St. Mary – Bay View’s Brennan Wins Girls Golf State Championship
St. Mary – Bay View senior Brooke Brennan fired a ten-over par 82 to win the RI Girls High School Golf State Championship on Tuesday afternoon at Warwick Country Club.
Brennan held off top seeded Kylie Eaton, as well as, challenges from Wheeler’s Ayoung Lee and Cranston West’s Ava Santamaria to take home the title.
“It was a well earned victory. Brooke worked extremely hard on her game and comportment on the course. Awesome kid, awesome family, I’m very proud of all my players,” said St. Mary – Bay View Head Coach Terry King.
This is Bay View’s first Golf State Title since 2002 when Ally Caffrey won it as a sophomore.
Brennan got off to a great start, opening the round with three straight pars at a windy Warwick Country Club.
She then bogeyed four and five to move to two-over par for the day, before a triple on the eighth hole moved her to five over at the turn.
Making the turn, Brennan bogeyed ten and doubled 11, before making a string of pars from the 12th to the 16th hole to preserve her lead.
With some wiggle room on the last two holes, she bogeyed 17 and 18 to clinch the title.
