2010 WPIAL GIRLS' GOLF
The Lady Tigers will compete in Division I of the WPIAL along with 14 other teams. Beginning with the 2010 season, the alignment is a two-division system for team play, Division I and Division II. Each team will be assigned a maximum of 13 team competitions, section and exhibition. Section games only will be used to determine entry in the girls' golf team championships. The top two teams and ties for second place in each section will enter the team championship semi-finals on October 12, 2010. If two teams tie for second place but one of the teams has lost both head-to-head contest, that team will not enter the tournament round. Three-way ties will be broken in the following manner:
1. Section records of
the tied teams will be compiled.
The top three teams from each semi-final site will advance to the team championship round on October 14, 2010. A team champion will be declared in both divisions. The top team (Division I or Division 2) from the WPIAL team championship will participate in the PIAA Team Tournament.
The format for girls' golf is a team comprised of five golfers who play for a combined team total medal score for the day. Only the top four scores will count to determine the team winner for the match. This format is in effect for all team matches.
All teams must field a minimum of four players. Failure to field four players will result in a forfeit victory for the opponent, provided they have at least four players ready to play.
In case of a tie in the total medal score, each coach will choose two players to represent their squad in a two-hole playoff with the twosome shooting the lowest combined score winning. If there is still a tie after the two-hole playoff, the players will play "sudden death" extra holes until the tie is broken.
The WPIAL will provide Division I and Division 2 golfers with an opportunity to compete for an individual championship in each division. The WPIAL Individual Championship will be contested by qualifying players representing members schools. Each player must follow the approved qualifying process in order to qualify for the championship.
Each sectional qualifier will be hosted at one of the section courses. The host school for 2010 is designated by an asterisk (*) in the listing of schools in each section. The 2010 sectional qualifiers have been scheduled for Wednesday, September 22, 2010. Players will advance from each sectional qualifier to the individual championship round by:
1. Placing in the top
five scores, including ties OR
The Golf Steering Committee will determine the course rating, target score, distance, and tees to be played and notify each sectional manager of this information.
