Stillson Competes In High Profile USGA Event
NorthWood senior Cybil Stillson stepped outside traditional high school golf on Thursday to compete at the USGA Four-Ball event at Hillcrest Golf Club in Indianapolis.
Stillson joined Franklin High School’s Ava Magdalena to shoot a four-under 67 to finish third in the high profile event showcasing some of the top amateur female golfers in the midwest. Wisconsin’s Kimberly Dinh and James Madison’s Ashley Mantha shot a combined seven-under to lead the way, followed by a New Albany, Ohio, pair of Kary Hollenbaugh and Anna Ritter, which combined a five-under.
Stillson contributed six birdies in the round, which has the two players each play the hole, the better of the two scores is kept for 18 holes.
