GOSHEN — Continuing a tradition that dates back six years now, the SBAAC Girls Golf Championship individual medalist is a Clinton County golfer.
Katie Murphy had a 92 Tuesday at Eagles Nest Golf Course and not only won the league 18-hole tournament but overall season medalist honors.
Murphy, whose brother Jack won consecutive boys golfer of the year honors in 2018 and 2019, started the year slowly with a 101 in the preseason 18-hole tournament. She trailed the leader by six strokes but steadily took over from there.
She had a 49 in the first nine-hole outing to take the lead then followed with 49 and 37 to have a safe lead going in to the tournament on Tuesday.
Murphy’s 92 gives her a 20-shot win and makes it three individual medalists in a row after Lilly Middleton won back-to-back titles the past two years.
Prior to Middleton, Clinton-Massie’s Gabby Woods was the tournament medalist three years.
Wilmington finished as runnersup in the league tournament and third overall. Clinton-Massie was fifth in the league tournament.
The Falcons did have two second-team players in Stormie Stroud and Kaden Kimple.
Zoey Hupp had a 116 for Blanchester on Tuesday while Gretchen Boggs had a 133 for East Clinton. Kimple had 115 for Clinton-Massie.
Goshen won the girls golf team championship this season.
