When it comes to accomplishments on the girls Class AA golf level, Central Valley's Macky Fouse has simply been outstanding.

The Seton Hall recruit added to her growing list of accomplishments on Tuesday with the PIAA Class AA Individual State Championship with an 8-over-par round of 152. The senior had rounds of 75 and 77 en route to the state title. Placing second was Seton-LaSalle junior Joey Walz with a 16-over-par total of 160.

Fouse's teammate, sophomore Maddy McDanel served notice that she and Walz likely will be two of the top competitors in the Class AA ranks in 2014 as she placed third, one stroke behind Walz.

A third Central Valley golfer, senior Marissa Sudar, placed 10th with a 32-over-par total of 176.

Girls Golf: Expect Central Valley to move up to Class AAA

Written by Joe Koch on .

Several years ago, Penn-Trafford High's girls golf team made the move from Division II to Division I and remained in the larger classification when the PIAA changed the classification from the division alignment to the classification alignment that is evident in most of the sports contested in Pennsylvania.

Central Valley girls golf coach Larry Milosh said a similar move could be expected from his school, particularly since the Warriors haven't lost a match in four years against Class AA competition.

Milosh said the school won't have a choice if the school's enrollment increases. But he envisions making a move similar to what Aliquippa is doing with football where the school ia playing against Class AA competition with a Class A enrollment.
