2020 Amateur Championship
Andrea Brown Wins Vermont Amateur Championship
It was a wild finish that left competitors and spectators spellbound. Tuesday’s round was rained out, and the final round was played Wednesday under mostly sunny skies with plenty of suspense. At the end of the round, there was a tie at 158 between Andrea Brown of Lakeside and Julia Dapron of the Dorset Field Club. Five play-off holes later, Andrea Brown took the hole and the 2020 Amateur trophy. Carson Laderoute of Burlington Country Club was third, only four shots off of the lead. In fourth place and shooting 164 was Mia Politano, who also took home the Junior Trophy. The second place Junior was Jillian Miles with 179.
The Paquet Cup was won by a one-stroke margin. The ladies of Williston Golf Club beat out the Dorset Field Club team, 513 to 514.
