Grillo, who will attend Boston College next fall, tied for fourth at the CIAC girls golf championship with a six-over-par 80. She was a medalist 13 times this spring and qualified for her fourth straight New England tournament. She declined her invitation this year since it was the same day as Avon High’s graduation.
