BREAKING: La Salle Wins State Championship
The La Salle Academy Rams won the 2022 High School Golf State Championship on Wednesday afternoon at Cranston Country Club.
The Rams posted a two-day score of 605 (37-over) to beat Bishop Hendricken and by 19 shots and claim the title.
“This kind of was a dominant year for us. We led the state in scoring average, and we showed it in these big tournaments. I’m just really happy for our seniors. This year just felt different because of how close we all were,” said La Salle star Max Jackson after the round.
This is La Salle’s first golf team title since 1974.
The Rams now own the Girls Individual State Tittle, Team Title and the Boys Individual State Title (more to come on that.)
“La Salle is a golf school,” Jackson added.
In talking to officials at the event, it is unknown when the last time a team won all three titles.

In the final round, the Rams were led by Jackson, who posted a 72.
Meanwhile, Girls Champ Olivia Williams contributed a 74, and Joseph Earley added a 75.
Charles Melvin rounded out the scoring with a final round 80.
