IHSAA News Release

September 15, 2010

The fall state tournament season begins this weekend with sectionals in the 38th Annual IHSAA Girls Golf State Tournament.

A total of 288 schools and 1,915 players, both IHSAA record numbers, are entered with rounds played at 28 courses around the state on Friday, Saturday and Monday. The top three teams and the top three individuals not on an advancing team will move on to regional play. A new rule this year calls for a playoff at the sectional and regional levels to break any ties for third place to determine the advancing golfer. In previous years, any player tied for third place automatically advanced.

Twin Lakes, which will play at Sandy Pines Golf Club in DeMotte, on Saturday, will be chasing a state record 13th consecutive sectional championship. The Indians share the current mark with Martinsville which also won 12 straight from 1990 through 2001.

Top-ranked Roncalli will be playing for its fifth straight sectional title at Southern Dunes Golf Course in Indianapolis on Friday.

Seven regional sites will serve as hosts on Saturday, Sept. 25, to determine which golfers will play in the Oct. 1-2 state finals at The Legends of Indiana Golf Course in Franklin.

Results from each site will be posted to www.ihsaa.org as they become available throughout the weekend.
