A state title has been Lauren Slatton’s goal from the moment she took her first swing as a senior for the Lady Pioneers this summer. It felt like a foregone conclusion one of the state’s top golfers would make the field for the fourth time this year, but Slatton had to make sure to clinch her spot Monday.
