Titan golfers enter postseason with two state championship goals
TRAVERSE CITY -- The West Senior High girls golf program knows what its like to win a team state championship and an individual crown.
Two seasons ago, the Titans were victorious as a team at the Division 1 state finals on the campus of Grand Valley State University. Freshman Anika Dy came up a stroke short of winning an individual state title in that tournament but bounced back her sophomore season to win top medalist honors in 2016.
Now Traverse City West is looking to put together both successes in the same postseason. The Titans started this season off with a 10-tournament win streak. The first event they finished runner-up in was without either of their top two golfers Anika, now a junior, and her sister Anci Dy who is just a freshman. Both girls were taking part in a USGA women's team championship event in New Mexico.
Traverse City West will begin regionals on Thursday at Sunnybrook Country Club down near Grand Rapids. The state finals will begin on Friday, October 20th at The Meadows, the same course at Grand Valley State where they were victorious in 2015.
