Local individuals to advance to state from that sectional were Rockford Lutheran's Natalie Hooper and Caitlin Schoepfer, and Dixon's Olivia Pultorak.
Rockford Lutheran's Matt Tamar is also going to state as an individual out of the Byron sectional.
The 2A boys golf sectional at Freeport will send Genoa-Kingston's Nick Adamczyk, Sycamore's Trent Scott, and Sterling's Nick Ceruzzi to state. The 3A boys sectional featured two NIC-10 teams and various conference individual competitors, but none advanced to state.
