3A WOMEN'S GOLF


AYCOCK'S SIMMONS TAKES INDIVIDUAL HONORS; LEDFORD HOLDS ON TO WIN TEAM TITLE




FOXFIRE VILLAGE— Junior Tara Simmons of Pikeville Charles B. Aycock made her six-shot advantage after one day stand up on Tuesday to win the individual crown in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association’s state 3-A women’s golf championships at the West Course at the Foxfire Resort and Golf Club in Foxfire Village.


Simmons had a 76 in the opening round to open up a six-shot lead and then added a 79 in the final 18 for a 155 total, ahead of Concord's Sarah Bertram with a 161. Bertram closed in strong fashion with a 75 on Tuesday, the best round of the day, to go with her opening 86.


Taylor Penzer of Northern Guilford was third with a 165 total and Rachel Jones of Southwestern Randolph was one stroke behind in fourth.


The course was set at par 72 and a 5,787-yard layout for the two-day, 36-hole championship.


Ledford had just a one-shot lead after the first day in the team standings but held off the field with a total of 541, shooting a 264 on the final day, the lowest team score of the event. Ledford finished four shots ahead of runner-up Northern Guilford, while Raleigh Cardinal Gibbons placed third at 555 and Waxhaw Marvin Ridge was fourth at 564.


The best three scores of a team counted toward the team totals, and a total of 13 teams and 78 golfers competed in the event, the ninth year that the sport has been classified. It was the first time that three separate championships have been held and the 31st year for state championship competition in the sport.
