The Kossuth High School girls golf program continues to improve.

Playing in just their fourth season, Kossuth recorded its highest finish at the State Tournament, finishing third at the Class I event at Clear Creek Country Club.

St. Aloyoius claimed its second straight crown with a two-day total of 318. Our Lady Academy was second at 351, with Kossuth third at 406.

Kossuth finished fifth in 2013 with a 427. The Lady Aggies improved by 14 strokes last season, and finished just two shots out of fourth place.

Kossuth bettered last season’s showing by seven strokes, which came in handy as the Lady Aggies claimed their first Top 3 showing by edging out Cathedral by one shot.

Alyssa Trulove paced Kossuth with a two-day total of 199. The lone holdover from the 2012 team, Trulove has improved each tournament going from a 221 in 2012 to a team-best 202 last year.

Shelbi Barnes turned in a 207, a four-stroke improvement from last season’s match at Canton Country Club.

Shelby Phillips rounded out the trio with a 228, 34 shots better than last season’s debut.

Walnut finished fifth at 426, while Sumrall rounded out the team field with a 432.

Ten teams took part in last year’s annual event.

• At the Class II Tournament at Kirkwood National Golf Course in Holly Springs, New Hope edged out host New Albany 176-179 to claim the team title.

Play was limited due to Monday’s thunderstorm that rocked North Mississippi.

Corinth’s Courtney Craven, playing as an individual, finished with a 95.
