Polo's Alina Llanas to compete at state golf tournament this weekend in Decatur
Polo's Alina Llanas will compete this Friday and Saturday at the Illinois High School Association's state golf tournament.
Llanas, a senior, qualified for the Class 1A tournament after competed at the Genoa Sectional on Oct. 8.
With a round of 91 Llanas was in a tie for fourth place which earned her a spot at the state tournament.
The state tourney will be held Oct. 12-13 in Decatur at Red Tail Run Golf Course.
The course features fast greens with tricky reads and will be a tough challenge to overcome.
"Her biggest challenge is her putting," said coach Don Reece. "The good news is she has played this course at state before. I think she will do well if she can make some putts and keep her head in the game."
