HUNTLEY – Burlington Central girls golfer Jenna Kurosky carded a 1-under par 35 at Tuesday's Huntley Invitational at Pinecrest Golf Club, placing second individually as the Rockets finished second among nine teams.

Central (191 points) finished behind the champion Crystal Lake Central co-op (148), which also boasted medalist Lexi Harkins, a North Carolina recruit who shot 34.

Kurosky embraced the challenge of playing in the same field as Harkins, who finished in the top four at the Class AA state meet in each of her first two seasons before taking last season off to play in national tournaments.

"Jenna did very well. She was excited, really ecstatic, about being under par," Central coach Deb Twenhafel said. "To be one stroke behind that quality of player, she was really, really thrilled."

Kurosky's younger sister, Josie, shot 46 on Twenhafel's birthday.

Gabby Devlin (51) and Hannah Lindenberg (58) paced sixth-place Geneva (split squad), which had a team score of 223. Aurora Central Catholic (225) finished seventh behind Amber Weaver's 50.

Plainfield North Invite: At Whitetail Ridge in Yorkville, Geneva shot 358 to place second and win a scorecard tiebreaker with Hinsdale South. Downers Grove North won with a 356, while Rosary took fourth among 13 teams with a 373.

Victoria Phipps and Morgan Martinez both shot 85 for the Royals. Megan Rush led Geneva with an 88.


Geneva quadrangular: At Mill Creek, Geneva scored 300 to edge Kaneland (303) in a quadrangular that also included Glenbard South (309) and South Elgin (324).

Graham Lillibridge (73) paced the Vikings, while Nate Desens and Alex Schreiber (74 each) and Mac Feehan (79) were the Vikings' other scorers.

Brody Kuhar shot a 72, Matt Yonkovich added a 75, Jesse Denton shot 76 and Stephen Cannell had an 80 for the Knights.

Glenbard North Tournament: At Glendale Lakes in Glendale Heights, Burlington Central and Huntley both shot 309, but Huntley won on the strength of a better fifth score.

BC's Matt Weber – an Indiana recruit – shot a 4-under 67 to take medalist honors. Playing Monday at the Golf Club of Illinois in Algonquin, Weber carded a 1-under 70 to win the Crystal Lake South Invitational.
