Menne wins state junior golf title No. 3

The story of Xavier Prep’s Ashley Menne continues to grow and grow.

The junior-to-be added another significant chapter on June 19 and 20 when she became the first person to win three consecutive Arizona State Junior Golf Championships at the Talking Rock Golf Club in Prescott.

About a week after earning her second straight Golfer of the Year award, Menne went out and put together back-to-back 6-under-par 66s, with no bogeys. That allowed her to win this tournament by 11 strokes.

Xavier also was well represented elsewhere on the leader board.

Junior Breyana Matthews and sophomore  Bailee Tayles tied for 11th. Junior Millburn Ho tied for the 15th spot. Senior Eve Worden tied for 21st, and senior Emily Cons tied for 34th.
