St. Charles North senior Jordyn McFarlane has been practicing a bit extra lately on her putting game.

That extra practice paid off for McFarlane Monday when she used just 17 putts to shoot a 2-over par 38 and win the individual championship of the Elgin Country Club Invitational.

McFarlane's round also contributed to the North Stars shooting a 168 to run away with the team trophy. Geneva (193) and Jacobs (201) were a distant second and third, respectively.

"It was a great day," said McFarlane, who birdied two holes on her way to the day's best round. "I started on No. 4 with a bogey but then my putting really came around. I've been in the 20s so I've been putting in a lot of extra time working on my alignment and aim. I hit the ball pretty solid today and set myself up for birdie chances. I just played my game."

As did the rest of the North Stars. Jessica Grill took second place on a score card tiebreaker with Geneva's Megan Kelly after they each shot 39. Arianna Furrie, usually SCN's No. 1 player, was fourth overall with a 41 and Maddy Bolz shot 50.

"This was an excellent day for us and just what we've been waiting for," said North Stars coach Chris Patrick. "Arianna has been so consistent but she had a bit of a down day so it was nice to see (McFarlane and Grill) step up. Jordyn has been fighting a (back) injury and she's had a hard time getting loose. She told me it was hurting today but she got the ball around the course."

Geneva's second-place finish was led by Kelly, a senior.

"It was really good," she said. "I bogeyd my first hole and just tried to recover. It was a really good round for me."

Nicole Hassels and Elise Anderson each shot 51 for the Vikings, who also counted a 52 from Mary Clare Novak.

Jacobs' third-place finish was led by a 48 from Kaitlynn Woloszyk. Carly Andersen and Sydney Goll each had 49 for the Golden Eagles and Tori Tamburrino shot 55.

Dundee-Crown finished fourth with a 205. Lauren Wendt led the Chargers with a 47. The Elgin/Larkin co-op nosed out Burlington Central 213-214 for fifth place. Alison Smith led the Royals with a 41, which was good for fifth individually, while Josie Kurosy led the Rockets with a 42.

The South Elgin/Bartlett/Streamwood co-op shot 224, led by a 52 from Katie Kirkby, and St. Edward had a 236, led by a 52 from Ryann Scully.

Mikaila Conforti had Westminster Christian's best score with a 51 and Miranda Kuzyk shot a 52 competing for Elgin Academy.
