Mooresville High School’s girls golf team put the finishing touches on itspositioning as the fairway’s finest following the firing of the regular-season’s final strokes the I-Meck Conference tour.

Alongside all other fellow I-Meck entries on Mallard Creek’s home Birkdale Country Club course earlier this week, the Devils settled for the nine-hole match’s second-place finish that still more than assured their overall still somewhat sizable cushion in the circuit’s overall stroke standings.

Taking a commanding advantage in that regard into the finale, Mooresville posted a team stroke score of 136 that merely served to trim its eventual overall edge well into the double-digit department. As a result, the Devils girls golf team becomes the first from the school’s athletic department during this fall season to capture a conference crown.

For the record, season-long runner-up finisher Hough High took top team honors in the match with a score of 131 that allowed it to trim a handful of strokes of the overall lead.

Lake Norman posted a team score of 167 strokes that served to also support its overall third-place finish in the final stroke standings. Rounding out the field for both the match and season overall, respectively, found Hopewell High lining up fourth followed in order by Mallard Creek, West Charlotte, North Mecklenburg and Vance.

In the final individual competition, matters also went right down to some of the final strokes.

Mooresville’s Lauren Martin, in contention for the top individual title all fall, logged in with a team-low tally of 39 strokes that placed her second in the field overall. It was also used to support the senior’s status as the overall runner-up in the league for medalist honors.

Additional for the team champions, Megan Bornkamp notched a score of 46 that was second-best among the Devils and was her third-best score in the league overall. Also for Mooresville, it bunched together the matching scores of 51 managed by both Olivia Vero — who also placed among the league’s top-10 total stroke scorers — as well as Cailynn Winford for its final team tally.

As is the case with all girls golf matches, teams add together their three lowest scores to fashion a stroke total.

For Lake Norman, it was able to compute the 49 fashioned by Meredith Carson along with the 53 shot by Meghan Christensen and the 55 turned in by Lilly Stewart to achieve it team’s match stroke total.

The regular-season segment of the schedule’s I-Meck tour now complete, qualifying members of both the Mooresville and Lake Norman girls golf teams will next hit the links for the scheduled N.C. High School Athletic Association 4A class West Regional. It will tee off later this month. Top finishing teams and a select number of top placing individuals not one any of those advancing rosters will merit the right to reach the NCHSAA 4A girls golf finals to be held later in October.{/div}
