HORSEHEADS — Waverly freshman Breanne Robinson finished 10th — missing a
trip to States by one spot —and the Lady Wolverines finished fourth
here Thursday afternoon at the Section IV Girls Golf Championships at
Soaring Eagles Golf Course.
This is the first Section IV Championship since 2019. Waverly won four Section titles in a row from 2016 to ’19.
Horseheads won the first seven Section IV crowns, and returned to the top of the heap Thursday with a four-player aggregate of 354, well ahead of runner-up Corning, which carded a 376. Lansing was third with a 388, Waverly tallied a 437, and Odessa-Montour was fifth with 441.
Robinson shot a 95 — four shots behind ninth-place finisher Delaney Cook of Horseheads —on the 6,332-yard, par-71 Soaring Eagles course, while 8th-grader Addison Hunt carded a 107, 8th-grader Sophia Sileo had a 115, and freshman Maddie Farnham added a 120.
Freshman Lauryn DeLill tacked on a non-scoring round of 122.
Corning’s Lucia Chen earned low-medal honors and the Section IV title with a 3-under par round of 68 — 11 strokes better than runners-up Brooklyn Moffe and Hannah Masaki, who both shot rounds of 79.
