the right direction. Jodi (Schoeck) puts on a great tournament and we're thankful to be a part of it."
