ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (KKCO) - Montrose senior Kala Keltz faced an uphill battle for round two of the 4A state golf championship, but it was nothing she couldn't handle.
Keltz started the day in fourth place after shooting a 76 on the first day of competition. In round two, she came out knowing she had to stay focused and do some damage, and she did just that.
After putting up four birdies in the first eight holes, she went on to finish with a 70, the tournament's lone round under par, and a 146 overall, earning her the class 4A girls' golf state title.
"I couldn't have asked for a better group of my family and friends following me," said Kelta, "and my coaches are great. They help me throughout the round, and I'm just so blessed to have my family behind me the whole way."
