Lexi Schulman's stellar freshman season of varsity golf continued Tuesday.
Her school-record 33 (2 under par) led Vernon Hills to a 192-197 win over visiting Evanston in a Central Suburban League match at Vernon Hills Golf Course.
Vernon Hills' previous school record for nine holes was a 34 by Maja Mirjanic in 2017.

Libertyville 173, Lake Zurich 178: At Veterans Memorial Golf Course, Payton DeBruler's 2-over 38 led the host Wildcats to the North Suburban Conference win.
It was the fourth straight match in which Libertyville (6-1, 3-1) improved its team total. Emma Fields added a 43, Lily McAuliffe had a 45, and Lexie Hill shot a 47.
"We love the improvement we see and the grit our kids showed while playing in really wet conditions," Wildcats coach Greg Pedersen said.
Lake Zurich was led by Bryana Hogan's 35.
