ALEXANDRIA — For the second straight season, the Alexandria girls golf program took home the MSHSL Class AAA state championship, its fifth in program history.
This championship effort was led by senior Cora Larson and junior Hannah Boraas who were named co-MVPs of the team.
“Hannah and Cora were named co-MVPs and their scoring averages were very similar all year long,” Alexandria head coach Tim Zupfer said. “They led the way.”
The Cardinals were section champions and conference champions and didn’t finish worse than a tie for first all season.
Larson finished with all-state honors and placed sixth individually at the state tournament. She also earned a spot on the all-state academic team as well. Boraas was a member of the all-state team as well.
Eighth-grader Ellie Sticha and freshman Rachel Bowen were named as the team’s most improved players.
“Those two players dropped their scoring average by 10 shots over 18 holes from last year to this year,” Zupfer said.
These four, along with junior Aisling O’Connor and senior Lauren Rebrovich were all named to the All-Central Lakes Conference team as well.
Senior Isabella Hagen and junior Teryn Jaworski also earned varsity letters this season.
