"I'm very proud of them," Northview coach Josh Trout said. "It was their lowest round of the year by 15 strokes it came at a good time. We had two girls shoot their lowest round of the year and with Mary Beth being low medalist, I'm very proud of the performance we gave today."
Tribble scored a 79 to lead the Knights, with Olivia Oehler and Mandy Thomlinson scoring 89 and 92 respectively. Sunny Shaw shot a 101 and Savanah Pursell carded a 108.
Even with his team's impressive performance Saturday, Trout sees room for improvement but liked what he saw.
"We really need to get that fourth score, that's what really hurt us today," Trout commented. "If we could have added another score in the low to mid 90's that would really have helped out. Other than that our scores are what we need and what I expect out of them."
Down the stretch, the Knights continued their strong play as the South Putnam Eagles were charging on the back nine. Northview would eventually hold off the challenge to finish eight strokes in front of the Eagles.
With his team advancing to regional play, Trout will make sure his team is prepared for the challenge.
"We're going to spend a little time over at Hulman Links this week working on our short game. We'll try to get as much practice time as possible in before next week," Trout commented.
Northview will travel to Martinsville's Foxcliff at 10 a.m. Saturday.
