Bulldog Teams are Headed to State Golf

By Jim Woy

For the first time in several years, the Butte High Bulldogs are sending their full Boys and Girls golf teams to Helena for the State AA Golf championships beginning Thursday September 29 at Green Meadows Country Club. The shotgun start begins at 10am on Thursday and Friday.

Coach Erik Mankins said, “both teams achieved a lofty goal to qualify all 10 golfers (5 boys and 5 girls) for the State Tournament.” Mankins emphasized “the importance of following the script and executing the plan set forth.” He and Assistant Coach Cory Johnston are proud of the hard work put in by the young golfers.

Coach Mankins wanted to send a special shout out to the Butte Country Club, Highland View Course and Fairmont Hot Springs for their generous contribution of allowing the kids to use the golf courses free of charge. He also wanted to thank the golf pros at the courses, parents and grandparents who have supported the teams. It takes a village to achieve the success the Bulldogs are having in 2022.   

Butte High Girls

The girls team is led by Sophomore Dylan Bartolleti who finished 4th overall in the West. The Bulldog girls team includes Juniors Taylor Sullivan and Gussey Lean, Sophomore Chelsie Lyons and freshman Kate Deshaw.  The young Bulldogs finished fourth at the Divisional tournament and have shown improvement every round.

Butte High Boys
