St. Al, Whittington win again

Published 10:32 am Thursday, April 9, 2015

Playoffs were all the rage Wednesday at the Country Club of Jackson — and Warren County’s golfers came out on the right side of all of them.

St. Aloysius won the team championship of the Jackson Academy-Jackson Prep Invitational by beating host Jackson Prep in a playoff, and Warren Central’s Karley Whittington was the medalist after beating Prep’s Blair Stockett in another playoff.

Stockett helped Prep tie with St. Al by shooting a 76. She also tied with Whittington, but finished on the short end of both one-hole playoffs.

Jackson Prep’s other golfer was Sara Hederman, who shot a 93.

Other teams in the tournament were Copiah Academy, Madison Central, Columbia, Northwest Rankin and Presbyterian Christian.
