Cougars clinch league title

Niwot’s Julia Solem watches an errant putt at the Northridge league meet, held in deceptively chilly conditions on April 25 at the deceptively hard Highland Hills golf course in Greeley. She ended the day with an 85 (+14), which was good for second overall.

First on the leaderboard was her teammate Halie Ostrom, who clinched her first-ever event title with an 84 (+13). Niwot freshman Sydney Rothstein finished in fourth (+16), and senior Laure Bourgin (+23) finished tied for ninth. That was enough to give Niwot the team title by 20 strokes, and sole possession of the 2019 Northern League title.
