PLYMOUTH — Northwestern’s girls golf team opened its season Tuesday with a nice showing in Plymouth’s 12-team invitational at Pretty Lake G.C. South Bend St. Joseph won the title with a score of 379 and the Tigers followed in second place with 383.

Audrey Koetter (91) and Molly Habig (92) led the Tigers in their opener. Leah Parrott (99) and Jocelyn Smith (101) followed for the Tigers.
