Middleton's Loren Skibba and Stoughton's Becky Klongland had the low individual scores with 75. Skibba won the playoff on the second hole for medalist honors.

At the division one Janesville sectional at Riverside Golf Course, Janesville Parker won the sectional team title in a playoff with Mukwonago. Both teams shot 333, but Parker won the playoff 16-19 to claim the sectional championship.

Milton (334) finished just one shot out of a spot in the playoff and a possible trip to state.
