The following are excerpts from an article originally published in the Chestnut Hill Local. Read the full article here >>

The Mount's golf team won the 2019 PIAA Triple-A state team championship!

The Mount rose from a third-place finish in 2018 to champion this year by putting up a three-player score of 241 strokes.

Senior Olivia Wirsching led the effort with a five-over-par score of 77. Junior Clare Gimpel scored 80 and and sophomore Caroline Gola scored 84.

Gimpel’s older sister, Emily, played on the Mount’s first two state championship teams as a freshman in 2006 and a sophomore the following year. The Magic captured the title again in 2013, and last week’s win allowed the Mount to join Pittsburgh’s Shady Side Academy as the only four-time winners of the PIAA championship.

The other participants for the team at last week’s tourney were junior Sofia Gambone (94) and sophomore Nora Blatney (105).
