FARMER CITY, Ill. -- For those who endured the rainy conditions at the Heart of Illinois Conference Tournament on Tuesday, the following sentences should seem familiar.

LeRoy's Molly Marcum medaled. Amber Tsevelekos finished fourth.

Marcum earned the title of medalist in the Blue Ridge Quad Meet at Woodlawn Country Club with a score of 39. Tsevelekos shot a 46.

However, Marcum's score was not enough to push LeRoy's team score under Prairie Central. Blue Ridge did not have a team score because the Lady Knights did not have enough entrants.
