The Richmond-Burton girls golf team held on to beat Crystal Lake Central co-op by one shot Wednesday and win the Marian Central Invitational at Boone Creek in Bull Valley. 

The Rockets' top-four golfers finished with a team total of 333, one better than the Tigers. Prairie Ridge was third with a 414 at the six-team tournament. Marian did not use enough golfers to particpate in the team portion.

Mackenzie Hahn of R-B shot an 80 and Kat Cummings added an 84. Sophia Archos led Marian with an 82, and Erin Wing was the top golfer for Prairie Ridge with an 87.
