COLUMBUS - Makayla Dull was a little late to homecoming Saturday night.
It's common practice for the All-Ohio selections to be asked to stick around for pictures.
And since Dull finished tied for fifth in Division II Girls State Golf Tournament this weekend, she had to stick around to take pictures with fellow first team All-Ohioans.
On Saturday, Dull picked up where she left off Friday afternoon, bettering her first round 79 by two strokes, which tied her with Lima Central Catholic's Shelby Warner and Woodmore's Mikayla Baer for fifth, with a 156.
Thanks in part to her phenomenal 72 on day one, Sandusky Perkins' Maddy Mullins won the individual state title with a 149. Her efforts helped her school with the team title as well.
"My overall goal was top 5 and I came in fifth with a few other girls," Dull said.
Her coach, Chad Garberich said it's quite an accomplishment.
"It's a great accomplishment. She's put a lot of hard work to get back here," Garberich said. "It's well deserved."
After a string of bogeys plagued her on Friday, Dull said that wasn't the case on Saturday.
"I was more consistent," Dull said. "I had a few bogeys here and there. But I also had a birdie today."
Her birdie came on No. 11, a par 3 hole measuring 180 yards. She used her hybrid, which she said can be a bit erratic.
"It was a risk shot because my hybrid is not consistent," Dull said. "So I hit hybrid and played it as a fade and it rolled it up to 6 feet and made that birdie putt."
Garberich said club choice is one of the areas his sophomore star can improve on to move up the podium next year.
"A lot of it is just mental with her. It doesn't matter how many times I tell her, her dad tells her or her swing coach tells her. She has to make some of those decisions herself," he said. "Some of it is club choice and things like bump and run when she has the green to do that. She needs to get stronger and things like that."
Dull said she'd like to work on her swing more in the high school offseason.
"There's always room for improvement," Dull said. "I tend to come flat on my swing path, so I'd like to work on that. And my short game of course."
And she'll get started on it later. She has a dance to make it to.
