WEST JORDAN — Richfield's Piper Harris held off Morgan's Ellie DeMond in a playoff to earn medalist honors and help the Wildcats cruise to the Class 3A state title at Mountain View golf course in West Jordan.
Harris and DeMond each shot 8-over 152 to finish tied for first after the 36-hole state meet. The Richfield senior shot the low round of the day at 75 to overturn the first day lead from DeMond, who took medalist honors at last year's Utah Section PGA state meet after the Utah High School Activities Association cut the season short due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Richfield junior Becca Poulsen finished third at 12-over 156, while teammates Gwen Stubbs (167), Brinley Jolley (178) and Brielle Jolley (179) all added top-11 performances for the Wildcats, who clinched their third consecutive title and fifth as a team.
Judge Memorial's Ava Isaac (164) and San Juan's Isabel Young (164) rounded out the top five.
Morgan finished 33 strokes behind Richfield for second, followed by Judge Memorial (717), Union (755) and Juan (814).
