AVON LAKE — Avon junior Bua Wattanauanichakorn dominated play at the Northeast Division I sectional tournament at Sweetbriar Golf Course, shooting 76 to finish five strokes clear of the field.

The Eagles claimed the team title as well while Avon Lake joined them in advancing to the Division I district tournament to be held Tuesday at Ellsworth Meadows in Hudson.

Avon shot a 344 as a team to claim the sectional crown. Olmsted Falls finished second at 352, Magnificat third at 359 and Avon Lake fourth at 373.

The top four teams advance to Ellsworth Meadows with the top four individuals not on qualifying teams.

Molly DuPerow (Strongsville), Aya Vicens (Amherst), Cleo Meldrum (Medina) and Madison Perdue (Brunswick) were the individual qualifiers.

Senior Amanda Holtzman carded an 88, sophomore Ainsley Gilchrist a 90 and junior Kavita Nanda a 101 for Avon.

“I’m really excited for this team,” Eagles coach Kaitlin Neumann said. “Amanda shot her low score and Ainsley played really well today. We improved from the conference tournament, which was also here last week, and I’m glad to see we’re moving in that direction.”
