LAKE GENEVA, Wis. - Freshman golfer Griffin Oberneder from Beloit Memorial continued his terrific inaugural season of varsity golf by qualifying for WIAA sectional competition on Tuesday.

Competing in the Badger Regional, Oberneder advanced as the top individual qualifier after shooting a 78 at Hawk's View in Lake Geneva. He finished second overall, trailing only Mukwonago senior Nick Schroeder, who shot a 77.

Sectional competition for Oberneder will be next Tuesday at Edgewood Golf Course in Big Bend.

Mukwonago won the sectional with 331 strokes, followed by Badger, Janesville Parker and Beloit Memorial (398). The Purple Knights' second-best golfer, sophomore Alex Hoey, shot a 100 for 28th place.

Last week, Oberneder shot a 77 in the Big Eight Conference Championships held at Evansville Golf Club. He and four others tied for runnerup honors at 77 with the top score a 74 by Middleton's Kip Sullivan.
