Mary Beth Tribble lead the Knights to their third straight sectional title on Saturday with a 79.

The Northview girls golf team put together a record-setting round during sectional play on Saturday, shooting a 325, to defend their title over Jasper's 343. Terre Haute North also will advance to regional play as well as Terre Haute South's Diana Price who tied with Linton's Rachael Pruett for medalist honors at two-over par 75. Price won a playoff to take medalist honors. South Knox senior Kara Waggoner also will advance with her 81.

Northview's round of 325 beat the old mark for high school girls golfers of 329.

Sophomore golfer, Mary Beth Tribble lead the Knights with her round of 79. She was tied with Pruett through the front nine with a 36, but a couple of bad holes cost her a couple of strokes on the back-nine, but not enough to derail the Knights return trip to regional play.

Mille Akers and senior Jenae Huffman each shot an 81 for the Knights and Madason Stevenson put together a round of 84 for Northview with Madison Kirchner carding an 86.

The Knights have been getting their best play at just the right time in winning their fourth sectional golf championship and third straight. The victory sends the Knights to the Jasper Regional along with the Wildcats and Patriots who were paced by Christine Dodson's 81.

Matching up at Jasper Municipal Golf Course on Saturday for regional play will be Evansville Memorial, who won their sectional with a 328, just ahead of Evansville North's 333 and Boonville's 351. Madolyn Parker was the medalist with an 82.

Advancing from the Seymour Sectional will be Providence who shot a 353 at the Seymour Elks for the title. Also moving on will be New Albany (367) and Floyd Central (369). Carley Keeler and Jessica Collins each shot a 75 for top score.

The top three teams will advance to state championship play with the top three individuals not advancing on a team will also move on.
