Ellie Knight of Auburn will play in the IHSA Class A Girls State Tournament for the second straight year after shooting an 88 at the Jacksonville Sectional held at Jacksonville Country Club Monday.

Knight, a junior, was the ninth of the ten individuals to advance from the Sectional to the State Tourney at Red Tail Run in Decatur this weekend.

The Auburn High girls team reached the Sectional with a third place finish at the Williamsville Regional held at The Rail in terrible conditions last Thursday, as it rained throughout the day.
