The Lowell High Golf team finished their impressive season with a 16-2 record, an MVC championship, and a third place finish at the sectional tournament. Senior captains, Eric Roy and Brendan Broderick, offered the Raiders consistent leadership this year.  Roy will be continuing his season after a strong showing at the sectional tournament.

The Lowell High Golf team won several very important, close matches throughout the year.  Their only two losses of the year came against Central Catholic, away, and Andover, away. The team felt good going into sectionals, but fell one place short of qualifying for states. Roy  shot an impressive 74, qualifying for the MIAA State tournament as an individual.

Most important match of the year was against Methuen. Lowell needed to win this match in order to clinch the MVC championship. Lowell came from behind to defeat methuen and take their 16th win, enough to clinch the championship.
