Many of the same faces that helped the Salem Lady Wildcats golf team to a 13th place finish at the 1989 state meet and a tenth place mark at the 1990 state meet took the program to even greater heights in 1991.

The program won its first ever regional and sectional championship and improved its state meet finish to ninth under the direction of Coach Bill Morgan.

Salem lost just once during the regular season and compiled a 39-1 record going into the state meet before it settled for the final mark of 44-9.  During the regular season the Lady Wildcats won the Benton Invitational by 15 strokes over Carterville, an event where Julie Morgan and Anne Clark tied for Medalist honors. The Lady Wildcats were even more dominant when they won the Olney Invitational, as they had a 27- stroke margin of victory over second place Benton.  Amber Boyles was the individual medalist in that tournament.

Salem’s domination carried over into the postseason, as they shot a 369 and won the Murphysboro Regional by 32 strokes over Mt. Vernon. Clark led the way with a fourth place finish with an 88 followed by Leslie Horn at 88, Julie Morgan at 91, Jane Morgan at 102, Boyles at 105 and Sarah Cosby at 111.

Salem and Mt. Vernon went 1-2 again at the Edwardsville Sectional, as the Lady Wildcats lowered their score to 356 and won by 20 strokes. Clark led the way with an 83 and a seventh place finish. Next was Julie Morgan with 89, Boyles with 91, Horn at 93, Cosby at 98 and Jane Morgan at 108.

After they shot 856 at the 1989 state meet and an 832 at the 1990 event, the Lady Wildcats improved their score to 825 at the 1991 finals. As she did throughout the postseason, Clark led the way with a 24th place finish at 187. Julie Morgan followed with 204, Horn at 212, Boyles at 222, Cosby at 229 and Jane Morgan at 246.
