Jefferson makes history by winning the Monroe County Golf Championship

Technology in golf has made great strides in recent years.

High school coaches can now sit in the club and track their individual players and team results hole by hole.

That came in handy Anne Maitland of Jefferson 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 had won it before, but I wasn’t sure until I looked at the trophy now,” Maitland said as her girls celebrated their title by standing individually with the trophy. “There are a lot of Bedford and Monroe out there, but this is Jefferson’s first.”

Jefferson put Callie Calvin on batting position on the third green during the Monroe County Girls' Golf Championships Friday in Green Meadows.

It was a great moment for Jefferson Golf.

“This is huge, especially since Jefferson isn’t always the greatest,” Maitland said. “But these girls are between the ages of 30 and 2 (in doubles matches) for the past two years.”

It wasn’t easy.

Jefferson never drove until the last three holes at Green Meadows Golf Course.

“It was very close,” Maitland said. “St. Mary (Catholic Centre) was driving most of the day, then she was Bedford. I was finally sweating out waiting for the last girl from Bedford to finish.”
