State golf title a possibility for area teams

As main spy Keith D. wrote about in today's Oakland Press, the Oakland County Division I girls golf tournament is being held on Wednesday at Pontiac Country Club. Hard to believe the season is winding down, but the most important tournaments of the season are nearing.
Looking at the state rankings and the fact that there's no great team at all around the state other than Lansing Catholic Central in Division 4, Kosmo wouldn't be surprised if an area team won a state title, particularly in Division 1.
Stoney Creek is ranked No. 1 in the state and has the best player in the state, Gabby Yurik, who alone puts the Cougars into contention despite the fact they're not as deep as they were last year when they were state runner-up.
If the Cougars can get some low scores to flank Yurik, they have a shot. Another team with a chance is Troy, is has a good lineup from top to bottom even though it doesn't have a stud player like Yurik.
Both Troy and Stoney Creek have won tournaments over other top teams in the state this year, such as Grosse Pointe South and Plymouth.
In Division 2, Farmington Hills Mercy, Birmingham Seaholm and Birmingham Marian shouldn't be counted out either since there's no great team in Division 2 either.
Without question, a state title is within reach for area teams.
