Davie’s Kate Sakai earned all-conference status as a junior, and she was joined as a regional qualifier by senior teammate Sophia Garza as the War Eagles competed in their final regular-season match on Oct. 17 at Maple Chase Golf and Country Club.

Garza was Davie’s leader with a score of 44-47 – 91. She closely followed by Sakai (47-45 – 92). Davie’s third scorer was freshman Gwynyth Swan (51-51 – 102).

Four War Eagles played nine holes apiece. Junior Reese Ward shot 49 and sophomore Kori Bailey 50.

The War Eagles finished third on the day and fourth in the final Central Piedmont Conference standings. The top 13 made the all-conference team, and Sakai got there by placing 13th out of 34.

To qualify for the regional, you had to average 50 or less over your lowest five rounds. Sakai (45.2 average) and Garza (47.6) advanced with plenty of room to spare.

The team scores for the season: Reagan 1130, West Forsyth 1188, Reynolds 1468, Davie 1496, Mt. Tabor 1577.
