As the sole fall sport to play last week from Browning High School, the girls golf team took to the links in Butte last weekend to complete their season in state competition. Jill Sure Chief kept her top spot among Browning golfers to score 197 strokes in two days of play, coming in 16th overall among Class A schools. She was followed by Brittney Wagner at 238 strokes which, taking into account tie scores, landed her into 35th while Brooke Blue posted 241 strokes, earning a 37th place finish.
“I was super proud of all three of these young ladies,” Coach Brian Harrell said. “The greens were very fast, and most were elevated greens which made it very challenging. Jill wrapped up a stellar high school career and represented Browning High School and the Blackfeet Tribe in very fine fashion. Brittney played very consistent for the second year in a row at the state tournament, and I look forward to how well she can do next year with a normal summer for practice. Brooke showed incredible composure and competitiveness for a freshman. She has a very bright future in golf and is only going to get better and better over the next three years.”
With Sure Chief on her way to graduation in 2021, the coach says he considers her future to be bright.
“I am quite sure that Jill will continue to play golf at the collegiate level,” Coach Harrell said. “We are now going to get busy to find the best fit for that, but I’m confident that she will have choices. Her hard work over the last four years will definitely pay off.”
