Against the backdrop of a perfect fall day in central Kansas, the SM East girls golf team capped off a season of excellence with its first 6A team title in four years.

On the strength of top ten performances from four golfers, the Lancers easily took first place in the team standings, beating second place finisher and defending state champ Mill Valley by 36 strokes.

Junior Quincy Helper had the best outing on the Carey Park Golf Course over two rounds, finishing at 163 strokes and fifth place in the individual standings. Sophomore Tess Roman was seventh overall at 167 strokes, and was followed by junior Megan Stopperan at 173 strokes in eighth place, and junior Hope Robinett at 174 strokes in ninth place. The top four finishers on a team make up the team score.
