MIDDLEBURY, Vt. -- Chloe Levins of Rutland Country Club took the lead on day one of the Vermont Amateur Women’s Golf Championship and never gave it up, going wire-to-wire over three days of competition at the Ralph Myhre Golf Course in Middlebury, winning the event for the first time. Levins was runner-up in 2014 when the event was held at Orleans CC.
Levins’ 74-74-77/225 put her eight strokes ahead of defending champion Tiffany Maurycy of Killington (76-79-78/233).
Andrea Brown of Lakeside was third with 237. Nine-time Amateur champion Holly Reynolds of Copley CC fired a 71 -- the low score of the rain-delayed third round -- for a total score of 239 and a fourth-place finish. In a tie with Reynolds was Carson Laderoute of Burlington CC (84/81/74).
Julia Dapron of the Dorset Field Club won the Junior division (80-85-77/242) over Mia Politano of Ralph Myhre (91-94-82/267) and Jillian Miles of Rutland (106-97-89/292). Miles won the trophy for the lowest net score.
