The Midland Athletic League (MAL) has instituted a new format for determining the league golf champion. The North Baltimore High School Golf team competed in the first shoot-out at Loudon Meadows.
Previously, an end of the year, 18 hole tournament was held to determine the champion, at Green Hills near Clyde. The new format divides the twelve teams in the league into three divisions of four teams each. Three shoot-outs are held, at three different courses (which will rotate each year), with eight teams playing a sort of Round Robin among the three divisions.
At each shoot-out, teams and players will be awarded one point for each team or player that they beat. There will still be the 18 hole tournament, where points will again be awarded to teams and players, based on who they beat. All of the points from the shoot-outs and the tournaments will be added together, with the high totals determining the order of finish for the team and for determining all-league honors.
The Tigers finished 3rd of the eight teams, with balanced scoring, as noted in the table of results below.

The end of the year tournament will be Friday, September 21at Green Hills near Clyde.
