Jefferson makes history by winning the Monroe County Golf Championship

Golf technology has made great strides in recent years.

High school coaches can now sit at the clubhouse and track their individual players and team scores hole by hole.

This came in handy for Jefferson’s Ann Maitland as her team made school history on Friday.

The Bears came from behind to win the Monroe County Championship for the first time.

“I didn’t think we’d won before, but I wasn’t sure until I looked at the trophy just now,” Maitland said as his girls celebrated the title by posing individually with the trophy. “There’s a lot of Bedford and Monroe there, but this is a first for Jefferson.”

It was a big moment for Jefferson golf.

“That’s huge, especially since Jefferson isn’t always the best,” Maitland said. “But these girls are 30-2 (in doubles) for the last two years.”

It was not easy.

Jefferson never led until the final three holes at Green Meadows Golf Course.

“It was very close,” Maitland said. “S. Mary (Central Catholic) was leading most of the day, then it was Bedford. I was sweating at the end waiting for the last girl in Bedford to finish.”
