The IHSA released regional assignments Wednesday for boys and girls golf, which now will be the first of two state series tournament rounds scheduled to take place for the sport in October.

On Wednesday, the IHSA announced an additional round to the postseason for boys and girls golf and boys and girls cross country, allowing for regional and sectional tournaments in the sports. Previously, the IHSA had said there would only be a single round of regional geographic competition.

All boys golf regionals will take place Oct. 6, while all girls golf regionals will be Oct. 7. The top two teams and top four individuals in each regional will advance to sectional play.

Assignments and sites for sectionals, which will take place the week of Oct. 12 to 17, have not yet been released.

Crystal Lake South’s boys team will go for its second straight regional title at the Class 2A Marengo Regional at Marengo Ridge. The Gators will be joined by Fox Valley Conference and crosstown rival Prairie Ridge, along with Harvard, Marengo and Marian Central, among others.

South won regional and sectional titles a year ago and earned its second straight trip to the state tournament.

Elsewhere, McHenry’s boys team will aim for a second straight regional championship in 3A, and Huntley’s girls team, last year’s Fox Valley Conference champion, will attempt for its first regional in 2A.

Johnsburg's girls team will host a 1A regional at Boone Creek in Bull Valley, with golfers from 18 teams, including Harvard, Marengo, Richmond-Burton and Marian Central.

A complete list of regional assignments can be found at IHSA.org.
