September 19, 2014, became a very special day at New Prairie High School. History was made when freshmen golfer, Kara Blair, won the LaPorte Girls IHSAA Golf Sectional with a score of 82. This historic win marks the first ever medalist performance by any New Prairie golfer, male or female. With her win, Kara qualified for the Regional which was held at Battle Ground Golf Course in Lafayette. At the Regional, Kara shot a 41 on the front nine and a much improved 39 on the back nine which left her one scant stroke short of advancing to the State Finals. The New Prairie Community is very proud of Kara and will be looking forward to her future performances.
