WILLISTON Vt. -
The humidity nor the change in venue couldn't stop the Rutland girls golf team from winning its third straight D-I golf state title on Tuesday at the Williston Country Club. The event was moved to Williston this year after several years at the Proctor-Pittsford Country Club. The combination scores of Chloe Levins (84) and Allie Wolf (87) gave the Raiders a total score of 171, twenty-two points better than finalist, St. Johnsbury.
Levins and St. Johnsbury sophomore Sabrina Vieli went to a playoff to decide medalist honors. On the first playoff hole, Vieli made par after her first putt stayed on the lip of the cup. Levins, last year's medalist, was unable to sink a par putt that would have extended the playoff.
In Division II, Lake Region won its first girls golf state title in ten years. The Rangers were led by Olivia king, who shot a 97. She was helped by teammate Celeste Lussier, who shot a 104 for a combined score of 201. Rice finished second with a score of 207. Green Knights junior Madison Myers was the D-II medalist with a low round score of 84. Myers was a medalist her freshman year, having won the title in a playoff. ??
