The Cooper girls golf team won its second consecutive Region 7 championship by doing what worked the first time.

Just like last year, Cooper golfers posted the top four scores on the leader board in Monday’s 18-hole tournament at Lassing Pointe and finished on top in the team standings with a 322 total that was 33 strokes better than runner-up Notre Dame.

Cooper freshman Reagan Ramage took home the medalist trophy once again by shooting 3-over-par 74.  The teammates listed behind her on the leader board were sophomores Eva Maley (79) and Kendall Brissey (84) and senior Jalena Hardcorn (85). The team’s fifth golfer was Skylar Anderson (94).

The Jaguars will make a return trip to the 36-hole state tournament to be played Tuesday and Wednesday at Bowling Green Country Club along with seven individual state qualifiers from Region 7.

Notre Dame senior Clare Hooper, who tied for fourth place in the region tournament with an 85, heads the list of state qualifiers.

The others who earned berths in the state tournament are Didi Jiradamkerng, Hannah Rice and Natalie Lovell of Notre Dame, Brooklyn Callioni of Villa Madonna, Grace Ramey of Beechwood and Jenna Day of Simon Kenton.

At last year’s state tournament, Cooper placed fifth in the team standings and Ramage tied for 21st in the individual standings.
