The 2018 high school girls golf season saw two of Tooele County’s three teams advance to the state tournament, and while neither of them won the big prize, there were several notable performances.
Led by Second Team All-State selection Brittnee Buckingham, the Stansbury girls finished seventh at the Class 4A state tournament in St. George. The Stallions also finished second in Region 11 this season.
Grantsville finished seventh in the Class 3A championships after entering the tournament as the third-place team from Region 13. Erin Shipman was the Cowboys’ top finisher at the state tournament, finishing 21st of the 49 golfers who completed both rounds.
While Tooele didn’t qualify for the Class 4A tournament, the Buffaloes showed improvement throughout the season and figure to make noise in the future. Region 11 features some strong teams — notably, Park City and Stansbury — but the Buffs hope to climb into contention next year.
