The Brighton Lady Cardinals took third at TSSAA Division-I Class 3A State Championship at Willowbrook Golf Course in Manchester this week.
Sophomore standout Aubree Jones was the individual girls champ and low tournament medalist firing a -5 par two-day total of 139 to lead the Lady Cards to a third place finish.
Senior Anna McIntyre finished with a 170 and Tess Hendrickson a 216 to complete the team score (309). Jone’s win made her the second girl to win back-to-back since Courtney Wood of Brentwood High School did it in 98-99.
Jones’ 139 two-day total was the lowest TSSAA Division-I Class 3A State Championship individual girl’s finish in history (dating back to the ’98 season).
“Way to go BHS Lady Cardinals Golf Team, your third place team finish at the TSSAA Division-I Class 3A State Golf Championship at Willowbrook Golf Course in Manchester, makes you the highest finishing golf/sports team in BHS history,” Head Coach Kim Greer. “Way to go Anna, Aubree and Tess.

Not to mention Aubree just won the TSSAA Division-I Class 3A girls state individual championship for the second year in a row, with the lowest individual girl’s total (139) in TSSAA Division-I Class 3A State Golf history (dating back to the 1998-99 season).”
