WARSAW â€” It wasnâ€™t necessarily NorthWoodâ€™s goal to walk out of the Warsaw Sectional with the championship.

It wasnâ€™t the Panthersâ€™ goal to take home the sectional trophy, but it sure felt good.
NorthWood carded a 348 to beat out second-place Wawasee by 12 strokes and run away with the teamâ€™s first-ever sectional championship Saturday at the Warsaw Girls Golf Sectional at Stonehenge.
