The Madison Edgewood girls golf team has the lead in Division Two after the first round of the WIAA State Girls Golf Tournament at Cherokee Country Club.

Individually in Division 2, Osceola’s Casey Danielson shot 6 under par 66 to take a commanding 12-shot lead over Edgerton’s Brooke Ferrell after one round.

In Division One, Kettle Moraine has a two-shot lead over Homestead. Milton is fifth, Middleton seventh and Madison Memorial is 11th.

Waukesha’s Emily Joers has the low individual score with three-over par, while Beaver Dam’s Abby Chase and Verona’s Jessica Reinecke are tied for second at five-over..
