Vincent - Hannah Jankauskas made golf history at Warren High.

The Warrior senior became the first girl at the Washington County-based school to qualify for the state tournament when she carded a career- and school-best 82 Monday at the par 70 EagleSticks Golf Course in the OHSAA Division I East/Southeast District Tournament.

Jankauskas, an Otterbein University recruit, needed to win a sudden death playoff hole on the first hole against Miami Trace sophomore Alyssa Butler to advance to Columbus.

“She got up and down to make a par which won the hole. Her mental toughness under lots of pressure was amazing.”

On the boys side, Dennis carded a 39 and 36 to finish with a 75.

“Seth punched his ticket to state with a gritted back nine to finish 75,” said Warren boys coach Nathan Evans.

Overall, the Warriors were second with 326 points to district champion Dover’s 309. After Dennis, sophomore Jacob Smeeks shot a career-low 78. Chance Weihl had an 86; Caleb Davis, 87; and Nathan Heft, 92. “I thought our team hung tough all day,” Evans said.
