SALISBURY HAS BIG LEAD IN 1-A/2-A WOMEN’S GOLF TEAM STANDINGS;
ELKIN’S WINEBARGER LEADS WAY IN INDIVIDUAL RACE
SOUTHERN PINES— Salisbury, seeking its third consecutive state title, rolled to a convincing lead after Monday’s opening day of play in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association’s state 1-A/2-A women’s golf championships at the Longleaf Golf and Country Club.
Salisbury, seeking its third straight state team title, shot a 233 for the day, a whopping 34 strokes ahead of Newport Croatan and Elkin, who are tied for second at 267.
Elkin’s Annika Winebarger recorded the best individual round, a three-over par 74, one shot ahead of two-time defending champion Isabella Rusher of Salisbury. Croatan’s Leann Domitrovits and Salisbury’s Madeline Hoskins are knotted at third at 78, four shots back.
The course is set at par 71 and 5,770 yards for the championship.
The best three scores of a team count toward the team totals, and a total of nine teams and 78 golfers are competing in the event, the 11th year that the sport has been classified. It is the third year that three separate championships have been held and the 33rd year for state championship competition in the sport.
The final day of play is scheduled to get underway at 9:00 on Tuesday morning.
