Trio of local golfers advance to regional


Campbell got into the regional field with room to spare with her 78. But if it hadn't been for three straight double bogeys, beginning at No. 10, she could have been in contention for a medalist berth. She balanced that out with three straight 3s (two of those birdies) beginning at No. 14.

Hallinger's path to the regional had a few more anxious moments. She ended the 18 holes in a tie with Hamilton Heights' No. 1 player Catie Gehlhousen. Both shot 89s. That meant the pair went to No.1 for a sudden death playoff.

On that hole, both were out of the fairway off the tee, but both managed to save par. Hallinger made a nice save out of the front bunker to leave herself a 6-foot putt.

"She is a good sand player so that shot didn't surprise me," said Lapel coach John Maryan.

On No. 2, the golfers again parted company, with Gehlhousen going into the left rough and Hallinger in the tall grass on the right side. It took both two more shots to reach the green. Both left par putts well short of the hole but sank bogey putts.

For the third playoff hole, the pair went back to the par-5 No. 18. It was a nightmare for Gehlhousen. Her ball never landed in the fairway as she visited both the right and left rough. It took her five shots to reach the green, and when she missed a bogey putt from about 10 feet, all Hallinger had to do was two-putt from about five feet. She nailed it for par to win the playoff.

"She had never even seen a playoff in golf," said Maryan of his foreign exchange student. "I thought the longer it went, the better chance she had because it gave her time to settle down."
