Seventeen year old Madison Corley became the youngest player to win the Vermont State Amateur Golf Championship on Thursday at Manchester Country Club.  She fired a final round of 73  to edge the charging Kristin Mahoney of Rutland by one stroke.  Kristin birdied two holes on the back nine to close the three-stroke gap to just one stroke going into the difficult 18th hole.  Kristin's approach came up short of the green while Madison flew her approach just over the pin leaving a difficult downhill chip from the rough.  She calmed chipped to within two feet and made the putt for the one-stroke victory.  Kristin fired a 72 which was the low round of the tournament.  Madison's rounds were 76-40-73 for a 189 total while Kristin's rounds were 79-39-72 for a 190 total.  


Defending champion Holly Reynolds of Copley fired a final round of 75 for a 193 total to finish in third place. Tiffany Maurycy of Williston was fourth at 199, Keely Levins of Rutland was fifth at 200, Jeanne Morrissey of Williston was sixth at 202.  Maureen Quinn of Lake St. Catherine fired a fine 77 to pull up into seventh place. Terry Boyce of Killington and Elizabeth Walker of Brattleboro were tied for eight at 208 and Patricia DeCaire of Quechee rounded out the top ten at 210.


Edith Hiller of Rutland was the low net winner at 178, two strokes better than fellow Rutland players Bonnie Heald and Allie Wolf.  Kathy Allbright of Green Mountain, Mary Jane Shomo of Rutland and junior Madison Myers of Vt. National were tied for 4th net at 182.  Janet Hayden of Williston, Dede Mahler of the CC of Vermont, Erika Politano of Green Mountain, and Cynthia Borck of Stowe were tied for seventh net at 183.


Madison Corley also won the Junior Trophy.  Rutland won the team Paquet Cup over Williston with a 602 total to Williston's 614.  The Allbright Ringer trophy went to Madison Corley with a ringer score of 67.
