Lansing golfers headed to state
Jackson places second, Cameron sixth as LHS sends full squad to state
Topeka Strong rounds from sophomore Maria Jackson and senior Andrew Cameron were just enough to lift the Lansing High golf team into the Class 5A state tournament.
Playing Monday in the regional tournament at Lake Shawnee Golf Course in Topeka, Jackson shot a season-best round of 75 and placed second individually after winning a three-player playoff. Cameron shot an 80 and placed sixth. Their scores were enough nudge LHS into third place in the team standings. The top three teams qualify for state.
Shawnee Heights won the team title with a 311. Topeka Seaman was second with 322. Lansing's 332 was four strokes better than fourth-place Mill Valley.
Joining Jackson and Cameron with low rounds for Lansing were junior Stefan Froelich (88) and junior Ted Haugland (89). Seniors Max Kozak and Javen Kelly rounded out the squad with a pair of 91s.
