GOSHEN — It was a runaway Tuesday in the 18-hole SBAAC Girls Golf Championship tournament at Eagles Nest Golf Course.

Gabby Woods led Clinton-Massie to a second consecutive championship with a league-best 73 at Eagles Nest.

The Lady Falcons finished with 366 while runnerup Clermont Northeastern had 390. Wilmington finished third with 410. Blanchester was sixth and East Clinton eighth.

“Winning league was a goal of ours this year,” CM coach Tim McGraw said. “It is hard to win one league title let alone back-to-back. Going in to today, I just wanted the girls to play relaxed and have fun, and they did. I couldn’t be more proud of this group of girls.”

Woods was nine shots ahead of Wilmington’s Lilly Middleton and CNE’s Hailey Stegemann in the 18-hole event.

“Gabby has played great all year and … the other girls just stepped up each night,” said McGraw.”

CM’s Taylor Anderson had an 87 Tuesday and was fourth in the tournament.

“Taylor played great,” said McGraw. “I knew she was capable of putting together a full 18 holes.”

Ashlin Benne was the top Blanchester golfer with a 97. Gretchen Boggs led East Clinton.

In the final individual standings, Middleton was runnerup to Woods with a 282 total. She’ll likely be the league favorite next season as Woods graduates.
