Region golf: Fivay girls going to state along with Etcheberry, Dalton

Mallory Etcheberry made the most of her final shot at a trip to state.

The Academy at the Lakes senior fired 3-over 75 on a windy Monday to win the Class A, Region 3 title at Black Bear Golf Club in Eustis.

"She put in a lot of hard work," Wildcats coach Kevin Crowley said, "and it's paid off for her."

Etcheberry overcame a double bogey on the sixth hole with a consistent, par-laden round to advance to her first state tournament.

She'll have plenty of company from the North Suncoast at next week's two-day event in Howey-in-the-Hills.

Bishop McLaughlin freshman Brooke Dalton became the school's first state qualifier by finishing second at 84 after saving par on the last few holes.

"Brooke hung in there," Hurricanes coach Jim Globokar said. "She knew she was close to qualifying and finished strong."

Fivay followed its second consecutive district championship by placing second with a score of 426 — 43 shots behind winner Mount Dora Bible — to reach its first state tournament. Taylor Rhodes led the Falcons with 96, followed by Amber Mariano (102), Ashlyn Arrington (106) and Lauren Mariano (117).

Wesley Chapel's Hana Lee shot 88, the third-lowest round of the day, to just miss qualifying for state.

Nature Coast finished third as a team (404). Kae Elliott was the tournament's No. 4 finisher with 91 to lead the Sharks.

Other notable performers: Hernando's Eugenia Urso (97), Gulf's Sarah Usewick (104), Pasco's Kaylee Britton (105) and Nature Coast's Kaitlyn Glynn (105).

2A-4: Mustangs ousted

CLEARWATER — Mitchell was the top team from Pasco County in Monday's Class 2A, Region 4 tournament at Countryside Country Club with 381, 57 strokes behind winner Steinbrenner. Ashley Richardson shot a team-best 87 for the Mustangs. Steinbrenner was led by individual medalist Kayla Poff at 74. Teammates Kelsey Holbert (79) Brooke Deal (85) and Claire Decker (86) were among the top 10. Palm Harbor University was runnerup at 367.
