Madason Stevenson finished up her Northview golf career at the IHSAA State Golf Championships with a round of 96 for the Knights.

Competing in the IHSAA Girls Golf Championship on Friday, the Northview Knights didn't quite finish the way they would have liked, placing 20th in the 21 team field with a team score of 382.

Northview struggled on the opening hole of their round, teeing off on hole No. 10 which features water in the path, no Northview golfer scored better than a seven on the hole.

Millie Akers had the best score for the Knights, shooting a 41 on the front nine to finish with an 88.

Sophomore Mary Beth Tribble also got off to a tough start on No. 10 with a seven and followed that with another seven, but settled in for the rest of her round except for some difficulties on No. 6. She would finish with a round of 93 after coming home with a 45 on the front nine.

Senior Jenae Huffman, making her state championship debut, carded a round of 96 that included a birdie on No. 8. After being an alternate the past couple of years, Huffman shot a front nine score of 46 to continue the Knights' strong play on the first holes.

Madison Kirchner, who got off to a disastrous start on No. 10 but rounded out very well for a 46 on the front as part of a score of 105.

Madason Stevenson shot a 106 for the Knights in her final high school match.

Northview posted a team score of 187 on the back nine after teeing off early in the morning under sunny, but cool conditions. However, the team warmed up a bit, as did the weather, coming home in 175.

So despite not playing quite as well as they had hoped in the final match of the season, the year was another spectacular one for the program.

The Knights won their fourth sectional in the past six years and placed second in the regional while winning every conference match once again as each golfer earned All-WIC status.

Linton standout Rachel Pruett began her day on the front nine and shot a 42, but ended her round with a seven on No. 18, taking a two stroke penalty when her ball moved on the fairway and she did not replace it. A one stroke penalty would have been assessed if she would have returned the ball to its original spot. Pruett did not make the individual cut for the first day as a 77 was needed to move on to Saturday competition.
