Girls Golf: Grandview, Eaglecrest finish 3rd-4th at opening Centennial League meet


AURORA | Cherry Creek and Arapahoe waged their typical battle at Wednesday’s Centennial League girls golf tournament, while Grandview came in a strong third.


The defending Class 5A state champion Bruins took the first conference meet of the season at Broken Tee Golf Course as they placed five players in the top nine to win by 14 strokes over the Warriors, who had Hannah Wood shoot a 2-under-par 70 to take individual medalist honors.

Among Aurora teams, Grandview finished a solid third behind a strong performance from freshman Morgan Sahm, who shot a 4-over 76 to put herself fourth individually. The Wolves came in 33 strokes ahead of fourth-place Eaglecrest, which was paced by senior Jamie Griffin’s 77.

Cherokee Trail finished fifth behind the Raptors, but nine strokes ahead of Mullen, while Overland and Smoky Hill did not have enough golfers to record a team score.

Two previously scheduled Centennial League tournaments at South Suburban and Springhill were scrubbed because of weather.

The next league tournament is scheduled for 1:06 p.m. April 11 at Aurora’s Meadow Hills Golf Course.
