After wrapping up an 11-1 regular season, the Lake Norman Charter golf team earned a trip to the 1A state championship last week.
At the 1A West Regional, which was held at Hendersonville Country Club, the Knights shot a 324 to tie host school Hendersonville High for top place. Lake Norman Charter lost the tie breaker - comparing each team's fifth golfers' scores - and was awarded the West Region 1A runner-up trophy for a second consecutive year.
The Knights' Ben Catonni's 78 led the team, while Jake Blum (80) and Sean Murphy (81) also helped the team. Ross Goldbrum (85) and Gib Baker (86) also scored for Lake Norman Charter.
The 1A boys' golf championships were held Monday and Tuesday at Keith Hills Golf Course at Campbell University in Buies Creek.
