On Oct. 17, the girls varsity golf team placed 11th at states. To qualify for states, a team must place in the top three in their regionals. Leading up to the tournament, the team had an 8-0 record and placed second during their regionals at Heather Highlands Golf Club in Holly.

Girls golf states is a two-day 18-hole round in Battle Creek. Seniors Caelin Micks, Elizabeth Gallagher and Olivia Benoit as well as sophomore Sammy Karwowicz and freshman Meghan Gallagher played for North and helped tie with South Lyon East High School with 750 points.

“I think our outcome was good. I think we could have always done better, but we were clearly not expected to win states, we just wanted to place as high as we could,” Micks said. “Our coaches told us to come into it, have fun, shoot as best as you can … but they knew, it wasn’t about winning, but shooting your personal best that day well, two days.”

Senior captain Elizabeth Gallagher tied with her younger sister, Meghan Gallagher, for top individual scorer at North. Both ended the two-day tournament with 176 points, with Elizabeth scoring 88 each day, and Meghan scoring 90 the first day and 86 the second.

“I love it, I mean good for her. I mean there’s definitely some family competition in there, but she’s got three years left and I hope she can do better next year,” Elizabeth said.

Elizabeth feels that despite the harsh weather over the two days, the team did well and should be able to continue their success next season.

“It was hard, the weather was terrible, it was freezing cold and playing in freezing cold golf weather is the worst because you can’t wear a lot of stuff, but then you’re freezing. But it was good, it was really fun,” Elizabeth said. “We have a couple of good girls who are underclassmen right now, and hopefully a couple coming in that are really good, and they should have a good chance (at states next year).”
