Mequon - Homestead senior Jordan Niebrugge made up for years of disappointment by winning the WIAA state golf championship at University Ridge in Verona on Tuesday with a record-tying 36-hole score of 136.
According to the WIAA website, Niebrugge shot a six-under par 18-hole score of 66 Tuesday and his overall tally was four shots clear of Stoughton's Henry Klongland and Kaukauna's Willie Wittmann (each 140).
Niebrugge also tied the individual state meet record held by former Highlanders state champion Andy Hansen, who originally set the mark in 2006.
