The Northgate boys and girls golf teams punched their tickets to the Class AAAAA state sectionals next month with a solid performance at the Region 3-AAAAAA tournament.

Playing at Georgia National in McDonough, the girls fired an overall score of 300, while the boys finished with a 328.

Haley Grant, Ashton Thompson and Kelly Henderson led the girls team, while the boys were led by Maddux Lytle, Bo Weizkum, Daniel Salvatore and Nathan Garner.
