State Tournament Recaps

Division I Girls
Dublin Jerome Wins Seventh Title; Hammond Ties Course Record
COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Dublin Jerome girls golf team never trailed on its way to winning its seventh OHSAA Division I golf state championship, while New Albany sophomore Mia Hammond went four-under-par over the two days to set the OHSAA Division I individual state tournament record and tied the overall record Saturday at the OHSAA girls golf state tournament on the Gray Course at The Ohio State University.
With seven titles, Jerome is still the only girls golf team with more than four state championships, as the Celtics take home the gold trophy for the first time since 2015 (2005-11-12-13-14-15). Jerome junior Alexa Prettyman led the team with a 71-72-143, which tied for second overall, while junior Ellie Ryu shot a 73-76-149 to finish in the Top 10. Junior Mia Ringger (77-71-151) and senior Addie Yarbrough (76-78-156) were both in the Top 20.
Hammond shot 67-69-136, which is the best Division I individual two-day total in OHSAA state tournament history and ties the overall record held by Sarah Willis from Eaton, who shot a 68-68-136 at the 2016 Division II state tournament. The previous Division I state tournament record was set by Katie Hallinan from Cincinnati Walnut Hills with a 68-69-137 in 2017.
Also shooting a 143 to join Prettyman with runner-up medalist honors were senior Isabella Goyette from Medina Highland, junior Skylar Dean from Lewis Center Olentangy Orange and senior Sydney Deal from Perrysburg.
Division II Girls
Columbus Academy Wins Back-to-Back State Championships
COLUMBUS, Ohio – On Friday, the Columbus Academy girls golf team shot a single-round Division II state tournament record 307, and followed it up with a 313 on a rainy Saturday to win their second-consecutive state championship and set the Division II overall state record (620) on the Gray Course at The Ohio State University. Their state-record performance was 10 shots better than the previous state record of 630 set by Lima Central Catholic in 2020. 
Academy freshman Eva Lim shot a 75-75-150, which tied for the second-lowest score overall. Junior Caroline Zeiger shot a 78-76-154 to finish sixth overall. Senior Angela Hu and senior Sydney Fortney both shot 77-81-158 to tie for 12th overall.
Academy’s three state tournament appearances have all come in the last three years and the Viking now have two state titles.
Laurel senior Siena Maschke took home medalist honors with a 70-73-143.
With five seniors who have played in the state tournament each of the last three years, Sugarcreek Garaway was the state runner-up with a 311-326-637, led by Brooklyn Numbers with a 76-79-155 to finish seventh overall. The Pirates have now been in the state tournament 11 times and take home the state runner-up trophy for the second-consecutive year.  
Division I Boys
Anthony Wayne Wins First Title; Two Players Shatter Record
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Whitehouse Anthony Wayne rose above an elite field to win its first golf state championship Saturday on the Scarlet Course at The Ohio State University, while two players were better than the previous individual state tournament record, led by Columbus St. Francis DeSales senior Vaughn Harber’s 69-66-135.
Anthony Wayne was playing in its fourth state tournament and shot a 308 on Friday to sit in fourth place entering the second round. The Generals shot 290 on Saturday, seven strokes better than first round leader Akron Archbishop Hoban, to take the title. Senior Logan Sutto led Anthony Wayne to the state title with a five-under-par 66 on Saturday to cap off a two-day total of 70-66-136, which would have been the new OHSAA state tournament had it not been for an amazing two-day effort turned in by Harber’s new state tournament record 135.
Anthony Wayne senior Ian Briars (75-76-151) and sophomore Michael Distefano (81-72-153) both finished in the Top 20 overall and junior Ted Robertson (82-76-158) tied for 28th to round out the scoring for the Generals. 
Divsion II Boys
Kettering Archbishop Alter Wins Second Straight State Title
SUNBURY, Ohio - Kettering Archbishop Alter won its second straight Division II boys golf state championship with a record-tying two-day score of 596 at NorthStar Golf Club.
Alter posted low team rounds both days. Its opening-round 294 tied the NorthStar Division II tournament record set by Alter in 2021. Alter’s two-day total of 596 matched the NorthStar Division II tournament record set by Gahanna Columbus Academy in 2017. All four of the Knights’ scoring individuals finished in the top 10 overall.
The state title was Alter’s sixth; it is the fourth school with at least six boys golf state championships.
Cincinnati Wyoming’s Finley Bartlett earned medalist honors—the first in Wyoming history—with a 74-72-146. He finished two shots ahead of runner-up Andy Steed (Clarksville Clinton-Massie), who carded a 75-73-148.

Warren JFK Wins State Title by One Shot over Newark Catholic
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Warren John F. Kennedy and Newark Catholic were tied after the first round Friday, and JFK was one shot better on Saturday to claim the OHSAA Division III boys golf state championship on the Scarlet Course at The Ohio State University.
On a sunny and warm Friday, both teams shot a 320. On a chilly and rainy Saturday, JFK shot a 328, while Newark Catholic shot 329. It was actually a come-from-behind title for JFK on Saturday, as their top four golfers shot a 170 on the front 9 and trailed by seven shots at the turn before shooting 12 strokes better on the back 9 to win by one shot.
It marks the fourth golf state title for JFK (1974, 2000, 2001) in their 16th trip to the state tournament, which had four sophomores and a senior in the lineup. Newark Catholic was making its eighth appearance in the state tournament and in the runner-up for the second year in a row.
JFK won the title despite only having one golfer in the Top 25, which was sophomore Andrew LaPolla, who finished 15th with an 81-76-157. Sophomores Andrew Fredenburg and Henry Phillips shot 164 and 166, respectively, while senior Bryce Van Horn shot a 171.
Independence senior Mark Pillar earned medalist honors with a 72-74-146. Sophomore Alex Eckstein was runner-up with a 76-72-148.
