Golfers improve at State, Salas finishes impressive high school career
September 21, 2023
The Wolves Golf team competed in Worland this past weekend in the 2023 3A State Golf Championship, seeing an impressive finish to Senior Isabell Salas's high school golf career as well as improvement among the team members.
Isabell Salas "battled hard" after a one-stroke lead on day one and came in at second place, according to Assistant Coach Danielle Salas.
"Isabell ended her high school career as the most decorated female golfer in the history of Green River High School Golf," Coach Salas explained.
Isabell is a four-time All Conference and All State Honoree, has the lowest average in girls team history with a high school career average of 74, is the only female golfer to post under-par rounds, and is a three-time invitee to the National High School Golf Championship, according to Coach Salas.
The other team members also worked hard at State, and nearly every one of the Wolves improved their scores from day one to day two.
Some of the most notable improvements for the boys team included Freshman Weston Green, who shot 14 strokes better on day two; Freshman Roman Brown, who shot eight strokes better; and Senior Tyler Castillon, who shot seven strokes better. The top finishers on the boys side were Sophomore Adam Robertson, tied for 31st, and Junior Kaleb Gunter, tied for 36th.
On the girls' side, Sophomore Mylie Mele also "pushed hard" to finish 11 strokes better than day one, according to Coach Salas. Mele ended up finishing 36th. Junior Molly Stanton shot four strokes better on day two to finish at 45th and had some of her longest drives to date.
"This season was successful in our book and we look forward to seeing continued growth throughout the next few seasons," Coach Salas said.
