Seabreeze sophomore Amelia Cobb finished third at the Class 2A state girls golf championship Nov. 12-13 at Mission Inn Resort in Howey-in-the-Hills and led the Sandcrabs to a fourth-place team finish.

Cobb had five birdies over two rounds to shoot 1-over par on consecutive days for a 73-73—146, two strokes in back of runner-up Alexandra Gazzoli of Matanzas (74-70—144).

Mainland's Loa Johannsson finished seventh with a 73-78—151.

In the boys' state tournament, Seabreeze's Brandon Godfrey tied for 12th place with a 79-79—158. Godfrey had the top finish among Volusia and Flagler county golfers. The Sandcrab boys finished 16th among state qualifiers.

The Seabreeze girls shot 342-335—677 to finish one stroke behind third-place team Archbishop McCarthy.

In addition to Cobb finishing third, Seabreeze's Hannah Ashton was 28th with an 83-84—167, and Riley Fletcher was 33rd with an 81-87—168.

The girls played at Mission Inn's Las Colinas Course, while the boys played on the El Campeon Course. 

Cobb's third-place finish was the highest in school history. The Sandcrabs, who have won the girls team runner-up trophy three times (1983, 1997 and 1998), have never produced a female individual champ or runner-up.
