Prep Golf: Yatawara tied for 2nd; Hornets 5th

Salisbury senior Grace Yatawara shot 9-over 81 on Monday and is tied for second after the first day of 1A/2A State Championships at Longleaf Golf and Country Club in Southern Pines.
Yatawara has placed in the top five three straight years and won the individual championship in 2014.
Belmont Stuart Cramer’s Ellie Porman made two birdies and shot 76 for the first-round lead. She holds a five-shot edge over Yatawara, Ashe County’s Sarah Hardin and Gastonia Highland Tech’s Caroline Cole.
Yatawara had double bogeys on No. 10 and No. 1. She carded five bogeys and 11 pars. She made six straight pars in one stretch.
Salisbury has won four straight 1A/2A championships, but that streak is in jeopardy. The Hornets are in fifth place and will go into the final 18 holes 14 shots off the pace. West Davidson and Gray Stone are tied for first at 267. Croatan shot 272. Hendersonville is fourth at 274.
Salisbury senior Shelby Holden shot 52-46 — 98.
An “11” on the par-5, 500-yard No. 8 hole hurt, but Holden made six pars.
Salisbury senior Caroline Parrott shot 51-51 — 102, giving the Hornets a 281 team score.
Parrott made a birdie on the par-3 No. 6 hole. She made two pars to help offset quadruple bogeys on two par-5s.
Gray Stone’s top three were Micah Mason (42-43 — 85), Colby McMillan (43-45 – 88) and Lauren Denhard (46-48 — 94).
West Davidson scorers were Rachael Mast (84), Olivia Sharpe (90) and Olivia Mast (93).
East Wake Academy’s Caitlyn Seastrunk made a hole-in-one on the 138-yard No. 6 hole on her way to a 97.
The course is set at par 72, with the championship layout playing 5,659 yards.
The best three scores count toward a team total, and some teams had four or five girls qualify.
The final round will start at 9 a.m. today.

In the 3A State Championships being held on the Red Fox Course at Red Fox Course at Foxfire Resort and Golf Club, Carson’s Micah Furr and Adison Collins competed as individuals.
Furr, the South Piedmont Conference champion, shot 40-49 — 89. The junior started strong and was tied for sixth after nine holes. She finished the first round 17-over and is tied for 26th.
Furr birdied the 487-yard No. 4 hole and made seven pars. She had trouble on No. 11 and No. 14. Those two holes required 17 strokes.
Collins, a senior, shot 49-49 — 98 and is tied for 53rd in a field of 78 golfers.
Collins made three pars and six bogeys and didn’t have any disastrous holes.
Chapel Hill’s Gina Kim made five birdies, shot 4-under 68 and has a four-shot lead.
Cox Mill’s Jaime Cassell shot 38-42 — 80 and is tied for 11th.
