Competing in her first tournament of the fall, senior Ann Peterson fired a 93 to lead Marquette to an 8th place finish on a warm afternoon at White Hawk CC in Crown Point.
The Blazers finished ahead of Portage and Andrean thanks to a team score of 458.
Junior Sandra Paholski shot a 111 in support of Peterson. Junior Mary Kate Bobillo and senior Sophia Wrobleski turned in rounds of 126 and 128, respectively, as Marquette posted a 36-stroke improvement over its 2018 sectional team score.
The Blazers will have some time to prepare before returning to competition. Marquette will open up match play on August 20th at Calumet.
