Athens Drive’s Sarah Bae wins 4A girls’ golf title
November 3, 2012Tri-Nine Conference
PINEHURST - Tears again came to Sarah Bae’s eyes as she walked off the 18th green at Pinehurst No. 6 Golf Course Tuesday. But these were different tears from last year, when the Athens Drive golfer finished third individually at the 4A girls’ golf state championships only to realize later that her performance was enough to help capture a team title.
These were tears of happiness, gratitude and the sweet relief of a finally grabbing the girls golf championship that had been her goal since her freshman year.
Bae sank a 21-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole to defeat New Bern’s Ashley Osiecki. The only qualifier from her school, Bae had no teammates to celebrate with this year, but her friends from conference schools like Fuquay-Varina, Middle Creek, Green Hope and Lee County rooted her on and were the first to hug her as she stepped off the green.
The senior, committed to play at High Point next year, shot a 74 on the second day for a 152 two-day total. She and Osiecki played the 18th hole twice in the playoff, both shooting par on the first playoff hole to force a second.
