IVC senior Hunter Mettille and freshman Elaine Grant advanced to the state finals after finishing fourth and sixth, respectively, at their sectionals Monday, Oct. 8.

Birdieing on his last hole, Mettille shot a 75 on the Lincoln Elks Club Golf Course. His 4-over performance was good for a four-way tie for fourth place.

This year’s state appearance will be Mettille’s third consecutive trip to the state finals.

For the first time at the varsity level, Grant heads to the state finals after shooting an 82 on the Pontiac Elks Club Golf Course.

She was 8-over through her first five holes, but played the final 13 at just 2-over par. Grant finished sixth overall.
