Making a State-ment - BGHS girls run away with state golf championship

AMES—One word can define the 2021 season for the Bishop Garrigan Golden Bear girls’ golf team and that is dominant. The word was illustrated clearly on Tuesday, June 2 and Wednesday, June 3 as the black-and-gold lapped the Class 1A field at the state golf tournament to defend their state title.

The Golden Bears won the 2019 state title and last year’s season was cancelled because of COVID-19, costing the squad the chance for another title. Bishop Garrigan shot a round of 342 on Tuesday and a 329 on Wednesday to blow away the field by a whopping 74 strokes.
