The Columbus School for Girls golf team won the Division II district tournament Sept. 30 at Darby Creek to advance to its first state tournament since 2008.

The top team and the top individual not on that team qualified for state Oct. 11 and 12 at Ohio State’s Gray Course. The Unicorns (350) edged runner-up Lakewood (359), which had the medalist and individual qualifier in Ella Wigal (74).

“We knew going in, if we could average 90 or less per player that we could advance,” CSG coach Chris Ditello said. “That’s what we have been stressing since last year.

“We wanted them to go out, have fun, play golf and play your own game. Don’t worry what the other golfers are doing in your group, stick to the game plan and whatever happens, happens.”

Kate Kramer led CSG with a 77, followed by Emily Bruce (89), Caroline Kromalic (90), Vara Mehra (94) and Emma Kim (97).

Worthington Christian was sixth (402) and led by Rena So (80). Natalie Opava (100), Anna Opava (109), Zoe Holston (113) and Naysa Dunlap (130) also participated.

Also competing were Columbus Academy’s Grace Luo (86) and Ready’s Clarissa Bachelder (101).
