Monday was quite a day for North Idaho College as the Cardinals won NWAC championships in softball, men’s golf and women’s golf.
The Cardinals’ softball team completed its season-long dominance of the NWAC, defeating Lower Columbia 8-5 at Merkel Complex in Spokane. Jori Kerr drove in three runs and Megan Carver drove in two for NIC. The Cardinals finished the season 50-3.
North Idaho won the men’s golf team and individual titles at Apple Valley in Yakima.
The Cardinals tied Bellevue for the tournament championship, shooting 580 over two days. CC Spokane was third at 597. NIC, the regular season champion, takes home the overall team championship.
NIC’s Sean Langham shot back-to-back 2-under rounds of 70 to win the individual title by two strokes.
It wasn’t a clean sweep, however, as Columbia Basin won the women’s golf team title while NIC’s Madi Brown won the individual championship, shooting 159 over two rounds.
Columbia Basin had a score of 489 over two days at Apple Valley. Community Colleges of Spokane was second at 500 and North Idaho third at 502.
