Mullen included, recent in-state schoolgirl golf had been playing an uphill par-5, considering 2019’s 2nd round of the Class 4A final suddenly canceled by snow and the near-complete loss of 2020 (COVID-19). So the latest female championship on local record (the past June 21-22) was welcomed with additional enthusiasm – and the Mustangs fared well. They finished third in the team chase (behind Discovery Canyon and Windsor). And Sofia Choi, who was runner-up in 2019 as a freshman, eagled her final hole for a 1-under-par 71 at CommonGround G.C. In 2022, the Mustangs began with two dozen hopefuls for a regular season largely in the 5A-based Centennial League that will lead to 4A Region 4 at host Montrose along with Aurora Central, Battle Mountain, Central (G.J.) Conifer, Eagle Valley, Evergreen, Gateway, Glenwood Springs, Golden, Pomona, Rifle, Palisade, Steamboat Springs, Vista PEAK Prep, and Wheat Ridge. The 4A Championship will be May 31-June 1 at Tiara Rado G.C., Grand Junction.
