Sophomore sensation Simone Mikaelian shot a tourney-best 83 and led Libertyville to the Waukegan Regional championship on Wednesday at Bonnie Brook Golf Course in Waukegan.

The Wildcats (344), Carmel (364) and Grayslake North (393) were the three teams that qualified for next Monday’s sectional at Bittersweet in Gurnee.

Besides the team qualifiers, the 10 best scorers not on a qualifying team also advanced to the sectional and will compete for the individual title.

That list included Wauconda’s Annette Yandall, Mundelein’s Jenny Dimitriou and Holly Petlak, Warren’s Izzy Cordova and Erica Price and Grant’s Brianna Burgeson.

Meanwhile, over at Deerpath Golf Course in Lake Forest, Barrington (359), Deerfield (360) and Highland Park (365) finished 1-2-3 in the team scoring and qualified to play at Bittersweet in the sectional.

Emily Young of Lake Forest was medalist with a 76 and was one of seven area players to qualify for the sectional as individuals.

The others were Stephanie Namkoong and Alexia Fiedman of Stevenson, Faith Jung and Kari Lee of Vernon Hills, Aine Mattera of Lake Zurich, and Lena Benjakul of Lake Forest.
