Mount Abe, Middlebury golfers excel at state open
ADDISON COUNTY — Two local high school golfers competing as independents at state championship meets last week recorded top-10 scores and qualified for further competition.
On Wednesday, Mount Abraham sophomore Carson Sanchez fired a 75 at the Country Club of Vermont in Waterbury at the boys’ Vermont championships, a score good enough to place him in the top 10 overall.
Within Division II, Sanchez’s score trailed only that of medalist Caleb Connerty of Rice, who shot a par 72.
By virtue of his performance on Wednesday, Sanchez qualified to compete for Vermont against New Hampshire in the upcoming Twin State golf competition.
On Tuesday, Middlebury junior Isabel Velez shot 96 at the Williston Country Club, good for second place in D-II behind Rice’s Madison Myers, who shot an 84, and for sixth place overall.
Velez qualified to compete in the upcoming New England championship tournament.
