The Alton Redbirds did not have enough golfers to field a complete team, but that didn’t stop junior Addison Kenney from qualifying for Monday’s sectional.

She shot a 78 which earned her fifth place overall.

Collinsville’s Kiley Belobraydic (82) and Granite City’s Abigail Brinker (87) also moved on.

Monday’s sectional will be played in Normal at Ironwood Golf Course beginning at 9 a.m.
