The top of the leaderboard looked awfully familiar after the completion of Monday's Big East girls golf meet held at Plum River Golf Course in Preston.
In a repeat of last season, Lisbon brought home the team title, while Marquette's Carly Jacobs earned medalist honors in what was the last conference meet.
It was actually the third-straight title for the Lions, who topped runner-up Camanche by 19 strokes with a 402 (the top winning score since 2008).
Jacobs' title was also by a comfortable margin as she shot a 78 to top Bellevue's Tessa Fahey by 11 strokes (last year Jacobs tied Northeast's Brooke Puckett for top of the conference and won the tiebreaker).
Midland was third in the team race, while Bellevue and Preston finish fourth and fifth, respectively. Fifteen strokes back of the Trojans was Calamus-Wheatland (474) with Northeast taking seventh with a 482.
The Rebels did produce the area's top individual finish as senior Catrina Jargo earned all-conference honors with a seventh-place round of 102.
Jargo played her best golf after the turn as she carded a 50 on the back nine with two pars and two bogeys.
The two pars came on back-to-back holes (17 and 18) with the bogeys coming on the 10th and 13th holes.
Jargo bookended her front nine with pars as well for a 52 that gave her a 102 overall.
Leading the way for the Warriors were juniors Lauren Heilig and Abby Perry, who finished 14th and 15th respectively.
Heilig caught fire during the back nine as she birdie the par-four 17th hole and added a par on the 15th hole, while also bogeying two others as part of a 52.
Heilig bogeyed two more holes on the front nine and finished with a 59 to give her a 111 overall.
Just a stroke back of her was Perry, who did her damage on the front nine with a 53 (including bogeys on five and eight) before adding a 59 on the back nine and shooting a 112.
Vivianne Gustafson added a 121 for the Warriors with a pair of bogeys on the back nine, while Brodi Bousselot finished off Cal-Wheat's team score with a 130. Kylie Wilhelm added a 167 for the Warriors.
The Rebels' second score belonged to freshman Emma Bowman, who parred the par-five seventh hole and added a bogey during her front nine before ultimately shooting a 124.
Cassidy Jacobsen and Megan Petersen wrapped up Northeast's team score with matching 128s. The former had two bogeys during her back nine, while the latter had a balanced day with a 65 on the front and a 63 on the back.
The Warrior girls did not have to wait long to get back on the course, as they were part of a triangular hosted by North Cedar a day later.
Cal-Wheat came back a winner too and by the slimmest of margins as the Warriors toppled Midland by just a single stroke (247-248).
Perry had a big day as she earned medalist honors with a 52, while carding four bogeys.
Heilig added a 61 for the Warriors with Gustafson chipping in a 65 and Bousselot finishing off the team score with a 69. Four strokes behind Bousselot was Wilhelm with a 73.
The Warriors were not done playing either as they battled Midland again on Wednesday in the unique co-ed meet.
Paired with a Warrior boy in a best-ball competition, Cal-Wheat took third at the meet with a 222. Lisbon brought home the title with a 188, while Midland finished five strokes ahead of the Warriors in second.
They might not have won the team title, but Cal-Wheat did produce the medalist, as Heilig teamed with Austin Rickertsen to shoot a 44.
Gustafson and Seth Patterson added a 56 with Perry and Austin Bumann just a stroke behind. Wilhelm and Jacob Gustafson finished things off with a 65.
The Rebel girls were also in action on Wednesday as they hosted Bellevue, Preston and Marquette Catholic in a quadrangular.
Behind three scores in the 60s, Northeast took third in the meet with a 273. Preston shot a 229 to take first, while Bellevue had a 244.
Marquette did not have enough players for a team score, but did have Jacobs, who earned medalist honors with a 47.
The Rebels were led by Jargo, who shot a 64, while Petersen and Jacobsen shot matching 69s. Bowman finished things off for Northeast with a 71.
