Daily Herald report

New Trier won its fifth straight championship at the Prospect Invite on Wednesday at the Mt. Prospect Golf Course.

The host Knights recovered from a slow start and took second place in the seven-team event.

"We got off to real rough start," said Knights coach Jim Hamann. "I can't explain why. But on the back nine we shot a 148 which is the best nine-hole score in school history (formerly 151).

"We played outstanding on the back nine. I'm real proud of how the girls fought back. New Trier played well and deserved to win."

The Trevians tied their own tournament record with a score of 305, finishing ahead of Prospect (311), Maine South 335 (which tied its school record), Stevenson 347, Prospect "B" 355, Conant 375 and Glenbrook South 379.

Emma Menich and Ally Scaccia led the Knights by carding 76s while teammates Kiley Walsh came in at 77 and Noreen Caporusso at 82.

Menich shot a team-high 90 on Tuesday in a dual meet and then bounced with a 76 Wednesday.

Scaccia parred the back nine to tie Menich.

"I'm really proud of Ally," Hamann said. "She worked so hard this summer and it's showing in her scores."

The Knights were only 4-over par on the back nine.

"We're obviously disappointed we didn't win but we didn't deserve to because we did not play well on the front nine," Hamann said.

Stevenson senior Stephanie Miller set a tourney record by shooting a 68 for first place. Menich and Scaccia tied for fourth while Walsh was sixth.

Jackie Halden and Carly Bryeans shot 88s to lead Conant.

Fremd d. Vernon Hills: The Vikings topped Vernon Hills at Palatine Hills 159-208.

Jennifer Kim fired a one-under 37 for medalist honors. The junior tied her personal best score.

Angie Kim (39), Dorothy Feng (40), Katie Hur (43) and Gwen Glasner (43) were the next top scorers for Fremd.

Buffalo Grove d. Deerfield: Senior Grace Kil fired a 1-under par 35 to lead the visiting Bison to a 163-183 triumph at the Deerfield Golf Club.

Other top scorers for BG were Courtney Meyer (39), Amber Guiao (40) and Jill Lynch (49).

Tuesday scores: Palatine (211) finished third in the Huntley Invitational behind Crystal Lake Central (179) and Huntley (192).

Maine West (212) was fourth and Geneva (213) took fifth.

Palatine was led by Sarah Mattes 49 (10th place), Jamie Lloyd 53, Veronica Metanova 54 and Emma Walsh 55.
