PCHS girls’ golf takes first

The Park City High School girls’ golf team beat second place Carbon by 94 points in the Stableford scoring system, and almost as many in stroke play, at a 54-hole tournament on Wednesday at Soldier Hollow.

"It went well today," said PCHS coach George Murphy. "Everybody played very well."

Sami Crouch was 4-under with just six holes to play before winds picked up and some minor putting issues led her to shoot a 3-over 75.

The result gave the Class 3A defending state champion a Region 10 title, with teammate Ciera Perry (84) in second, Abby Cohen (93) in third, and E.J. Elliott (98) in fourth. Kendall Blake (97) took seventh in region, and PCHS won the team Region 10 title.

Union finished third followed by Wasatch in fourth at the tournament, originally schedule to be played at Homestead Golf Club until weather concerns forced them to move across town to Solider Hollow.

The state tournament will be held in Salt Lake at Meadowbrook on Thursday, May 13.

"We have a pretty good chance," said Murphy, whose Miners were third two years ago and second last year.

Murphy said Crouch has the skill to repeat as state champion, it’s just a matter of having a strong performance on the right day. He said Crouch has received multiple offers from colleges out of state, but plans to attend the University of Utah on a full-ride scholarship and continue golfing on the national level as an aspiring professional.
