Chillicothe Hornet sophomore Lexi Hargrave competed at
the State Golf Championship in New Bloomfield at the Meadow Lake Acres
Country Club. Lexi played sensational at sectionals in Kirksville, but
struggled both days of state competition. Lexi shot 121 and 132 placing
her near the bottom of the 92 player field. Lexi had a great run and has
two more years to improve on her state tournament results.
Notre Dame (Cape Girardeau) High School placed first in
the team competition with a score of 649, followed by John Burroughs with
689. Gallatin placed seventh with a team score of 815. Sarah Bell of Notre
Dame was the state champion with a two day total of 146. Madison DeRousse
of Ste. Genevieve was runner up, shooting 154. Samantha Cornelius of
