Prep golf: Salisbury takes second in regional

Staff report
Salisbury’s girls golf team finished second in the 1A/2A/3A Central Regional at Statesville Country Club on Monday.
Madison Kennedy led the Hornets with an 80, which put her in a tie for second place individually. Lily Yatawara (85, tied for fourth) and Amber Lyerly also scored for Salisbury. The qualifying cutoff for individuals not scoring on a top-four team was at 102 when play was stopped due to darkness, and senior captain Catherine Parks missed out with a 104.
Kennedy, Yatawara and Lyerly will represent Salisbury next week during the 36-hole state tournament at Longleaf Golf and Country Club in Southern Pines.
“Second place doesn’t even matter to us because the team’s disappointed we’re not all going,” Salisbury coach Dale Snyder said.
Western Alamance won the regional with a team total of 260, and the Hornets posted a 267. Western’s Lori Beth Adams was the medalist with a 79. The Warriors’ second-best score was an 86, followed by a 95.
Kennedy shot a 38 on the back nine of the 5,680-yard layout.
“She was striking the ball great,” Snyder said. “No one on the team putted well, but Madison gave herself the chance for some birdies by hitting the ball close.”
West Rowan’s Katie Knepp (100) and East Rowan’s Samantha Haviland (100) qualified as individuals. West’s Alex Mills had a 102, so her status will be known once the regional officially concludes.
