Medford High School senior Maxine Harney has become the first female to win the Greater Boston League Golf Championship in the twelve year history of the tournament.
Maxine had a “stellar” score of 78, beating the nearest competitor by six shots, according to Head Coach Ray Dyer.
“The tournament, held at Indian Ridge Country Club, is a tough test for anyone but Maxine was phenomenal,” said Coach Dyer. “She competes day in and day out against both girls and boys and I can not think of a harder working student athlete than her. Congratulations, Maxine!”
Golf runs in Harney’s family, with both her father and grandfather well-known and accomplished in the sport, according to a story published in the Boston Globe Tuesday.
Harney’s team is 7-0 in the GBL and 8-1 overall, said Dyer. The Mustangs are on the road against Cambridge, Somerville, and Malden Catholic to finish up the season.
