Northview junior golfer Brittany Cheek matched the school record for highest individual finish for a golfer at the Indiana High School Golf Championships on Saturday with her 16th place finish.

Cheek matched her Friday score of 83 on Saturday to finish with a 166 for the tournament that matched current Northview senior Amy Thiemann's place in last year's final.

Warsaw freshman Emily Johnson shot a four-over 76 on Saturday to give her a two round total of 148 and the tournament title over North Decatur's Angela Gauck who carded a 152.
