FREMONT — Huron senior Julia Hippely edged out Edison’s Jacque Butler on a playoff hole to take medalist honors, but it was the Chargers that won the Bay division of the Sandusky Bay Conference — held on Monday at the Fremont Country Club — with a score of 349.

Margaretta and Huron each shot a 400, but the Polar Bears took second with the fifth tiebreaker. Willard finished fourth with a 421, Oak Harbor fifth (426), Port Clinton sixth (444), and Sandusky St. Mary seventh (462).

In the Lake division, Shelby won with a score of 329. Perkins was a distant second (380), followed by Norwalk (388), Bellevue (395), Vermilion (401), Tiffin Columbian (432), and Clyde (447).

Jordan Pruitt backed Butler with an 80 for Edison, while Zoe Grant carded a 86. Abby Woodyard finished out the team scoring with a 104.

"Our emotions were running on high today, but I figured that because they are very competitive," Edison coach Lisa Kelble said. "I had some new girls out there. Overall, they did well for their abilities. My top leaders, I feel like did well. I am thrilled shooting a 349 going into sectionals. We have some work to do on our short games."

Edison is the defending Division II state team champions, while the Whippets were seven strokes behind in third at Ohio State University Gray course.

"I think my top three girls that were on that state team put some unneeded pressure on themselves," Kelble said. "If we can check those nerves, we are going to do a lot better. They put the pressure on themselves. I am just the encourager out there with them. They get down on themselves a little bit."

Madison Moneypenny led Willard with a 90 while Grace Conaway shot a 99. Elli White totalled a 104 and Sierra Lewis turned in a 128.

In the Lake division, Anna Little topped Norwalk with a 85 with Bethany Cring close behind with a 96. Hannah Dumbeck added a 103 while Noelle Jackson carded a 114.

Abby Bullion led Bellevue with a 92 while Jenna Staley added a 96. Also for the Lady Red, Lara Spurlock tallied a 101, and Riley Hager and Tristan Rupp each shot a 106.
