None of the four local golfers that took to the course for Sectional play were able to extend their seasons Monday.
Crawford County was represented by four individuals (three girls, one boy) at tournaments in Centralia and Effingham, but none of them were able to score well enough to advance to this weekend's state meets.
At the IHSA Class 1A Effingham St. Anthony Boys Sectional, Hutsonville's Trent Matthews improved his score from the Regional, but still came up short of earning a qualifying spot.
Matthews finished his Sectional round at Effingham Country Club with an 88 to finish tied for 42nd overall in the 111-player field. His score was six shots off the final qualifying score of 82 by Vienna's Josh McGill and Greenville's Sam Knebel.
