The North Country Union High School girls golf team took first place at the ten-team tournament held at the Country Club of Barre. The NC girls outscored their closest competition by ten strokes at this tournament, which was their opening round of the season.

The travel team for this tournament consisted of captains Taylor LaBlanc and Katie Goulet, who was medalist, Lindsey Brownfield, and Carley Giroux who had the second best score for the team. Also on the team this year are sophomores Dehlia Wright and Alexis Domingue.

Katie said she was “a bit surprised to finally have a good day to play, and it is great to be out.” Taylor found the course challenging but “overall a good day — bad driver but my short game saved me.”

Turning in a respectable score was Lindsey Brownfield who outscored over half of the field. — submitted by NC girls golf coach Brian Hampton.
