Marengo junior Jennifer Heinberg will make her third straight appearance in the IHSA 3-Point Showdown next week at Illinois State University's Redbird Arena.
Heinberg was the only local player to advance from Thursday's Class 2A Mendota Sectional. The Indians sharpshooter made 8 of 15 shots to qualify, with only Rockford Christian's Noelle Lavery hitting more with nine.
Johnsburg senior Sarah Metze sank seven shots but missed the last qualifying spot in a shoot-off.
The 3-Point Showdown preliminaries are Thursday, with the top four advancing to Friday's finals.
Heinberg finished the season with an area-high 106 3-pointers, a single-season record for Marengo, and led the Indians to their second straight Kishwaukee River Conference co-championship and third straight 20-win season.
