Joliet girls golf earns first district title
The Joliet Township girls’ golf team recently walked away as SPC Conference champs, earning the school its first district title.
Coach James Grzetich said in a statement the title is a culmination of hard work and dedication that began far before the team even took a first peek at its schedule this season.
“At the end of last season, the girls really made a commitment to themselves and the team,” he said. “These girls all participated in off-season lessons, summer camp, fitness days and played competitive golf, always with the goal of capturing the SPC Team Title. The results were evident right away this fall, as we were able to go 7-0 in the SPC regular season.”
At the SPC Tournament at the Inwood Golf Course, Maddy Palmer led Joliet by firing a personal best 76. Morgan Anderson posted an 82, Anna Talarico a 91 and Kaelyn Cronin scored a 98, as Joliet edged out Oswego 347 to 348.
“It was truly a special day for our program and I could not be more proud of this whole group of girls,” Grzetich said. “It has been a great season to this point and now we will try to accomplish our next goal of advancing as a team to IHSA Sectionals.”
