In the 1A/2A Ambrose High School Freshman Carly Carter posted rounds of 73 and 77 for 2nd place finish, 3 shots behind the winner senior Tyler Erickson.
Carly struck the ball great on day one but putting kept her from a round in the 60’s. On day two, she had some distance control issues on approach shots, but she putted better and finished out a good round.
I am very proud of Carly for the hard work she has done on her game in recent months. Congratulations Carly!!
In the girls 5A tournament Christine Cho a freshman at Eagle High School led her team to the 5A State High School Golf Championship title. Christine had her struggles off the tee on day one and some putting issues the second day. However, she never gave up and managed to post rounds of 81, 77. She was medalist for her team and finished 3rd overall.
Christine was also named the Eagle High Athlete of the Year for Golf. Congratulations Christine!!
In the boys 5A State Golf Championship sophomore Jake Slocum of Rocky Mountain High finished T4 overall and contributed to his team’s third state championship in a row.
The first day Jake faced a great deal of adversity posting an 80, one of his highest scores in the past couple years. The second day Jake came back with a great 5 under par 67.
I am so proud of Jake for not getting discouraged and giving up. He went out the second day to post the best score he could. Jake showed me yet again his great character, tenacity and grit, things essential to play championship golf. Congratulations Jake!
