AHS golfers win state crown

Published on: 6/9/2009

Arrowhead's varsity boys golf team, ranked No. 1 in the state all season, lived up to that lofty billing on Tuesday by winning its third consecutive WIAA Division 1 state title by finishing the two-day, 36-hole meet with a 596 score. That's the second-lowest winning score in meet history.

AHS became the fifth school to capture three straight state titles. Madison West did it twice and Racine and Middleton also won back-to-back-to-back state crowns.

Arrowhead defeated second-place Kettle Moraine by 11 strokes.

If AHS wins the state title next spring, they'll be the first team in state history to capture four straight state championships.

Arrowhead was led by senior Mike Sorenson, who tied for seventh overall with a 147 total. He had rounds of 76-71 to finish at 3-over-par.

Other AHS scores were freshman Matt Ross in ninth at 148 (73-75), junior Steve Sorenson in 10th at 149 (71-78), junior Sam Weber in 21st at 152 (76-76) and senior Clayton Jones in 53rd at 163 (81-82)
