Biltz advances in competitive golf sectional

The Greensburg Country Club hosted a competitive girls golf sectional tournament Saturday, featuring 12 schools and 11 teams.

According to Greensburg head coach Terry Alverson, the 12 teams made Greensburg the largest sectional site in the State with Columbus North and Columbus East moved from the Bloomington sectional to Greensburg.

The Greensburg girls golf squad fell 16 strokes short of advancing to the regional, placing fourth. Columbus North won the team championship.

North Decatur placed eighth overall and South Decatur placed ninth.

Greensburg sophomore Britney Biltz was the lone golfer from Decatur County to qualify for the regional, which will take place Saturday at Westwood Country Club in New Castle. Biltz carded an 18-hole career low of 78 – good for second overall. She shot a birdie on holes 8 and 10. She qualified as a top-three golfer not on a team that advances.

“Britney had a great day and outscored some of the top players in the State,” said Alverson.

Columbus North’s Sydney Anderson was the meet medalist with a 72. Also advancing individually were Rushville’s Catie Liggett (86) and Abbey Gulde (98).

South Decatur freshman Lydia Wolterman, who shot a 99, missed the qualifying mark by one stroke.

Greensburg senior Tori Giddings (102) closed out her high school career finishing 22nd overall.

“It was an emotional day for Tori since this is her final high school golf match,” commented Alverson.

Greensburg players Payten Ewing (103) and Bri Stagge (106) finished 24th and 30th, respectively. Autumn Moster finished 42nd with a 116.

“This was Bri and Autumn’s first sectional and I thought they did very well taking that into consideration,” said Alverson. “Payten hit some great shots today, but just couldn’t get the ball to drop in the hole on the green.”

Although she is excited to advance, Biltz said afterward that her teammates have supported her on the quest to regional.
