SALT LAKE CITY — With just one round left in her high school golf career, Skyline's Ashley Lam finished the only way she knew how: with a win.

The defending 5A state medalist shot 3-under-par 69 Tuesday to finish with a two-day total of 4-under 140 and help the Eagles to their second state championship in as many years on the silver course at Soldier Hollow in Midway.

Led by Lam, Skyline finished 24 strokes ahead of Timpview with a two-day total of 637. Salem Hills, Bonneville and Spanish Fork rounded out the top five.

The Westminster commit who finished in the top-five in each of the past three seasons was two strokes up on Timpview's Emma Lillywhite to start the day, and like the final pairing of an LPGA Tour major, the senior duo were paired together over the final 18 holes as both teams contended for a team title.

Lillywhite, who has signed with Weber State, birdied the par-5 ninth hole to make the turn at 1-under 35. But Lam was clutch down the stretch, parading the back nine with two birdies and an eagle on the par-5 118th to punctuate her second consecutive individual victory.

Salem Hills' Navy Hubbs finished third with a two-day total of 4-over 148, while Bonneville's Whitni Johnson (149) and Brighton's Catherine Cook (152) rounded out the top five.
