For most of the season, the South Piedmont Conference golf title was up for grabs.
Mount Pleasant, Concord and Cox Mill all had a chance to win going into the SPC conference championship meet.
But for the second year in a row, the Tigers came out on top, repeating as SPC champs in only their second of existence as a girls' golf program.
But while Mount Pleasant proved to be the best team, several individuals also stood out for their respective squads.

Cabarrus News Golfer of the Year: Sarah Bertram, Concord
Sarah Bertram proved that she could be considered consistently one of the best golfers in the area.
Concord's top player won the SPC individual title and SPC Golfer of the Year honors (lowest average over the season) by shooting a 46 at the conference tournament. She followed that up by not only shooting an 86 to finish tied for eighth at the regional meet at Skybrook, but also finishing tied for 15th at the state meet at Long Leaf Golf and Country Club in Southern Pines.
Bertram battled Rebecca Mirovich all year in conference, regional and state play, just edging out the Mount Pleasant senior for Cabarrus News Player of the Year.
Cabarrus News Coach of the Year: Randy Kaiser, Mount Pleasant
Two years go, Mount Pleasant High did not even have a girls' golf program.
Already, Randy Kaiser and his team have won both of the SPC titles in their only two seasons as a team.
This year, the Tigers beat Cox Mill by two strokes and Concord by six shots to repeat as SPC champions. Sisters, Rebecca and Lacy Mirovich again led the way for the Tigers as two of the top three players in the conference for most of the year.
