Led by Katie Horn’s 45, Sturgis captured the Wolverine Conference golf jamboree at Indian Lake Hills Wednesday.
The win pulled the Trojans even with Plainwell for first place in the conference after six jamborees. Sturgis and Plainwell are tied with 43 points each.
Sturgis finished with a team score of 192, while Allegan was second with a 205 and Otsego third with a 211. Dowagiac finished seventh with a 248.
Erin Taylor of Three Rivers was medalist with a 42.
Kelsey Smith led Dowagiac with a 54. Alyssa Allen finished with a 55, which included a birdie.
“We keep improving as 248 is our best score of the year,” Dowagiac coach Bob Turner said. “Last night was the third match in a row in which we improved our score from the previous. We are now tied with Vicksburg for seventh in the league, so we have something to work on the next couple matches.
“It would be nice to move up in the standings. Having the home match was nice, but the girls were a little nervous knowing that we should shoot well at home and there were also people watching that they know. Alyssa had her best round of the year and had a birdie on the tough par 3 No. 5 over the pond.”
