Will Erekson fired a six-under-par 66 Saturday, May 24, to lead Northridge to the tournament and overall title in the Northern Lakes Conference boys golf tournament at Christiana Creek Country Club in Elkhart.

Erekson carded seven birdies and one bogey in helping the Raiders post a score of 305. Northridge went 7-0 in NLC duals.

The Raiders had played a dual match against Elkhart Memorial at Christiana Creek on Wednesday, May 21, shortly after a two-inch rain. On Saturday, the conditions were better, and Northridge scored low.

"Will got off to a great start, but the others kids played really well, too," said Raiders coach Dennis Sienicki. "We placed four kids in the top 15."

At the Northeast Corner Conference Championships, John Stack’s medalist score of 73 led Fairfield to the team trophy. The Falcons toured Noble Hawk in Kendallville in 324 strokes.
