BRAZIL -- Saturday was a day of firsts for the Northview girls' golf team.

For the first time this season, they shot a combined score of 349, topping their season-best by 25 strokes according to head coach Trout and two golfers posted career best's.

Olivia Oehler fired off a 79 tying for third-place for best overall golfer and Mandy Thomlinson posted an 83.

"That was the first time that Olivia has ever been in the 70s and it couldn't have come at a better time for her," Trout said. "Mandy's 83 was a career best for her also."

Oehler was nearly speechless after the match.

"I don't know really what to say other than I am really happy right now," Oehler said.

One thing that Oehler did say is that she shot better on the back nine Saturday which usually doesn't happen.

"Yeah, for some reason I shot better on the back nine and I don't know if it's because we've played it more this year or what," Oehler said. "It's usually harder because it's longer than the front, but I shot better on it and it just might have been a mental thing today."

Trout can testify to the back nine being better for his team Saturday.

"We started off the day on fire and we were really competitive with the teams on the back nine," Trout said. "We slipped a little on the front nine, but we were able to maintain and get our third-place spot.

"This was an excellent score for us and I am very pleased with these girls today," Trout added. "Every girl, 1-5, shot their best 18-hole round of the season today. So as far as the team score goes, we were very competitive today."
