The Aspen High School girls golf team is on a roll.

Playing again in winds gusting over 50 mph, the Skiers won again.

They topped the field at the annual Montrose Invitational at Cobble Creek.

“Both scramble and stroke play formats were played over a very tough test of golf,” said Aspen head coach Don Buchholz.

The Aspen scramble team of Mae Sharaf, Katy Miller and Zoe Guthrie took top honors with a 1-over par 73 to lead the second-place finisher by eight strokes.”

“With three birdies, four bogies and the rest pars, our girls took yet another first-place finish home,” Buchholz said. “They finished strong and dominated the field. I’m very proud of their performance in very tough conditions.”

On the stroke-play side, the Aspen Skiers team of Dolores Sharaf, Nikki Blizzard, Julia Fahy and Katherine Doherty finished fourth out of 10 teams with a team score of 321.

Montrose won with a 296.

Dolores High School was second at 311, led by medalist Kiselya Plewe, who shot a tournament-low 81.

Third place went to Eagle Valley High School with a 313.
