Girls Golf Team
2004 & 2005 State Champions




  

In only its second year as a varsity sport, The Danbury High School Girls Golf team won both the FCIAC and the State Championships.  From 1998 to 2002, the girls’ golf team started as a club team with two interested players and volunteer coaches.  In 2003, their first year as a varsity sport, they finished 8-6, ranked fifth in the state.  But the following two years ended with FCIAC and State Championships, 2018 Danbury High Hall of Fame inductees, 2004 and 2005 Girls’ Golf Teams.

In 2004, Danbury High won the State Championship by one stroke, 391 over Mercy High School of Middletown.  The week before, Danbury had won their first FCIAC championship at Richter Park.  The state championship was played at the difficult Blue Fox Run golf course in Avon.  Kelly Kronen shot a sizzling 79, Jen Tierney  a 92, Stacy Baradit a 103, and Alex long a 117 to give Danbury the exciting one stroke victory. Nicole Najam was also a varsity letter winner for the 2004 State Champions.

In 2005, The Danbury Girl’s Golf team was no longer considered underdogs, returning four key varsity players from the 2004 FCIAC and State championships.  In a driving rain and wind-swept Brownson Country Club course in Shelton, the Hatters won their second straight FCIAC championship by twelve strokes over Trumbull High School.  The 2005 State Championship was once again held at Blue Fox Run in Avon.  The Hatters went on to win their second consecutive State Championship.  Varsity players from the 2005 championships were the number one and two players, Kelly Kronen and Jen Tierney along with Stacey Baradit, Heather Gardner, Alex Long, and Megan Corbett.

The only coach for the Danbury High Girl’s Golf team is Kathy Boucher.  As of 2018, the record for all her teams is 129 wins, 96 losses and 4 ties. In 2005, Coach Boucher was FCIAC Coach of the Year, 2009 Connecticut Girls Golf Coach of the Year and the FCIAC Coach of Excellence in 2016.  In 2018, Coach Boucher was a National Finalist for Girls Golf Coach of the Year.
