The Corner Canyon High girls golf team came in fourth at the 6A state tournament at Stonebridge May 9-10, led by junior Victoria Romney’s fifth-place finish. Lone Peak won state by 59 strokes over second-place Herriman.
Romney, who came in seventh last year in another All-State performance, moved up the leaderboard on day two after a round of 79 had her tied in eighth place with teammate Alyssa Meadows. A score of 85 in the second round for Meadows put the sophomore in a tie for 10th at the state tournament.
Also scoring for the Chargers were Bella Boman, who tied for 29th with rounds of 90 and 91, along with Laney Ross (35th), Abby Brady (48th) and Laila Rowe (tied for 54th).
Head coach Alexis Gagon was monitoring her girls’ play closely online as she was home with a baby who was born the week before the tournament. “It was very close between the second- and fourth-place teams [with nine shots separating the placements] as Lone Peak ran away with first place. The conditions were hard, but the girls played awesome. We are all very proud of them,” she said.
At the Region tournament May 2 at Meadowbrook, Corner Canyon placed second to the Knights by 34 strokes.
Chargers that received All-Region honors were Romney, Meadows, senior Boman and junior Rowe.
Also on the CCHS squad this season were seniors Abby Brady, Alexa Christiansen and Malin Jorgenson; juniors Vivien Lee and Laney Ross; sophomore Aubrey Hobson; and freshmen Annie Kane, Rylee Reinbold and Beca Rogness.
Gagon was assisted by Jackie Kinahan and Jared Miyasaki on the coaching staff along with team managers Eisley Nestman, Katie Shaffer, Lilly Watts, Adrian Hendricks and Allie Eyre.
