Verona wins sectional, Middleton takes second
Reinecke shoots 74 at Middleton sectional

WIAA girls golf sectionals were held Tuesday, with many local teams taking part of the Middleton sectional at Pleasant View. Verona won the event, tallying a team total of 320. Wildcats standout Jessica Reinecke was the medalist, shooting a 74. 

While Verona cruised to a state championship berth, three teams behind them needed extra holes to decide the second team to advance. Remarkably, Middleton, Madison Memorial, and Stoughton all tied at 334 after 18 holes. All 15 golfers then took part in a three-team playoff to determine who would advance to state. 

After one hole, Stoughton was eliminated when their five golfers tallied a 20 and Memorial and Middleton each totaled 19. 

On playoff hole number two, the Cardinals out shot the Spartans 22-24 to advance to state. 

Loren Skibba paced Middleton with a 77.
