2018 story:  Three Eau Claire Memorial golfers finished in the top five, led by junior Billy Peterson's runner-up finish with a 76, as the Old Abes fired a 314 at Troy Burne Golf Club in Hudson to win the WIAA Division 1 Hudson regional by six strokes over River Falls. The host Raiders (323) took the third sectional berth while Chippewa Falls (346) turned back New Richmond and Superior, who tied for fifth at 350, for the final sectional berth. It took a score of 86 or better to advance to the sectional individually.

2019 skinny: Ten of the top 11 golfers at last year's regional were underclassmen and seven of them broke 80, which only adds to the anticipation of a regional featuring five teams capable of winning the team title on a Nemadji GC that saw snow as recently as last weekend. Hudson, runner-up to Division 2 Rice Lake at last week's Big Rivers Conference Championship, returns four of the five golfers off last year's team that finished third in this regional led by medalist Bennett Swavely. But Eau Claire Memorial's 1-2 punch of seniors Billy Peterson and Zach Bernhardt could be enough to push the Old Abes to the top of the leaderboard. New Richmond cannot afford a repeat of last week's Middle Border Conference championship, where the Tigers shot a 171 on their inward nine and fell from first to third. If their struggles continue, as many as seven of the eight teams in this regional would have a shot at advancing to the sectional.

Projected sectional team qualifiers: Hudson, Eau Claire Memorial, Superior, River Falls.

Projected sectional individual qualifiers: Alex Nelson, Chippewa Falls; Owen Covey, so., New Richmond; Grant Imsande, Menomonie; Michael Maguire, Menomonie.

2018 story: Junior Evan Thomas shot 74, one shot behind medalist Russell Dettmering of Merrill, as Stevens Point (328) edged Wisconsin Valley Conference rival Wausau West (329) to win the Merrill regional at Merrill GC. Schofield D.C. Everest (343) and Marshfield (346) edged the host Bluejays (348) for the final two sectional berths. It took a score of 85 or better to qualify for the sectional individually.

2019 skinny: Four of the six Wisconsin Valley Conference schools in this regional won legs of the season-long WVC Tournament, which should say something about the balance of power that will converge on Antigo Bass Lake. Schofield D.C. Everest and Stevens Point each had two golfers finish in the top six of the WVC standings, but Marshfield had three in the top 10. Fortunately for the WVC teams, neither Antigo (365) nor Rhinelander (363) played well at Bass Lake during the leg of the Great Northern Conference Tournament played there a week ago. Merrill's Russell Dettmering, who broke through a year ago as a sophomore and qualified for the state tournament for the first time, earned player-of-the-year honors in the Wisconsin Valley after winning five of the seven legs.

Projected sectional team qualifiers: Stevens Point, Schofield D.C. Everest, Marshfield, Merrill.

Projected sectional individual qualifiers: Carter Sygan, Wausau East; Frank Volpentesta, Antigo; Nick Twite, Rhinelander.

2018 story: Seniors Jed Baranczyk (75) and Nate Kroll (79) and sophomore Preston Cedergren (78) all broke 80 as host Bay Port (318) turned back Green Bay Notre Dame (322) at Brown County GC and won its own regional. Green Bay Preble (345) and Antigo (349) also advanced to the sectional. It took a score of 89 or better to move on to the sectional individually.

2019 skinny: Green Bay Notre Dame comes into the WIAA postseason on the heels of an impressive 319 at the Fox River Classic Conference, a score good enough to earn the Tritons a 12-stroke victory over two-time defending FRCC champion Sheboygan North. Bay Port, which finished third at the FRCC Championship, will need to summon the spirit of last year and count more than just one score under 85 as it was forced to do last week at Wander Springs in Greenleaf. Green Bay Southwest will have to make up at least 10 shots on Pulaski and Green Bay Preble if it is to snag a sectional berth.

Projected sectional team qualifiers: Green Bay Notre Dame, Bay Port, Green Bay Preble, Pulaski.

Projected sectional individual qualifiers: Trent Thomas, Green Bay Southwest; Mitchell Stary, Green Bay Southwest; Nick Sherman, Shawano; Kaden Marcell, Shawano.

2018 story: Kaukauna junior Brock Hlinak shot a 7-under-par 64 at Reid Municipal GC in Appleton and earned medalist honors by eight strokes over two golfers, including junior teammate Zachary Klingseisen, as the Galloping Ghosts fired a 288 and topped host Appleton North and Neenah by 21 shots to win the Appleton North regional title. Kimberly (316) claimed the final sectional berth. It took a score of 80 or better to make it to the sectional individually. 

2019 skinny: The senior duo of Brock Hlinak and Tyler Cleaves begin their final WIAA postseason run looking to lead a Kaukauna squad that returns four of the five golfers off a team that finished fifth in the state in 2018. Can the Galloping Ghosts go 64-72-73 as they did a year ago? They went 67-74-75 at last week's Fox Valley Association Championship at Chaska GC in Greenville so anything's possible. But coaches Pete and Andy Benson would be happy to see four scores of 78 or better, which is probably as low as Kaukauna will have to go to win the regional. Neither Hortonville nor Neenah nor Appleton East were able to break 330 at last week's FVA Championship. 

Projected sectional team qualifiers: Kaukauna, Neenah, Hortonville, Appleton East.

Projected sectional individual qualifiers: Jake Gilbert, Appleton North; Bryce Kohler, Menasha; Mike Garrity, Appleton North; Austin Georger, Appleton West.

2018 story: Sophomore Kip Sullivan shot 75 to earn medalist honors by one stroke as Middleton (311) slipped past Waunakee (317) to win its own regional at Pleasant View GC in Middleton. Verona qualified third out of the regional en route to winning its sectional while Oregon (334) edged Madison West (35) for the last of the four sectional team berths. It took a score of 85 or better for an individual to advance from this regional to the sectional.

2019skinny: Middleton and Waunakee return eight of the 10 golfers that battled one another at this regional a year ago, led by Middleton's junior No. 4 golfer Kip Sullivan, who returns to defend his regional title. But Mount Horeb (runner-up to Waunakee in the Badger North Conference) and Verona (runner-up to Middleton in the Big Eight) are poised to rise to the top should the Cardinals or Warriors falter. This is Mount Horeb's first season in Division 1 after winning the Division 2 Big Foot regional a year ago at Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva. Madison Memorial and Baraboo could enter the picture for sectional berths if their freshmen golfers in the middle of their lineups can come up big.

Projected sectional team qualifiers: Middleton, Waunakee, Verona, Mount Horeb.

Projected sectional individual qualifiers: Silas Pickhardt, Madison Memorial; Matthew Sorenson, Madison Memorial; Dane Hinz, Baraboo; Erik Buinivicius, Madison West.

Sparta (336) tipped Tomah (337) for third place, but both moved on to the sectional. It took a score of 89 or better to advance out of the regional individually.

2019 skinny: Wisconsin Rapids joins this regional from the New Richmond sectional, but it will take a strong showing for the Red Raiders to catch Holmen, Tomah or Reedsburg at the top of the leaderboard. Holmen has developed a deep lineup with five players capable of breaking 80 as it showed at the Mississippi Valley Conference Championship where No. 3 golfer Nathan Damaschke shot 79 and the Raiders threw out an 84 from No. 1 golfer Cody Dirks to beat Tomah 324-332. Sparta junior Austin Erickson, the MVC player of the year, is among the favorites to take home medalist honors.

Projected sectional team qualifiers: Holmen, Tomah, Reedsburg, Onalaska.

Projected sectional individual qualifiers: Austin Erickson, Sparta; Spencer Sparks, Wisconsin Rapids; Andrew Sparks, Wisconsin Rapids; Kaleb Lycke, La Crosse Logan.

2018 story:  Sophomore Sam Nielsen shot 74 to earn medalist honors by two strokes as Fond du Lac (313) put away De Pere (341) to win the Ashwaubenon regional at Brown County GC near Green Bay. De Pere (341), West De Pere (358) and Oshkosh West (360) picked up the three other sectional berths. It took a score of 94 or better to qualify for the sectional individually.

2019 skinny: The bottom portion of the Fond du Lac lineup returns led by 2018 medalist Sam Nielsen, but the Cardinals could have company atop the leaderboard from regional newcomer Plymouth, which shot 336 to place second at its own regional a year ago, joins the mix at Oshkosh North this year and brings some depth to the top of the leaderboard. De Pere and West De Pere have the inside track on the final two sectional berths. 

Projected sectional team qualifiers: Fond du Lac, Plymouth, West De Pere, De Pere.

Projected sectional individual qualifiers: Luke Schroeder, Ashwaubenon; Trent Krause, Oshkosh West; Jackson Jazgar, Ashwaubenon; Amin Faysal, Oshkosh West.

2018 story: Hartland Arrowhead placed four golfers in the top five led by defending state champion Piercen Hunt's 70 as the Warhawks (292) clobbered Menomonee Falls (319) to take the team title at the Mequon Homestead regional. Homestead (323) and Oconomowoc (325) grabbed the two remaining sectional berths ahead of Slinger (327). It took a score of 82 or better to advance to sectionals individually.  

2019 skinny: The WIAA finally broke up the mega-sectional in southeast Wisconsin and, in this regional, sent Menomonee Falls and Oconomowoc elsewhere. Arrowhead is still the overwhelming favorite with a seasoned lineup led by two-time defending state champion Piercen Hunt, an Illinois commit. Slinger and host Sussex Hamilton should have no troubles making it through this regional, but the scramble for the final berth could get interesting if Beaver Dam, which returns three golfers from a team that made it through the DeForest regional a year ago can't better its 180 average behind medalist contender Zak Kulka, a UW-Green Bay recruit. 

Projected sectional team qualifiers: Harland Arrowhead, Sussex Hamilton, Slinger, Beaver Dam.

Projected sectional individual qualifiers: Seth Zais, West Bend East; Kabel Wuebben, West Bend West; Griffin Meyer, Watertown; Ethan Zais, West Bend East.

2018 story: Junior Blake Wisdom shot 75 to share medalist honors with senior teammate Connor Duggan as Lake Geneva Badger shot 326 and topped runner-up Milton by 13 shots for the team title at its own sectional at Geneva National's Palmer Course. Janesville Parker (344) and Janesville Craig (350) advanced to the sectional ahead of Fort Atkinson, which missed by four shots. It took a score of 91 or lower to make it to the sectional individually.

2019 skinny: With Bucknell recruit Blake Wisdom back for his final WIAA tournament run, Lake Geneva is in good hands in its quest for another regional title. Mukwonago shifts into this sectional, which it will host, after falling in a sectional playoff to Brookfield Central a year ago at the Waukesha West sectional for the second state berth. The third and fourth sectional berths are up for grabs between as many as four schools separated by nine strokes.

Projected sectional team qualifiers: Lake Geneva Badger, Mukwonago, Milton, Janesville Parker.

Projected sectional individual qualifiers: Connor Kelly, Jaensville Craig; Nolan Shirk, Elkhorn; Dan Thomsen, Jansville Craig; Griffin Oberneder, Beloit Memorial.

2018 story: Junior Zak Kulka of Beaver Dam shot 76 at Lake Windsor CC to earn medalist honors by one stroke over Monona Grove senior Jake Schroekenthaler as their teams tied for third with matching 344s and landed the final two sectional berths ahead of host DeForest (346). Portage (331) edged Sun Prairie (333) for the team title. It took a score of 85 or lower to advance to the sectional individually.

2019 skinny: Monona Grove is the top seed in this regional despite graduating four of the five golfers off its 2018 sectional qualifying team and playing most of this season without its one returnee Drew Munn due to injury. Sun Prairie, which finished third in the Big Eight Conference, could jump past the Silver Eagles with a strong round from UW-Eau Claire-bound senior Ethan Carrick. Oregon, behind its senior duo of Sam Schroeder and John Klus, could also play its way into the mix for the team title, leaving Badger North Conference rivals Portage and DeForest to fight for the final sectional berth. Less than one strokes separates the two teams on average and, last week at the Badger North Conference Championship, DeForest (358) edged Portage (359) by one shot for fourth place.

Projected sectional team qualifiers: Sun Prairie, Oregon, Monona Grove, DeForest.

Projected sectional individual qualifiers: Marcus Herwig, Portage; Connor Levander, Portage; Garrett May, Madison La Follette; George Philbin, Madison La Follette.

Waukesha West (321) and Pewaukee (324) also advanced to the sectional. It took a score of 82 or better for an individual to reach the sectional.

2019 skinny: Mukwonago's exit opens the door for Pewaukee, a bubble team a year ago that moved on to the sectional, to get there without the drama this year. Kettle Moraine should again set the pace at Naga-Waukee GC while Waukesha West, which finished third a year ago, will likely wind up there again in 2019. The most intriguing battle will be the one for the final team berth between Waterford, Oconomowoc and, possibly, Waukesha North. 

Projected sectional team qualifiers: Kettle Moraine, Pewaukee, Waukesha West, Oconomowoc.

Projected sectional individual qualifiers: Josh Koszarek, Waterford; Logan Adams, Waterford; Luke Rader, Waukesha North; Zach Weis, Waterford.

2019 skinny: North Shore Conference champion Mequon Homestead and Germantown, the third-place team in the Greater Metro Conference, move into this regional that was dominated by Sheboygan North a year ago. North will be playing with a purpose with coach Andrew Delong, at the helm the last 10 years, have announced he will take the UW-Stout men's golf coaching job after the season. Glendale Nicolet will need a command performance of its NSC showing (the Knights had four golfers shoot 90 or better) if its to hold off Cedarburg for the final sectional berth.

Brookfield East (324) and West Allis Hale (346) had no trouble getting the other two sectional berths. Individuals needed to shoot 105 or better to get to the sectional on their own.

2019 skinny: All four golfers behind 2018 state runner-up Adam Garski in the Wauwatosa East/West lineup of a year ago are back as the Red Raiders join Menomonee Falls, Brookfield Central and Brookfield East in a new-look, hybrid regional that shouldn't have many surprises after the top four. Three golfers return for both Brookfield Central and Brookfield East in their bid to keep pace with the Tosa co-op and Menomonee Falls, which shot 319-301 at regionals and sectionals and still managed to be left at home the week of the WIAA state tournament..

Franklin finished with a 311 while the Panthes were next at 320. Host Greenfield (349) and Muskego (356) also advanced. Individual qualifiers needed to shoot 92 or better to get through to the sectional.

2019 skinny: Union Grove moves in from the Waukesha South regional and is immediately installed as the team to beat. The Broncos have capable veterans in Connor Brown and Nate Koch, but the Broncos will need to be at their best with as many as four other teams capable of walking away with the team title. Greendale's James Johnson figures to battle Brown and Muskego's Mason Polivka for medalist honors.

Projected sectional team qualifiers: Greendale, Union Grove, Muskego, Westosha Central.

Projected sectional individual qualifiers: Nick Hough, New Berlin Eisenhower; Gabe Olson, New Berlin Eisenhower; Nick Roberts, Whitnall; Devin Spath, Wilmot .

2018 story: Senior Zach Shawhan of Racine Case shot 71 at Ives Grove GL in Sturtevant to earn medalist honors by one shot and lead the Eagles (314) to a three-stroke victory over Wilmot (317). Kenosha Indian Trail (322) and Wsestosha Central (323) scooped up the other two sectional berths. It took an 83 or better to qualify for sectionals individually.

2019 skinny: Franklin, which won the Greenfield regional a year ago, comes over to lead the chase for qualifying berths at this regional. The Sabers return the four golfers behind Brett Grulkowski a year ago and that should be enough to boost them past Southeast Conference foes Kenosha Tremper, Kenosha Indian Trail and Racine Case.

Projected sectional team qualifiers: Franklin, Racine Case, Kenosha Tremper, Kenosha Indian Trail.

Projected sectional individual qualifiers: Brad Greish, Oak Creek; Evan Dachel, Oak Creek; Alec Ruffolo, Kenosha Bradford/Reuther; Zach Romano, Racine Horlick.

2018 story: All five Milwaukee Marquette golfers shot 80 or better, but the Hilltoppers (314) finished second to Wauwatosa East/West (306) at its own regional. It took a score of 120 or better to qualify for sectionals individually.

2019 skinny: With the exception of Milwaukee Marquette, Milwaukee South and Milwaukee King, this regional looks nothing like the one Greenfield hosted a year ago (the one Franlin won by nine shots over Greendale). Marquette, the defending WIAA Division 1 state champion, is projected to win as many as 80 shots. 

Projected sectional team qualifiers: Milwaukee Marquette, Greenfield, St. Francis/Cudahy, South Milwaukee.

Projected sectional individual qualifiers:  Joshua Koch, Milwaukee King; Zechariah Lee, Milwaukee Tech; Daniel Skelly, Milwauke Tech; Ahmed Omar, Milwaukee South.
