Next fall Nadaline will be playing for Ball State.
Tilton's closing birdie didn't have career-ending sweetness, but it did have an impact on the PH golfer. She posted a double bogey on No. 4 and then a string of five straight bogeys beginning at No. 8.
"That double was the only one she had in two rounds," said Arabians coach Tom Harvey. "But I wasn't worried about it because she never quits."
Her approach at No. 18 was perfectly placed. It was just to the right of the pin and uphill to the cup. The putt was right into the heart of the hole.
"That was big because I had waited all day for it," said Tilton of her only bird of the round. "I putted way better today. The course was very wet and playing a lot longer today. This course doesn't take rain well."
"She's just a junior so hopefully she will be back her again next year," said Harvey. If so there are very few ways better to end a prep career than with a birdie at No. 18 in a third straight state final appearance.
