North Meck golfer finishes fourth in state tournament

North Mecklenburg junior Katie Kirk finished fourth in the individual standings of the NCHSAA 4A women's golf state championship. Kirk shot a 1-under 72 on Monday and a 4-over 77 on Tuesday at Foxfire Golf and Country Club.

Katherine Perry from Athens Drive in Raleigh won the tournament (73, 71), while Allison Emrey of Ardrey Kell and Sarah Bae of Athens Drive tied for second.

Athens Drive (incidentally, coached by my step-father, Tony Alcon) won their second straight team championship by nine strokes after trailing Ardrey Kell by eight strokes after the first day.

Mattie Toby of East Lincoln tied for third in the NCHSAA 1A/2A/3A tournament. The team finished in sixth.
