The Tigers put the finishing touches on their season with Kara Baker carding a 109 at the Lafayette Jeff Regional on Saturday. Battle Ground Golf Club was challenging and the regional field was one of the strongest in the state. While she did not advance to the state finals, Kara represented the golf team and Peru High School incredibly well. I am proud of the entire team and what they accomplished this fall and am already looking forward to what this group can do in the future.
