Northside Christian has won its own invitational every year due in part to a lineup of five golfers who can shoot par on any given day.

On Thursday, the Mustangs were not at their best. They did not have the individual champion. That honor went to Palm Harbor University’s Jasmine Wade, who shot 2-under 69.

Yet it didn’t matter as Northside still overwhelmed the field, winning with a combined score of 294, 48 strokes ahead of the Hurricanes.

The Mustangs’ Michelle Butler finished as the runnerup with 70. Teammates AJ and Anna Newell each shot 75.

“The conditions were fine, but you can’t play perfect all the time,” Northside coach DJ Jackson said. “We didn’t light it up, but we still have the numbers, top to bottom, to win when we are off.

“It was probably good for us because it will get us ready for districts.”
