Alamo Heights Girls’ Golf Team Wins Third State Championship in Four Years, Securing Elite Status

Alamo Heights girls’ golf team celebrates emotional victory with back-to-back state championships.

The Alamo Heights girls’ golf team has won the UIL 5A state championship for the third time in four years. The Mules secured the title by four strokes, finishing with a total score of 601 over two days of competition at Legacy Hills Golf Club on Tuesday. Julia Vollmer, a commit to Abilena Christian University, led the team with a two-over-par 146 and now holds three state championships within the Mules program.

Vollmer shared that being in the last group on the 18th hole each year and receiving hugs from her teammates has created lasting memories for her. The victory was emotional for Vollmer and her teammates, with tears of joy and bittersweet feelings as they celebrated their success but also faced the reality of parting ways as seniors.

Kat Salisbury, a commit to the University of St. Andrews, expressed the overwhelming emotions of the win, highlighting the fulfillment of achieving their goal and the bond shared among teammates. Alamo Heights previously won the state title in 2021, 2023, and now 2024, with a runner-up finish in 2022 by just one stroke.

Head coach Brent McCuiston praised the team’s accomplishment, noting that their third state championship places them among the elite in girls’ high school golf. Looking ahead, McCuiston expressed hope for continued success in future seasons. For more on this story and other sports coverage, visit our Big Game Coverage page.
