Anika Dy of Traverse City West finished first individually with a 143. Meghan Deardorff of Clarkston and Mikaela Schulz of Bloomfield Hills finished tied for second with 145s.

Johnston was the second lowest individual qualifier. She had only two bad holes in the 36 she played.

She had a triple- and quadruple-bogey on those two holes. Those two holes pushed her out of the overall Top 10.

It was one of the few times she may have lost her edge. Johnson is usually extremely strong mentally.

“She doesn’t have ups and downs that girls her age generally experience,” Davison coach Darci Stocker said. “She has an intense competitive spirit that pushes her to be better and she uses to fuel her practice sessions.”

Still, it was a good way to close out an outstanding career. She has consistently had the low average for the team over the last three years.

“She works hard at every practice and pushes her teammates to be better,” Stocker said. “Her short game is amazing and she manages the course very well.”

Johnson is not sure where she will play in college. But she still has plenty of time to decide that.

Rochester won the team title with a combined score of 618. Novi was second with a 639 and Bloomfield Hills was third with a 648. — K.W.
