10/2/2018, 6 a.m.
The team made district history as the first JT Girls Golf team to win the SPC Conference.
The Joliet Township High School Girls Golf Team were the 2018 SPC Conference Champions, the first time in district history, at the Inwood Golf Course on September 27, 2018. The team is coached by Joliet Township High School educators James Grzetich, Jonathan Murray, Heather Suca and Natalie O'Connell.
Coach Grzetich said, "At the end of last season, the girls really made a commitment to themselves and the team. These girls all participated in off-season lessons, summer camp, fitness days and played competitive golf, always with the goal of capturing the SPC Team Title. The results were evident right away this fall, as we
were able to go 7-0 in the SPC regular season."
At the SPC Tournament, Maddy Palmer led the team with a score of 76, setting a high school personal best for herself. Morgan Anderson followed that up with an 82. Anna Talarico came in with a personal best, 91. Kaelyn Cronin scored a 98, edging out Oswego 347 to 348 to win the tournament and claim the SPC Title.
Grzetich said, "It was truly a special day for our program and I could not be more proud of this whole group of girls. It has been a great season to this point and now we will try to accomplish our next goal of advancing as a team to IHSA Sectionals."
