Medina County girls golfers roll on

CANTON — Medina County girls golfers had another grand Saturday, this time with a win­ner in each division of the Mid­west Classic at par-72 Skyland Pines Golf Course.

In the Midwest Division, which features top teams from Ohio and Indiana, Highland edged seven-time Indiana state champion Martinsville 314-317 to remain unbeaten and add a new elite team to its hit list.

Junior Stephanie Horvath, who has played very well so far this fall, rolled in 13 pars and one birdie to finish fifth indi­vidually with a 3-over 75, while back-to-back Gazette MVPs Jessica Porvasnik and Lauren McKinzie each added 78s.

In the lower-class Ohio Divi­sion, Wadsworth’s Alice Ho took medalist honors with a 2-over 74 that led all county par­ticipants. Ho’s score was so impressive it was just one stroke off the Midwest Division winner. Sophomore Katy Ho added an 85 for the Grizzlies, who took third with a 362.
