Montague’s girls golf team was unable to contend for a third-straight Division 4 state championship, but Mackenzie Goudreau and Natalie Kellogg did a great job repping the Wildcats.
Goudreau and Kellogg both posted top-five individual finishes at the Division 4 state finals Friday and Saturday at The Meadows on the campus of Grand Valley State University.
Goudreau, a junior, shot 80 on Friday and 79 on Saturday to finished with a two-day total of 159, which placed her fourth. Kellogg, a senior, was right behind her with a total of 162 — 80 on Friday and 82 on Saturday.
“The two best state finals performances in program history, and we’ve had a lot of great ones through the years,” Montague coach Phil Kerr wrote on Facebook. “So proud of these two girls for leading this program this year and carrying on our great tradition.”
Ann Arbor Greenhills sophomore Mia Melendez defended her Division 4 state championship by firing a two-day total 149, including a 72 on Friday and 77 on Saturday.
Jackson Lumen Christi ran away with the team title by shooting 688 and beating runner-up Adrian Lenawee Christian by 23 shots.
