Ojala NHIAA girls' golf champion

SALEM — Jocelyn Ojala needed to be every bit as good as she was Saturday.

The senior from Mascenic High of New Ipswich shot an even-par round 71 at Campbell’s Scottish Highlands to edge out senior Colette Schmidt of Lebanon by two strokes and win the 2012 NHIAA Girls State golf tournament.

The runner-up finish was Schmidt’s second in as many years; she lost to Faith Jenkins of St. Thomas Aquinas of Dover in a playoff last year.

Ojala tied for third last year, but she was 13 strokes better this time around on the same Scottish Highlands course as scores dipped from a year ago. Last year’s winning score was 81; four players matched or bettered that Saturday, including Ojala, Schmidt (73), sophomore Kaitlyn Lutinski of Pinkerton Academy of Derry (76) and Sara Feith of St. Thomas (81).

Indiana Jones of Prospect Mountain of Alton (84) was fifth, followed by Morgan Delapena of Nashua North (85) and Chelsea Sedlar of Bishop Guertin of Nashua (85).
