Walk to State with Women's Golfers

The defending Division II state champs made the traditional "Walk to State" through the halls of CJ Thursday morning, led by the Eagle Pep Band and cheered on by classmates, faculty and staff. The team finished the season as the 2012 state runners-up on Saturday, Oct. 13.

The women’s golf team finished the regular season with a sparkling 22-2 record, including a 15-1 mark in the GGCL that included victories over schools such as Seton, Mount Notre Dame, and for the first time in school history, St. Ursula Academy. This season, the team repeated as GGCL Grey Division champions, Xenia Sectional tournament champions and Division II Southwest District tournament champions.

During the two-day state tournament October 12-13, the Eagles followed up their 2011 state championship with a second place finish after shooting a combined 695 in Columbus. The team's day two score of 342 ties a 2009 school record for lowest 18-hole total in program history.

The team was led by seniors Mikaela Hadaway (165) and Emily Poock (183), junior Kaitlyn Cartone (179), sophomore Sarah Downing (174), and freshman Ellie Cronin (185), along with freshmen Lili Kaminski, Sarah Olszewski, Colleen Wagoner and Lizzi Yeazel. Head coach George Menker '55 was named the GGCL Grey North and Southwest Ohio District Coach of the Year.
