In 2003, the NDA girls golf program was a below average high school golf team that averaged 200.9 shots and finished with an overall record of 94-30. It did not win the conference or qualify for the state tournament.

In 2005, the team went to the state tournament and finished in fifth place, but only nine shots out of first. On the ride home from Madison in the team van, the girls spoke about realizing they had let an opportunity slip by. They had not thought of themselves as having state championship potential, but that changed immediately.

The entire team would be returning for the 2006 season. The girls committed to each other and the program that they would do everything in their power to improve and return to Madison one year later to bring home the WIAA state championship trophy.

The 2006 season saw the Tritons roll through tournament after tournament. The varsity went undefeated, winning the Fox River Valley Conference and all six invitationals. They won the WIAA regional and the WIAA sectional. They returned to Madison as they discussed one year prior and blew away the field at the WIAA state tournament, winning the state championship by 23 shots. They finished with a record of 151-0 and averaged 166.08 shots per nine holes. They became the first Green Bay area team to win a golf state championship.

The dramatic improvement in the program from 2003 to 2006 can be attributed to the hard work and dedication of the players who committed to becoming a record-breaking team.

Three of the five players went on to play NCAA Division I College golf (Hofstra University, Nebraska University, and the University of Illinois).
