It's a three-peat for the Oak Hill Academy golf team.

The boys fired a season-best 296 on the Frenchman's Bend Golf and Athletic Club in Monroe, La., to win their third straight MAIS Class 1A-2AA state championship.

The Raiders were best among eight teams who qualified for the state championship. Eight individuals also qualified for the finals but in addition to the team title, Oak Hill had the top three golfers.

Claiborne Academy finished second 13 strokes back at 309.

Seventh-grader Collins Trolio led the team and was the individual state champ with a 70. His brother, freshman Cohen Trolio, finished second at 72 and eighth-grader Wells Williams was third at 73. Chapman Suggs, the team's only senior, carded an 81 for the fourth team score. Team members Nic Flannagan and Carter Armstrong both shot 82.
