Jun 10, 2022

Bishop Stang freshman and Dartmouth resident Bianca Ligotti finished in 19th place at the Massachusetts Girls Golf State Championship on Tuesday, June 7 at Eastward Ho! Country Club in Chatham, shooting a 93 to land inside the top 20 in the Commonwealth.

She earned her spot in the state tournament last week when she shot an 81 at the South Sectional Girls Golf Championships held at Falmouth Country Club, placing 4th in a field of 49 golfers.

Ligotti was a major contributor during the golf season for Bishop Stang — the Division 2 Massachusetts State Golf Champions — according to her coach, Thomas Kennedy.

“She loves to play competitive golf, and she plays the right way,” said Kennedy. “Her concentration and demeanor on the course are impressive, and she exemplifies good sportsmanship.”

Ligotti also qualified for the US Kids World Teen Championships at Pinehurst, North Carolina in July and won the Allendale Country Club’s Junior Club Girls Championship last fall.

She now participates in the United States Challenge Cup Series competing against the best junior golfers in New England, Kennedy said.

Kennedy added that Ligotti pairs her success on the golf course with an equally impressive academic record, having made the president’s list in her first year at Stang.

“She’s a great kid,” he said.
