Three Forks golf team finishes 4th at state

The Three Forks High School Girls' Golf team ended their season in style at last week's Class B State Tournament in Shelby. The Wolves had two golfers earn All-State honors on their way to a fourth-place finish at the two-day tournament.

With scores of 92 and 88, Ari Judd ended a great 2023 campaign with a sixth-place finish, and Lydia Kluin tied for tenth after shooting a 95 and 96.

Head Coach Aaron Harkins said it was a great couple of days in Shelby for the team.

"After the first day, the team sat in fourth place, only two strokes back of third, with Ari Judd and Lydia Kluin both in the top ten after their rounds. There was about an hour-and-a-half lightning delay which led to the team being at the course for nearly 12 hours from our first tee time to our last girl in. A long tiring day for sure," said Harkins. "The second round on Wednesday came with some cooler weather but no delays, which was welcomed by all. The girls fought hard to try and get into the top three as a team, but we ended in a tie for fourth, with Ari and Lydia claiming All-State honors."

The Wolves had three golfers who were playing in their first state tournament.

Harkins said Paige Lien came through on the second day, lowering her first day total of 115 with a 112, adding Claire Van Vleet shot a 120 and 128.

Despite playing with a hand injury at Divisionals and State, Harkins said Kennedy Rogers had rounds of 126 and 128.

"We are really proud of all the golfers, girls and boys, their willingness to work hard and their improvement throughout the season. Best of luck to all the seniors who will graduate in just and few short weeks. Thanks for a great season," Harkins said.
