APALACHIN, Ny - On Tuesday, October 6, the Norwich varsity golf team traveled to The Links at Hiawatha Landing in Apalachin, Ny to compete in the Class B tournament. Norwich would tie with Susquehanna Valley for first place with an overall team score of 410, but would be bumped to second after a tie breaker.

"We played really well and I'm very proud of the kids."
