Lancaster’s Chelsea Dantonio earned a spot on the All-Federation girls golf all-star team by finishing in the top four of the New York State Federation Girls Golf Championship at The College Golf Course at Delhi.

Dantonio, a sophomore, finished fourth overall after completing the two-day event with a two-over-par 74. She finished with a 78-74-152, nine strokes behind the overall champion Christine Schmitt of Our Lady of Mercy, who was the only golfer in the field to finish under par.

Sacred Heart’s Victoria Parker finished ninth with a 157 after a final round 83. Teammate Emily Connors finished tied for 15th with a 162. Depew’s Sarah Godfrey-Singleton and Southwestern’s Marissa Del Monaco each finished tied for 22nd in the 80-golfer field with 165s.

This was the first year representatives from championship Catholic High Schools participated in the state federation tournament.

As a team, the nine-person Section VI team finished sixth with 1,218, 100 strokes behind champion Section V. The Catholic team, consisting of Buffalo’s Sacred Heart as well as Long Island’s Sacred Heart and Notre Dame Academy of Staten Island, didn’t record a team score because it didn’t have enough entrants.
