    Halfway through her round at Midland Trail Golf Club Sept. 26, Maddie Hensley must have felt the pressure of qualifying again for the state tournament as she has done since sixth grade. Hensley shot 43 on the front nine to put her streak of state qualifications at risk heading to the back nine.

    But she turned it around in the wet and windy conditions and shot 35 on the back nine to finish with a 78 that was good for a tie for sixth place overall and the third of four qualifying spots for individuals.

Hadden, a freshman, lost the title to Clements when Clements birdied the par-five first hole in a playoff but he qualified for the state tournament in Bowling Green and will tee off at 8:30 a.m. Friday on Kentucky high school golf’s biggest stage.
