The Gibault and Valmeyer golf teams will be represented at next Monday’s Class 1A Carterville Sectional.

On Tuesday, Gibault golfers Sam Range and Ethan Kipping advanced to sectionals as individuals, along with Valmeyer golfer Alex Petri and will join seven other players who advanced to sectional as individuals.

Range and Kipping shot 80 and 89, respectively, at the Nashville Regional, held at Stonewolf Golf Course in Fairview Heights. Petri fired a 92.

Gibault finished fifth in the tourney, and missed qualifying as a team by six strokes.

Only the top three teams — Nashville (302), Marissa (365) and TriCo (367) advanced as teams.

Last year, Range, who is only a sophomore, advanced to state during his freshman year. This will be Kipping and Petri’s first appearance at sectionals.
