The Second Annual HighSchoolOT Girls’ Golf Team features 11 returning selections.
HSOT uses the championship scores to determine who makes the first, second and third team, calculating each player’s handicap differential based on those performances to balance the varying difficulties of the four different courses that were used.
To break the ties between players who had the same league scores but were tied for one of the last places in the first, second or third team, we looked at which course was more difficult. If there were still ties, they were broken based on A) NCISAA player rank during the season or B) performance at the NCHSAA Regional Championships. This year we had to use regional performances to determine the final place in the three teams.
Reagan, who finished the season # 1 on the statewide HighSchoolOT rankings, placed two players in the first team and one in the third team. Cardinal Gibbons, second, had players in the first and second teams, while Pinecrest, third, landed two players in the third team.
Full teams are listed below, with players listed in order of their handicap differential based on their league scores.
Although the NC Independent Schools Athletic Association Championship is still condensed into one round, the NC High School Athletic Association has returned to a two-day event this season.
