SENATE RESOLUTION


     MADAM PRESIDENT:

    I offer the following resolution and move its adoption:

    A SENATE RESOLUTION congratulating the Yorktown High School girls golf team on winning the 2012 State Championship.

    Whereas, In September of 2012, the Yorktown High School girls golf team clinched the 40th Annual IHSAA State Championship;

    Whereas, This victory marks the first non-volleyball state championship for a school in Delaware County in 10 years, and the first state championship for girls golf for Yorktown High School since 1976;

    Whereas, It is no surprise that the Yorktown golf team won the state championship. The team entered the season ranked number one, won the Delaware County Championship, Hoosier Heritage Conference Championship, IHSAA Sectional Championship, IHSAA Regional Championship, and finished the season with a perfect record of 20 wins and zero losses;

    Whereas, The pressure of being top-ranked never distracted the team. After the opening round, the Tigers held a two-stroke lead over their closest competitor. They extended their lead

during the second day of play, ultimately capturing the championship title with a 14 stroke lead;

    Whereas, Based on her outstanding individual play, Kennedy Windlan was recognized as a member of the Indiana High School Golf Coaches Association 2012 girls golf all state team;

    Whereas, The team asserted their dominance this season by clinching two other Championships as well - the Delaware County Championship and the Hoosier Heritage Conference Championship;

    Whereas, The Delaware County Athletics Association is the Delaware County league and consists of six schools in the county. The Yorktown golf team defeated the tournament competition, clinching their fourth straight Delaware County Championship;

    Whereas, The team also won the Hoosier Heritage Conference Championship, defeating seven other teams for their fourth straight Hoosier Heritage Conference title;

    Whereas, The team is grateful for the support of their school, friends, and family members, many of whom attended the State Championship to cheer on the team as they played; and

    Whereas, The 2012 Championship team, comprised of Seniors Amy Beckwith, Tara Clark, Ashley Sexton, and Kennedy Windlan; and Sophomores Morgan Clark and Rachel Johnson, had an outstanding season and we wish them continued success in the future: Therefore,


Be it resolved by the Senate of the
