Capping off an undefeated season, the Girls' Varsity Golf Team took home the 2018 NJSIAA Tournament of Champions trophy on May 29, their second consecutive team appearance at the state-wide event and first outright win since 2004 (last year they finished second). What's more, they finished with a score of 299, a full 16 strokes ahead of runner-up Ridge.

Zara Jacob '21 (79) and Ashley Lu '20 (80) finished 14th and 17th, respectively.

"I have been waiting for this team to [win the title] since I was a freshman, and seeing the hard work and success of our season really inspired me and all the other girls," Ami told reporter Lou Monaco.

Rob Mauer, who is in his fourth year as Head Coach of the Team, was as proud as his players. "We had a tremendous year—every member on the team played in at least one match to contribute to our perfect season of 17-0. The whole team really worked well together, and the girls are very excited to have won this state tournament. It's a great send-off for our seniors!" he said. Moreover, the team managed to have the lowest 9-hole score of any team in the state this year. Ami holds the lowest 9-hole individual score (29).
