HAMMOND — Stanley-Boyd sophomore Savanna Anderson is still an underclassman, but on the golf course she shows the savvy of an experienced veteran.
Anderson shot an 87 to tie for fifth place overall and advance to next week’s state golf meet on Tuesday afternoon at the WIAA Division 2 girls golf sectional hosted by Baldwin-Woodville at Pheasant Hills Golf Course.
Anderson tied with Hayward’s Rachel Radcliffe for fifth place, six strokes behind Hayward’s Gabby Tremblay for medalist honors. Anderson shot a 46 on the front nine before carding a 41 on the back nine, the best back-nine score among all golfers.
As a team the Orioles finished in third place with a 374, nine strokes behind Spooner for the second and final state-qualifying spot. Hayward won the team championship with a 343.
Katie Kiraly and Ella Koenig tied with 93s for Stanley-Boyd while Allison Raffetto shot a 101 and Julia Post finished with a 105.
Anderson’s sophomore season on the links will last a week longer as she turns her attention to the WIAA Division 2 state girls golf meet, hosted next Monday and Tuesday at University Ridge Golf Course near Madison.
