MARTINSVILLE -- The Northview girls' golf team had its share of struggles on a long, cold and damp day at Martinsville's Fox Cliff Golf Course.
Karlie Atkinson led the team with a 104 on a difficult golf course in less than ideal conditions as Northview finished 12th at the Martinsville Regional.
Center Grove was the overall team winner with a 340 followed six strokes back by Martinsville.
The third, and final team qualifier for the state finals, turned out to be Bloomington North after a fifth score tiebreaker with Terre Haute North, which also shot 360. The resulting tiebreaker edge sent the Cougars to the weekend's state finals tourney and left the Patriots heartbroken as senior Rachel Welker also missed the finals in a sudden death playoff with Terre Haute South's Morgan Patterson.
The Braves' golfer birdied the second playoff hole to advance as an individual as Welker missed the IHSAA Finals for the first time in her four years.
Megan Heaton shot a 106 for second on the Knights as Macie Lynch shot a 107, Keirsten Mikesell had a 108 and Sierra Girton added a 111.
