Homer Junior High golfer wins state title
Homer Junior High School has its first-ever State Champion in golf!
Lizzie Anderson, an eighth-grader, shot a 76 at the Illinois Elementary School Association (IESA) state golf tournament this past weekend, winning the state title!
“We are so proud of Lizzie,” said Homer Junior High School Principal Troy Mitchell. “She is an outstanding student athlete who has brought much excitement and honor to Homer Junior High.”
Seventy-three girls competed in the IESA state tournament Sept. 16 in Peoria. Among them were last year’s State Champion, Dani Grace Schrock of Pontiac. She finished tied for eighth this year with an 81.
Competing in the boys division this year were Homer Junior High’s Brody McCarthy and Joseph Sluzas.
Brody earned a medal in the tournament at 8th place with a score of 78. Joseph finished in 13th place with a score of 80.
Both boys are headed to the PGA Junior League Golf National Championship in Arizona on Nov. 15-19. They are part of the Coghill All Star team and play in the PGA Junior League. The Junior League Championship will be televised on the Golf Channel.
