Waubonsie Valley’s Ayana Patel converts on the 20-foot putt to secure our Play of the Week! Presented by Trunnell Insurance.
On this Play of the Week, we go to the Oswego East Regional where Waubonsie’s Ayana Patel makes a difficult putt look routine. On the last hole of the day, she’s 20 feet away from the pin. That doesn’t faze her because she buries it. Beautiful shot by Patel and her reaction; just business. One more look at it. Puts just enough on it, a nice roll, and a Play of the Week for the junior.
The Oswego/Oswego East Co-Op hosting the 2A girls golf regional at Fox Bend golf course in Oswego. Neuqua Valley won this regional a year ago. They along with Metea Valley, Waubonsie Valley and Naperville Central are all in the field hoping to advance to next week’s sectional.
On the 18th hole, Neuqua Valley senior Chelsea Santos gets this putt to fall en route to a score of 91.
Madison Wigfield from Metea Valley gets this lengthy bogey putt to go, a good shot to end her day.
Neuqua Valley sophomore Maddy Coffey rolls this putt into the cup. The Wildcat with an 89, just outside of the top ten overall.
Another Wildcat sophomore Sophie Lagman sinks this putt to end her round. An impressive 86 is second best on the team as Neuqua Valley clinches a first place team finish for a third consecutive season.
One of the better putts we’ll see in this one comes from Ayana Patel from Waubonsie Valley. She buries this 20 footer, but misses out on a sectional spot as the Warriors finish in 5th as a team.
Mustang Pranvi Kakkar with a nice putt here. She cracks the top ten overall with an 85. That clinches a second place finish for Metea Valley. Two years removed from a last place regional finish. The team advances to sectionals for just the second time ever.
Naperville Central is led by senior Haley Hayes. She just misses out on a par putt here. But she does advance to sectionals for the first time in her career after a round of 86.
Another Waubonsie Valley golfer heading to sectionals is junior Lily Riley. A great putt here on 18 helps the Warrior to a strong round of 84.
