ASHVILLE — Tori Holmes has spent the golf season playing against male competitors and holding her own quite well.

On Monday, Holmes got to play against female golfers in the sectional tournament and proved she could compete regardless of the gender.

The top four teams qualified for the district tournament along with the four top individuals not on a qualifying team. Holmes was one of the individual qualifiers.

“Tori finally got on the women’s tees and showed just how good she can be,” said Coal Grove coach Danny Morgan.

“I had a feeling she was going to make it out this year. She’s been working hard all season and it showed today.”

Among the individuals to advance were Shania Irwin of Chillicothe Huntington Ross with an 81, Darby High of Valley and Jackie Cunningham of Belpre with an 83 each, and Holmes was next with an 86.

Holmes had four birdies in her round.

The Lady Hornets’ golfer will now play in the district tournament to be held Tuesday, Oct. 1, at Blacklick Woods Golf Course in Reynoldsburg.

Westfall won the team title with a 389 total. West Union had a 438 score, Wellston 443 and Circleville shot a 457.

South Point’s Madison Riley shot a 94, Barbara Collins a 108 and McKenzie Schweickart-Evans a 149. Ironton’s Hailee Haas carded a 131.
