Girls golf: Stevenson, Lake Zurich's Pouyat set school records
Stevenson's girls golf team set the school record with a 297 in winning the Lake County invite earlier this week, and the Patriots took third at the High School Prep Tour Showcase at Hickory Point in Decatur (303).
Allie Santos won Lake County (even-par 72), while freshman Allyson Duan is averaging 35 on 9 and 75 on 18 with a few under-par rounds.
Lake Zurich update:
Kiana Pouyat tied for third with a 73 at Barrington, which was a school record for 18 holes, plus the Bears posted their lowest score in the last 20 years there. Pouyat shot a medalist 37 at Countryside and was sixth with an 80 at Lake County.
Kellie Shanahan took 11th at the Lake County invite at Bittersweet with an 85, plus had a pair of 42s in duals against Lakes and Wauconda. She eagled the sixth on Countryside's Prairie course.
Grayslake North update:
In its first year of flying solo after eight years as a co-op with Grayslake Central, North has been led by sophomore Makayla Campbell, who finished in the top half of the Lake County invite at Brae Loch.
Lakes is off to a 2-0 start thanks in large part to the early-season strong play of junior McKenna Sosnowski, senior Kailey Gara and freshman Maia Becker.
Cara Pederson, Abbi Themanson and freshman Riley Daniele have led the way for the Bulldogs thus far. Pederson shot a team-best 91 at the Lake County invite.
Grayslake Central update:
Senior Alex McGowan has been consistent for the Rams. She was the team's low score at Lake County and has the lowest 9-hole average.
The Blue Devils shot 358 at the Libertyville invite. Juniors Mia Cosnotti and Gracie Haupt have led the way thus far.
The Corsairs were third at Libertyville and fourth at Lake County. Kate Roberts and Kaylie McKenna shot 18-hole personal bests at Libertyville.
Barrington wasted little time breaking the under-300 barrier. The Fillies shot a 291 to win their own Barrington invitational to open the season. Sophomore Bridget Butler shot 71 and won the tournament. Senior Sophia Sulkar (72), sophomore Sydney Terada (73) junior Simaran Singh (75) and sophomore Leah Gaidos (75) also were key contributors. "I have been impressed with all the hard work my players have been putting in," coach Tim Martin said. "They have been maximizing their practice time."
