Carmel Catholic's girls golf team shot its lowest round of the season and might have broken a school record, coach Jill Franz said.
The Corsairs' 167 at the par-35 The Meadows Golf Course in Blue Island allowed them to capture wins over Nazareth Academy (183) and Marist (183). Carmel improved its record to 5-4 in the East Suburban Catholic Conference and 9-7 for the season.

Nazareth defeated Marist on a fifth-score tiebreaker.
Carmel senior Taylor Smith earned medalist honors with a 40. Freshman Kayla Ryan and senior Isabella Bagshaw each shot a 41 for the Corsairs, and senior Melanie Noonan carded a 45.
"The girls played outstanding today and finished the last regular-season conference match on positive note with a win that was much-needed," Franz said. "Not only did the girls play outstanding, but they shot these scores in 40-50 mph steady winds, which is huge. They are starting to peak at the right time heading into the conference tournament and regionals, and it's exactly what a coach wants its players to do."
