Corner Canyon High senior Alyssa Meadows, who was an All-State golfer the last two seasons, is back to lead the Chargers after a second-place finish at the 6A state championship last spring. 

“Alyssa has been on our team for four years and is a huge asset to our team,” said coach Alexis Gagon, who is in her fifth year as head coach and seventh with the program.

Gagon said junior Rylee Reinbold and sophomores Ashlyn Cline and Mylie Matthews will also be key contributors on the Chargers squad this year. “They all competed at state last year, and we are excited to see what they will accomplish this season,” she said. 

Also on the 2024 CCHS team are junior Becca Rogness; sophomores Allie Wahlquist, Sophie Tripp, Charli Short, Meredith Laitinen, Kate Broadbent, Kelley Dunn and Lily Fullmer; and freshmen Charlote Archer and Samantha Rogness.

“I am really excited about this team! We have crazy potential where the sky really is the limit,” Gagon said. “We hope to have fun and continue improving throughout the season.”

In its first tournament this season at Fore Lakes March 14, Corner Canyon finished second to Bingham by three strokes.

“The girls played so well,” Gagon said. “It was the perfect way to start the season.”

At Glenmoor March 20, Meadows shot a 78, tying for medalist honors, in leading the Chargers to a first-place finish as a team. Corner Canyon had a 348 team score to defeat the Miners by two strokes.

At the Ridge March 21, Meadows had a round of two-under 70 to win medalist honors outright, helping the squad to shoot a 331, two strokes ahead of Bingham.

“The girls all played great,” Gagon said. “I am very proud of this team and how much they have already improved in a short amount of time.”

The CCHS team is also scheduled to play in tournaments at TalonsCove April 10, Mountain View April 17, River Oaks April 18, Meadowbrook April 24, Sleepy Ridge April 29, Lakeside April 30 and Schneiter’s Bluff May 6 before the 6A state tournament May 20-21 at Soldier Hollow. λ
