The Lakeland Union High School golf team has been on a historic tear through the Great Northern Conference this season and it culminated on Friday evening.

The Thunderbirds won all six GNC meets, including Thursday at Eagle River, leading into the final tournament at Inshalla Country Club in Tomahawk on Friday.

For all intents and purposes, Lakeland had already clinched the conference championship on Thursday, but that didn't stop the T-Birds from shooting a season-low 305 to win its fist GNC crown since 2014 and becoming just the second team to win all seven tournaments since Rhinelander did so in the first season of the format in 2011.

"That's a great feeling for me and every one of these players to make history like that," LUHS head coach Scott Howard. "That's our lowest score of the year and I believe a Lakeland team record. I'm not aware of any score lower than a 305. It's also the first time we've had four players in the 70s. I don't know if that's happened either, but there was a lot of history being made."

Lakeland had four players shoot less than 80, with Kaily Godfrey, Kyle Bengtson and Adam Lazaroff all tying for fourth place with a 78.

Meanwhile, Ansen Nomm clinched the individual GNC title by winning the meet with a career-best 71.

"I certainly knew he was capable of it, but we didn't exactly set that as a goal," Howard said. "We're trying to play as well as we can. His game was just really good all year. The ball flight and distance has really helped him be able to score and he's a grinder. His attitude is unbelievable. Even when it's a bad day, he's never gonna give up."

Lakeland also became the first team in GNC history to place all five players in the top 10 and the first team to have three of the top four golfers.

The T-Birds actually put all five of their players in the top nine, as Bengtson finished second overall, Lazaroff was fourth, Godfrey was seventh and Jake Collins placed ninth.

"We had a lot of personal-bests and career-lows just in our conference season - each player," Howard said. "You can go right down the list. That tells you everyone is capable of it, they did it. Five in the top nine - it's pretty difficult to do any better than that."

Lakeland now moves on to the WIAA Division 2 Regionals at Indianhead Golf Course in Mosinee today, where it hopes to begin its path to the state meet for the second year in a row.

The T-Birds shot a 312 at the course during the first GNC meet of the season.

"Everyone has their own shot shapes, their own abilities, whether it's length or their working the ball left to right or right to left," Howard said. "We'll get a clear-cut plan as to how everyone is going to play each hole and we're going to try to stick to that plan ... I don't believe we're going to have to shoot an extremely low number there because of the difficulty, but we're going to play some solid golf as a team to move on."
