The Falcons hoisted the gold trophy for the first time in program history after shooting 319 during the final round and, with a 36-hole total of 637, holding off Hamilton (Sussex) by seven strokes to top the Division 1 competition.

In the fall of 1972, Mary Hafeman would win the first WIAA state girls golf championship, shooting 92 in what was then an 18-hole event played at Winagamie Golf Course. Her West Bend East team finished second to Madison West and Linda (Stack) Hughes, who would become Hafeman's future college teammate and a lifelong friend. As the 50th WIAA state girls golf tournament begins today, both will be monitoring the activity with great interest.
