The 2017 TSSAA State Golf Championships wrapped up Tuesday at WillowBrook Golf Club in Manchester, Tn. with the Division II classification.

After finishing as runners-up last year, the FRA girls ran away with this year’s trophy, beating Boyd Buchanan by 26 strokes. Led by freshman Tzunami Polito and junior Angelina Chan, who finished 2nd and 3rd respectively, the Panthers duo finished at +13 for the 2-day tournament.

The Ensworth girls captured the runners-up trophy edging out Baylor by two strokes. Caroline Frist garnered the 3rd place medal individually.

After an errant tee shot, CPA’s A. Jacks Green holed out his third shot from the fairway for a birdie to punctuate his round at -6 for a two-day score of -11 to win the DII-A boys individual title. The score was the 4th best round in TSSAA Golf Championship history.

The Brentwood Academy boys finished in a tie for 2nd in the DII-AA division.
