The Superior High School girls golf team finished first at the Northwestern Invitational Friday afternoon at Hidden Greens Golf Course in Solon Springs.
The Spartans finished with a team score of 384, 11 strokes better than Hayward’s 395 and 36 better than Northwestern’s 420.
Superior’s Janelle Strewler and Cassie Berg were low golfers with 93s. Strewler was awarded medalist honors after a tiebreaker.
Superiors Allison Gotelaere also finished fifth at 95 while Northwestern’s Taylor Prior and Hayley Botten were seventh and eighth with scores of 98 and 99, respectively.
Also golfing for Northwestern were Yui Tabata with an 111 and Jordan and Nicolette Lindberg with 112s.
“We were happy to have Taylor back in action after missing Thursday’s meet in Barron due to illness,” NHS coach Stacy Burfield said. “She really adds a lot to our team in terms of playing ability and leadership.
“She and Hayley had a great front nine, but the back nine proved to be a little more challenging for nearly everyone.”
Other scores for Superior were Anne Tracy’s 103 and Abby Clemons’ 108.
“Superior shot amazingly well,” Burfield said. “Hidden Greens is a difficult course for girls golf, but Superior showed otherwise.
“The course was beautiful as ever and the girls took advantage.”
The Tigers host Barron at 4 p.m. Monday while Superior hosts Ladysmith and Chetek at 4:30 p.m. Monday.
