Carissa Graft – 6A Medalist

 

By Jesse Dodson

 

Winning Medalist honors in the 6A Girls High School State Championship at TalonsCove Golf Course is impressive, but setting a state record in the process makes it that much better.

 

Bingham High School senior Carissa Graft saved her best-two rounds for the right occasion with a 65 in the first round and a 66 to back it up. A two-day total of 13-under provided a six-shot cushion over reining 6A State Champion and Utah Women’s State Amateur Champion Tess Blair, who happens to be a teammate as well.

 

“I’ve worked really hard for four years,” Graft said, “and being able to win as a senior is a great end to my high school career.”

 

Graft is committed to play for the Indiana Tech Women’s golf team and based on her performance at State, she’ll be riding a wave of momentum.

 

As for her summer plans, “I’m going to play about one tournament a week and continue working with my golf coach Ryan Holt to continue improving my game for college,” she explained.
