Athens claims another state title
November 5, 2011Tri-Nine Conference
PINEHURST - Not every surprise was bad for Sarah Bae on Tuesday. As the best golfer for Athens Drive, she started to cry after coming off the 18th green at Pinehurst No. 6 course.
Bae, a junior, felt she had let herself and her teammates down. An 8-over-par 79 wasn’t good enough for the individual title. She thought maybe it wasn’t enough for her team to win, either.
Hilary Gugig saw Bae and hugged her. Then Gugig gave Bae the news: The Jaguars were going to be champs again.
Athens Drive won the 4A N.C. High School Athletic Association girls’ golf championship by 10 strokes led by Gugig, who had her best round of the season.
“I felt bad because I thought I let the team down, but luckily I had a teammate who backed me up,” Bae said. “This is big, and I’m glad we didn’t repeat the same thing last year.”
