HARTLAND — It wasn’t even close.

But then again, when was the last time a team came close to the Novi Detroit Catholic Central golf team? The Shamrocks once again proved why they’re the favorites to win a third straight Division 1 state championship this season, taking down the regional field at Dunham Hills Golf Club on Thursday – and in impressive fashion.

Senior Sean Niles fired a 1-under round of 70 to earn medalist honors for Catholic Central. His closest competition was fellow senior teammate Ben Smith, who shot an even-par 71. After that came two more Shamrocks, James Piot and Sean Sooch, who tied for third place with a pair of 72s.

Had it not been for Clarkston senior Brady Dice, who also shot a 72, the Shamrocks would have had the five best golfers on the course. Senior Dyllan Skinner’s 73 was sixth-best on the day, but was thrown out.

Catholic Central’s total of 285 was 29 shots better than Clarkston (314), which finished second. Both the Shamrocks and Wolves now advance on to next week’s state finals in East Lansing. Hartland, which finished with a 315 to finish third, will join them.

Sophomores Harry Bowman (79), Noah Bridgeman (81) and Patrick Deardorff (82) also scored for the Wolves, who are making their first trip to the state finals since 2014. That year they finished 11th.

Hartland’s Nic Hoffman and Dylan Huck each shot a 77 to lead the way for the Eagles.

Northville finished fourth (321), followed by Howell, Livonia Stevenson, Novi, Brighton, Pinckney and Milford in the top 10. Milford’s Christian Golich fired a 79, which was good enough to qualify him for the state finals as an individual. Novi’s Mike Ulle (80) just missed out. Farmington’s Jackson Tellerico also had an 80. Jessie Smothers had an 81 for Lakeland, which was 12th overall.
