TERRE HAUTE — Northview is the Western Indiana Conference girls golf champion for the second year in a row.

The Knights shot a season-best 368 to claim the championship in action on Saturday at Idle Creek.

South Vermillion took second with a 393 score and Owen Valley was third with 408. Following the leaders were Edgewood 447, Sullivan 452, Brown County 515 and West Vigo 518.

Northview junior Keirsten Mikesell had the only score under 90, shooting 89 to take medalist honors. All five Northview players earned all-conference honors.

Jensen Swain and Karlie Atkinson of Northview were second and third with scores of 91 and 92, respectively, while Kristi Thomas of South Vermillion took fourth with 93.

Mikesell and Atkinson are the two players back from last year's team. Makenzie Mager, Faith Wells and Swain are the newcomers in the lineup.

“I am really proud of the girls … and for the new players making all-conference. I am extremely happy with our score. I told the girls we shot 361 in the sectional last year and and we had 368 today on a much tougher course,” said Northview coach Bob Treash.

The Knights are 9-1 in nine-hole matches, shooting 180 at Cascades on Thursday to defeat Edgewood.
