As the month of October ended with Halloween and Trick or Treat, the Cox Mill Girls Golf Team was competing with the top 12 three-person teams and 42 individual golfers for the 3A Team and Individual Championships at Longleaf Golf and Country Club in Pinehurst, NC. The Cox Mill Girls headed into the State Tournament ranked 8th out of 70 3A teams across the state of North Carolina.
Representing Cox Mill were Seniors Kira A and Jensen R and Freshman Jaime C. Kira lead the team most of the year posting a season average of 43 strokes per nine holes and 3rd on the SPC All-Conference Team. This was Kira’s 4th year on the All-Conference Team and second trip to the State Tournament. Jensen R finished with a season average of 45 strokes per nine holes and 4th on the SPC All-Conference Team. This was Jensen’s 3rd year on the All-Conference Team and first trip to the State Tournament. Freshman Jaime C finished the year with a season average of 48 strokes per nine holes and 5th on the SPC All-Conference Team. This was Jaime’s 1st year on the All-Conference Team and first trip to the State Tournament. All three girls played well at the Regional Tournament on a very difficult course. Their combined 18-hole score was 296 and qualified them as a team for the State Championship. This was the first year Cox Mill has sent a “team” to the Championships and only the second time to be in the State Tournament.
Jensen R finished 24th at Regionals with a score of 97, Kira A finished one stroke back at 98 and Jaime C finished at 102.
At the tournament Jensen started the team off working the first round to a 44 – 44 total 88 score. Her consistent play put her into 14th place as an individual. Kira had a tough start but fought back for a 50 – 43 total 93 score and in 35th place and Jaime finished with three tough holes and a 48 – 48 total 96 score still good for 52nd. On day two Jaime battled the course for a 50 – 47 total of 97 and two day total of 193. Kira still fighting the conditions shot 46 – 50 for a total of 96 and a two day total of 189. Jensen remained consistent and had the team’s best rounds for the second day, finishing 42 – 43 for a total of 85 and a two day total of 173. The final outcome placed Cox Mill in 5th overall in 3A with a team score of 555. Jensen R finished the State Tournament tied for 12th, Kira A in 29th and Jaime C tied for 35th.
This was a great effort by these girls at the State Tournament, but all through the year these three plus Senior Nicole H and Sophomore Alyssa H dominated the SPC regular season and Conference Tournament.
