The Johnsburg girls golf team made some progress Thursday despite a 186-209 loss to Carmel.
The Skyhawks fired two birdies, both the first of the season, during the nine-hole round at the par-36 Heather Ridge Golf Course in Gurnee. Emma Johnson led the way with a 48 while Natalie Flynn (50), Kayla Toussaint (53) and Katie Poczkalski (58) rounded out the scoring in a meet where Johnsburg played short-handed due to sickness.
