The St. Mary’s Academy golf team won their third consecutive state title at the 3A State Championship in Aspen yesterday, winning by 11 strokes. The championship was held on May 30 and 31.

Junior Maddy Bante also won the individual title for the second year in a row. Junior Maddy Bante led the team shooting an impressive 69 (2 under par) on Wednesday. She also won the individual state title at the championship.

Junior Reese Brown, Freshman Amelia Parrott, and Freshman Malika Haro contributed to the team’s resounding victory.

Coach Ann Wolta expressed pride in her team’s achievement, “This three-peat victory is a testament to the dedication and relentless effort put forth by our golfers. They have shown incredible resilience and sportsmanship throughout the season, and their win reflects their unwavering commitment. I am truly honored to coach such an exceptional group of athletes.”

The team’s win was calculated by the three lowest scores of Maddy, Reese, and Amelia. They won over Peak to Peak Charter School and Aspen High School, who both tied for second.
