Salukis' Tewell ties for medalist at regional
MATTOON - Morgan Tewell made it three-for-three Wednesday.

A junior at Red Hill High School, Tewell was the co-medalist in the Illinois High School Association regional golf tournament, hosted by Cumberland High School at Meadowview Golf Course.

As a result, Tewell will play in the sectional meet Monday at Effingham Country Club. The sectional appearance will be the third for Tewell in as many years.

Tewell and Mount Carmel sophomore Emma Kieffer both shot 11-over-par rounds of 83. Kieffer was officially named the tournament medalist after beating Tewell on the first playoff hole.

Mount Carmel (380), Pana (399) and Effingham (401) held down the top three spots in the team competition and will play in the sectional. Effingham St. Anthony (404), Teutopolis (460) and Oblong (573) completed the eight-team regional field.

Tewell was the only RHHS player entered in the tournament.

The top 10 players not on the advancing teams also earned sectional spots, and Tewell was easily the top qualifier.

Tewell's score of 83 was good enough to move on by 30 spots, as Teutopolis junior Ellie Ruholl was the final qualifier with a 41-over-par 113.

Tewell and Kieffer were easily the top players in the field. Their 11-over-par scores of 83 were five shots better than Effingham's Morgan Wilson and Pana's Hannah Miller, both of whom shot 88.

Other Little Illini Conference players who advanced were Flora senior Ginger Williams (93) and Marshall junior Leighanne Hildebrand (111).

Other sectionals will also take place in Gibson City and Monmouth. The sectional in Freeport is scheduled for Saturday.

Those who advance from the sectional will play in the state finals at Red Tail Run Golf Course in Decatur, Oct. 18 and 19.
