MARTINSVILLE -- On a soggy Fox Cliffs Golf Course on Saturday morning, the Martinsville Regional took place in wet and muddy conditions.

Local teams didn't are too well as their seasons came to a close as Terre Haute North had the best team finish with an eighth-place finish followed by Terre Haute South's 11th-place and Northview in 12th overall.

The Martinsville Regional is one of the toughest in the state as seven of the top-25 teams in the state took part and just three teams were going to qualify for the IHSAA State Finals beginning on Friday at The Legends Course in Franklin.

With a wet course, Fox Cliffs played even longer than it does usually and that didn't help the cause for a number of teams.

Martinsville used the home course familiarity to win the regional with a score of 330 followed closely by Columbus North with a 333 and Center Grove's 355. Just nine strokes separated fourth-place Bloomington South (358) and the eighth-place Patriots with 367.

The Knights were led by a 93 from Mandy Thomlinson followed by Olivia Oehler's 100, Hayley Miller's 104, Allison Trout's 122 and Shelby French's 126.

Thomlinson went out in 47 on the front nine and followed that with a 46 on the back nine. Miller shot well on the back nine with a 48.

Terre Haute North's Rachel Welker advanced as an individual with a round of 81, tying Bloomington South's Beth Anne Weiler for third-place overall.

Erin Sutton of Columbus North was the medalist with a score of 76.

State Finals play begins on Friday with the first round beginning at 8:30 a.m.
