UNIVERSITY PARK - Penn Cambria's Madison Krug shot an 82 at the Penn State White Course to vault herself into the top three at the District 6 Class AA girls golf championship and earn a trip to the Western Regional at Tom's Run next Wednesday.
Krug's Wednesday score of 91 coupled with her 82 Thursday gave her a total of 173, good enough for second-place behind district champion Kayla Orr of Bishop McCort. Orr shot rounds of 81 and 83 for a total of 164.
Forest Hills' Abbey Richards also advanced in Class AA as an individual with a total score of 177. The Lady Rangers also claimed the team title, besting Bishop McCort, 747-813. Forest Hills will compete for the team state championship in York on Oct. 23.
