All-girl team from Ponteland High School win Northumberland Schools Team Championship

Sisters Zara and Charlotte Naughton and Louisa Hamilton teamed up to win the Northumberland Schools Team Championship at Longhirst Hall and book a trip to the England Golf National Schools Final at Woodhall Spa this summer.

The Ponteland High School team, who are all members of Ponteland Golf Club, posted a best-two-from-three total of 149 to beat Chantry Middle School on countback and book their place in the national final on July 5 at the home of England Golf.

The individual gross prize was also decided on countback, between the Naughton sisters, with Charlotte pipping Zara after both shot level-par rounds of 73. Meanwhile, Junior Dobson – from QEHS and Hexham Golf Club – won the boys’ gross prize with a level-par round of 73.
