Mattoon’s Wolf tied for sixth on day one

DECATUR—Kira Wolf shot a three-over-par 75 Friday and tied for sixth place on the first day of the Class 2A state golf tournament. Wolf, a junior at Mattoon, tees off at 10:12 a.m. Saturday for the final round.

Paige Chappell scored an 87 on her first day of the Class 1A tournament, good for a tie for 41st place. Chappell is a Charleston senior.

Class 2A boys round on Friday canceled

NORMAL — Because of Mother Nature, the Charleston boys golf team will only have one day to defend its Class 2A state title. The Trojans were a stroke behind St. Viator, and both teams almost played 12 holes when the IHSA canceled Friday's round because of the weather.

Temperatures were in the high 30s at Weibring Golf Club and snow started to fall. The IHSA determined the conditions wouldn't improve, and the putting greens had enough snow on them to make them hard to play on. So the IHSA canceled Friday's scores and made Saturday a one-day state tournament with all of those scores counting.

Tee times from Friday carry over to Saturday for all teams and players. Charleston looks to defend its state title, and Mattoon's Tanner Romine will get a second chance as he was in 65th place when play was called.
