King finishes 10 back, tied for sixth at state

TARBORO — Tarboro High School's only female golfer Katie King finished 10 strokes back on the final day of the NCHSAA 1-A/2-A state golf championships. She had to settle for a sixth place tie, which was a better finish than last year's finals.

The senior shot an 81 on Monday in the opening round at Longleaf Golf and Country Club in Southern Pines.

On Tuesday, King improved her score by one stroke, shooting an 80. She finished with a 161 two-day total and finished in a tie with Madeline Hoskins from Salisbury.

King improved overall on a two-day total from last season's finals performance, because last year at Foxfire Village, King finished in seventh place and shot a 169 over the two-day period.

Salisbury built a convincing lead after the first day and then kept rolling Tuesday to take the title. It was their third consecutive state crown. They expanded their 34-shot lead after Monday to card a 474 and win by a whopping 57 shots over Newport Croatan at 531 and Elkin who was third with a 533.

Elkin’s Annika Winebarger took the individual crown with a nine-over par total of 151, three shots ahead of teammate Mary Frances Hall. Wineberger had the low round on Monday at 74 and added a 77 in the final 18 holes.

Two-time defending champion Isabella Rusher of Salisbury finished in a deadlock for second with Hall with rounds of 75-79.  Leann Domitrovits of Croatan was fourth, five shots back.

The best three scores of a team counted toward the team totals, and a total of nine teams and 78 golfers competed 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.
