East Ridge girls golf: Raptors send four girls to day No. 2, but no one to state

East Ridge's Molly Richardson shot a 180 two-day total at the Section 3AAA tournament, but came up just short of a state tournament berth.

The East Ridge girls golf team had four individuals qualify for day two of the Section 3AAA tournament, held Friday, June 3, at Bunker Hills Golf Course in Coon Rapids, however, the season came to an end as none advanced to state.
