STERLING, Ill. (WIFR) - With regional tournaments being conducted within COVID regions, many area high schools had to make long trips to play this week. Most of the NIC-10 had to drive an hour or more to Sterling to golf at Emerald Hills on Wednesday. The Rockford Co-Op made the business trip worth it, beating conference rival Harlem by one stroke to win back-to-back regional plaques.

The Huskies' second-place finish means they move on to sectionals. It’s the first time in program history Harlem has advanced to sectionals as a team.

Brighton Young earned medalist honors. The senior was the only golfer to shoot below par, finishing with a 71 (-1).

Belvidere Co-Op’s Coe Walberg, Sycamore’s Brianna Chamoun, Sterling’s Maddie Pink, and Kaneland’s Katharine Marshall all advanced to sectionals as individuals.
