The matchup of past Division 1 individual champions this weekend at The Meadows at Grand Valley State may be the most compelling of many storylines heading into this weekend’s Lower Peninsula Girls Golf Finals. The preview came during the Oct. 4 Regional at Davison Country Club – and Grand Blanc junior Kate Brody showed again why she’s been one of the most acclaimed high school golfers in the state from her first step on the course as a freshman.

Brody – the reigning Division 1 Finals champion – shot a 5-under-par 67 to outpace by four strokes Okemos senior Allison Cui, who won the Division 2 championship in 2020 and Division 1 in 2019. That Regional victory came a week after an impressive run of two tournament wins in two days, when she fired a 77 to win the Saginaw Valley League championship at The Fortress in Frankenmuth and the next day shot a 68 at Warwick Hills to top the leaderboard at the Grand Blanc Invitational.
