U-High brought home the 10th State Championship in the history of the program in dramatic comeback fashion. Starting the day 9 shots behind, the Pioneers cut the lead to 4 after the front 9. They continued to chip away on the back 9 finishing off the comeback to win the state championship by 6 shots over Marmion Academy.

U-High saved their best for last. Steady play by Dallas Koth posting his second consecutive 74, Tony Palumbo making 9 straight pars to finish the tournament, Alex Kullman righting the ship to par the last 4 holes, and senior Dylan Panizo capping his career with a solid 76.

Cheered on by parents, family and friends U-High finished off a stellar year by accomplishing the goal they set 365 days earlier. Coming off a disappointing 10th place finish in 2015, the boys were not going to let anything stand in their way of reaching the top of the mountain.

Congrats boys U earned it! State Champions!

Dallas Koth 148 (74/74) 2nd Place Individual All-State

Dylan Panizo 159 (83/76)
Alex Kullman 162 (80/82)
