BREAKING: Hendricken Wins High School Golf State Title

The Bishop Hendricken Hawks are the high school golf state champions. 

Hendricken beat East Greenwich by six shots on Wednesday afternoon at Cranston Country Club to claim their first golf title since 2017. 

“It’s and amazing feeling. We put the time in starting in April, and even a few weeks ago I wasn’t sure we were ready to get the job done, but these guys trended in the right direction over the last week, week and a half, and it just feels great,” said Hendricken coach Rick Angeli after the tournament.


The Hawks posted a team score of 49-over par for the two days, beating out East Greenwich, who posted 55-over par.

“It’s incredible, absolutely incredible. After 2019, we lost by one, tough loss and then because of covid we couldn’t play the next year. Words can’t explain how happy I am,” said senior Ricky Angeli, the coaches son. 

For the tournament, the Hawks were led by Angeli, who finished at seven-over for the two days and in fourth place overall. 

“I”m happy that he led us on Tuesday, played well, was really our anchor guy. Today, being near the lead and chasing the individual title I think got to him a little bit. When he made the turn I got to him and said ‘it’s time to stand up, you have to come through for us’ and he rattled off three birdies,” said coach Angeli. 

In the final round, Hendricken was led by Brady Williams and Harry Grimes, both who posted 76. 

Angeli posted a 77 with three birdies on the back side, while Andrew Chadwick added a 79 to round out the scoring. 

Meanwhile, East Greenwich was led by Jack McMullen who posted a 74 and finished in third overall. 

La Salle, Barrington and Moses Brown round out the top five. 

Wheeler finished sixth.
