In a sectional loaded with great teams, Middleton and Verona advance to the WIAA State Girls Golf tournament by posting the lowest team scores at the division one sectional meet at Odana Hills Monday.

Middleton's team score of 329 edged Verona (337) for the sectional championship. Stoughton was next at 342, Madison Memorial fourth at 354 and Oregon fifth with 363.

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.

Other individuals advancing to state include Klongland and Portage's Emily Grunder (81) and Madison Memorial's Claire Franken (84) who won a playoff with Beaver Dam's Abby Chase.

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.

Milton will have two individual players going to state next week - junior Maddie McCue (75) and sophomore CheyAnn Knudsen (80). McCue was the medalist for the sectional.
