Verona, Edgewood teams, Skibba lead girls golf tournament after Day 1

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- At times it was pouring down rain at University Ridge Golf Course for Day 1 of the WIAA Girls Golf Tournament, but the golfers played on. The weather didn't seem to bother Middleton's Loren Skibba (-3), who was the only golfer in either Division 1 or 2 to shoot under par.

"I'm just happy overall. I was pretty confident with my playing today. So, I think that helped," Skibba said.

Skibba has a five stroke lead over two-time defending champion Jessica Reinecke of Verona (+2), and Homestead's Anika Hitt (+2).

"There's so many girls out there who can go low and shoot good scores. So, you never know what's going to happen. My goal is just to shoot the best I can for myself and whatever happens, happens," Reinecke said.

Reinecke's Verona team (+27) has a four-shot lead in the team competition. Arrowhead (+31) is in second.

In Division 2, Madison Edgewood's Tess Hackworthy (+2) holds the top spot, two strokes ahead of Racine St. Catherine's Sarah Busey (+4).

 Not far behind is Hackworthy's teammate Caroline Lake (+7).

Madison Edgewood (+40) leads the team competition, fifteen strokes ahead of Fox Valley Lutheran (+55). Madison Edgewood is the three-time defending champions.

The tournament will conclude Tuesday.
