It was the first title for the freshman, Chen, who finished fourth in 2022, and her score this year was a new Nassau County girls record.

Dylan Reyes added an 87 and James Fabikrant shot a 90 for Port Washington, which finished the season at 10-0. Fabrikant and Karty qualified for the state championships June 4 and June 5 at Mark Twain Golf Course in Elmira, which were not over at press time.

In in the individual boys competition, the Wheatley School’s Joseph Dolezal captured the Nassau County individual championship with a terrific final round on Bethpage Red.

He shot a one-under par 69 on Bethpage Red for a two-round total of 141 and a two-stroke victory over Massapequa’s Will Welling and Port Washington’s Bryce Karty. Dolezal opened with a 72 on the Blue Course on Tuesday.
