In postseason golf action this past week, the Geneseo girls' golf team moved on to sectional competition as a team, and had one golfer head to the state finals.
Geneseo freshman Monica Lieving has punched a ticket to the state finals in her first season of high-school golf.
Lieving finished 12th overall as she carded a 95 (48, 47).
"Monica was quite happy," said head coach Julie Frels. "All along she has been playing well and has worked hard to get to where she is at. She deserves it."
Ashley Farrell shot a 101 (51, 50) for the day, followed by Bailey Ries with a 117 (63, 54). Emily VandeWiele recorded a 122 (63, 59), while Abby Wilebski shot a 124 (58, 66) and Abby Frank a 137 (68, 69).
The team combined for a 435 to take fifth place.
"We were happy we made it to sectionals, but were hoping to do better," said Frels. "It was a tough day to play golf."
The Lady Leafs notched a third-place finish and a spot in the IHSA Sectional as they advanced out of the Oct. 3 Rock Falls Regional as a team. The girls finished with a team score of 407.
Leading the Geneseo contingent of golfers were Lieving shooting a 92 and VandeWiele carding a 99.
Farrell recorded a 105 for the course, while Wilebski shot a 111. Ries chipped in a 118 and Frank finished the day with a 122.
Lieving will compete at the IHSA State Finals Oct. 12 and 13 at Red Tail Run Golf Course in Decatur.
"I hope to see Monica get some experience and have fun," said Frels. "She has no pressure, and we want her to do the best she can and soak it all in."
