Richfield’s girls golf team has some work to do if it hopes to win a fifth straight 3A state title.

Morgan grabbed the Day 1 lead at Glendale Golf Course in Salt Lake City on Wednesday, shooting a 322 to take a seven-stroke lead on Richfield, which shot a 329.

Juan Diego sits close behind in third after shooting a 330.

Ellie DeMond lead the way for the Trojans, as she shot an even-par 72 and is the Day 1 leader with a three-stroke advantage over Juan Diego’s Cabria Walters.

The only other golfer to shoot in the 70s was Morgan’s Jailee Snow, who sits in third after shooting a 77.

Morgan’s other scoring golfers, Kia Christiansen and Camden Smith, shot an 86 and 87, respectively.

All five Richfield golfers finished inside the top 10 on Wednesday, with Charlotte Poulsen, Abbee Albrecht and Brielle Jolley all shooting 82.

Hallie Janes and Shelby Gardner were right behind with 83s.

To overtake Morgan in Thursday’s final round, Richfield will likely need a few of those golfers to shoot in the 70s to make up the seven-stroke deficit.
