The Morgan Girls’ Golf team wrapped up the Region 13 title Thursday, April 25, 2024, at Schneiter’s Bluff Golf Course in West Point after their two-day competition. The first day was contested at Glen Eagle Golf Course in Syracuse.

The Trojans led after the first day of the tournament with a team score of 347 at Glen Eagle. Union placed second with 373 strokes while Ben Lomond and Grantsville were within two strokes of each other at 398 and 400.  

Morgan continued to play strongly, but Scheiter’s Bluff extracted more out of all of the players, and the Trojans won the day with 358 strokes for a two-day total of 705. Union retained second place (373) while Grantsville (402) eclipsed Ben Lomond (404) with a tough second-day round to place third.

Morgan’s Jane Poll earned medalist honors shooting 160 over the two days (78 at Glen Eagle and 82 at Schneiter’s Bluff). Union’s Brooklyn Brown took second and the Trojan’s Kenadee Benson moved up to secure third place in the region after shooting the fifth-highest score on Day 1 and placing third on Day 2. Coming in sixth individually, Camden Smith bettered her finish on Day 2 of the tournament, placing fourth.

The first day, Morgan’s fourth scoring golfer was Kayla Gale with a 95. On the second day, Ashlyn Noss cut four strokes off her Wednesday finish to score fourth for Morgan. Noss earned a Top 10 finish in ninth, tallying a 99 on Day 1 and 95 on Day 2.  

“Our golfers were great,” assistant coach Kacey DeMond shared. “I’m really happy for Jane and for all of the hard work our girls have put in. I’m excited to have four in the top 10. We are looking forward to State. There are some great teams and great players!”

The Trojans will travel to state May 8-May 9 at Meadow Brook GC in Taylorsville. Morgan will be contending against returning state champion Richfield and the Region 14 champions, Juan Diego.

Morgan (366.98), Juab (379.98) and Union (384.33) round out the top five.  

In their final week of regular-season Morgan hosted a Region 13 match Wednesday, April 17 at Round Valley Golf Course and played Thursday, at Sun Hills in Layton.

Morgan won both of the tournaments by several strokes. On their home course, they shot a 354 to best Union by almost 30 strokes (385). Ben Lomond (395) and Grantsville (399) were third and fourth.
