October 1, 2012
In what were some tough conditions Monday at 3 Lakes Golf Course, the WPIAL held the Class AAA and AA Girls Golf Championship. Play was delayed by 90 minutes at the start due to heavy fog, the fairways were still damp from the weekend rain, but the greens dried out and were lighting fast.In the Class AAA championships, Janista Numpho-Frank of Hempfield claimed her first gold medal with a four-over par 76. The senior survived a challenge from sophomore Lauren Waller of Canon-McMillan down the stretch. Numpho-Frank shot even par over the front nine, but struggled slightly on the back side, shooting a 40. Waller fired two under 34 on the back nine, she finished two shots back at 78. Senior Lizzie Hammell was four shots off the lead at 80 and finished third.
