Thompson, Laplume Win NE Interscholastic
It was a good day for Maine high schoolers yesterday, as Logan Thompson and Jordan Laplume both won the New England Interscholastic Championship at Bretwood CC in Keene, NH. The event featured the top finishers from all six New England states' high school championships last fall in an 18-hole championship.
Thompson (Mattanawcook Academy) fired a blistering 68 in a round that included six birdies to win the boys' division by one stroke. Thompson is coming off a decorated high school career in which he won the Class C state title all four years. He will enroll at Methodist University in the fall to continue in golf.
Laplume (Thorton Academy) carded a 73 to win the girls' division by one stroke. The recently-named MSGA scholar will head to Merrimack College in the fall.
Congrats to the winners and all the Mainers that competed in yesterday's event.
