With Mother Nature interfering, the Prospect girls golf team had to settle for only one invitational Saturday.

The Knights had split their roster, sending girls to compete at the Homewood-Flossmoor and Waukegan Invites.

However, following two lightning delays, the Waukegan Invite was canceled. The golfers had played about 14 holes after the 1 p.m. shotgun start.

However, thanks to its 8 a.m. shotgun start in the South suburbs, the Homewood-Flossmoor Invite was completed.

Prospect (335) took second place behind Waubonsie Valley (328) at Green Garden Country Club in Frankfort.

The Knights were led by senior Ally Scaccia's 75, which placed her third behind invite champion Bing Singhsumalee, a junior for Waubonsie Valley who shot a par 72.

Prospect senior Bridget Brassil shot a 79, which was good for fourth place. The Knights' other two scores were carded by senior Emma Menich (84) and senior Frankie Corrado (97).

"This weekend was more about more about getting a lot of girls opportunities to play," said Prospect coach Jim Hamann, whose team has already won two invites this season. "It was too bad with lightning that we couldn't post scores at Waukegan, but the girls did play a lot of holes."

•In boys action at the Homewood-Flossmoor Invite, coach Tom Martindale's Prospect Knights shot a 321 and placed fourth in the 12-team field. The Knights were led by Grant Gavin (78), who tied for a 10th-place medal.

Prospect's boys and girls teams combined for a score of 567, finishing first out of the 12 schools in the co-ed results.
