Local golfers advance to IHSAA state finals


Roncalli senior Abbey Gleixner fired a 74 at the Smock Golf Course regional Saturday to qualify for the state finals for the fourth straight year.

Whiteland senior Alexa West carded an 81 and survived a one-hole regional playoff to earn a spot in the IHSAA girls golf state finals this weekend at The Legends Golf Club in Indiana.

Whiteland Community High School’s Alexa West and Roncalli’s Abbey Gleixner aren’t finished yet.

West and Gleixner, both seniors, have earned individual berths in Friday’s and Saturday’s IHSAA Girls Golf State Finals set for Friday at The Legends Golf Club in Franklin.

Playing at the New Castle Regional on Saturday, West carded an 81, a score she didn’t believe would be good enough to qualify for state.
