Favorite high school memory:

"Freshman year when we went as a team to state."

Coach/Teacher who made the biggest impact:

"Coach Braden really helped me with staying patient on the course. I feel I’ve been able to mature as both a golfer and a person with his guidance."

Thing you will miss the most about high school:

"My friends, teammates, the state tournaments and the Bertoldie Cup."

Best part about high school and this community:

"The coaches and teachers at North are awesome and they’ve really created a culture that definitely will be missed."
