FAIRMONT &045; There was no sweating this one out. After just missing its goal of qualifying for the state golf meet a year ago the United South Central girls&8217; golf team left no doubt this time around.

The Rebels fired a 380 to easily outdistance Fairmont by 19 strokes to punch their ticket to the state meet June 7 and 8 at the

Izatys Resort in Onamia.

The Rebels were paced by Tiffany Adams as the senior fired a 91. Fellow senior Cassie Wood was close behind with a 93 and Kelsey Treptow, a third senior, shot 95.

Sophomore Jessica Stensrud carded 101, senior Marie Halverson recorded 107 and freshman Kirsten Amberg rounded out the USC squad with 115.

The girls will be joined at the state meet by Tyler Pederson who helped lead the boys&8217; team to a third place finish. Pederson, a senior, will be making his fourth consecutive trip to the state meet after shooting the second best round of the day with a 76.

Pederson&8217;s brother, Alex, just missed the final state qualifying spot losing in a playoff.

Fairmont won the team race for the boys with 325, Blue Earth Area was second with 327 and USC took third with 336.
