Athens Drive's girls golf team appears to be on the warpath to repeating their state title of a year ago.
The Lady Jags won the East Regional by 18 strokes, and their score of 233 was 28 strokes lower than the next-best team in the West or Central regionals.
Freshman Sarah Bae led the Jags by winning the East Regional with a 74. Katherine Perry was close behind, coming in third with a 78. The Jags' Sydney Shackleford finished fifth with a 81 and Mandy Monchick tied for sixth with an 82.
All those four can post something similar, the Jaguars will be hard to beat in Tuesday's state title at Foxfire Country Club in West End, N.C.
Green Hope, which finished second in the Tri-Nine Conference to Athens Drive, came in with the third-lowest team score and qualifed for the state championship as well.
The Falcons were led by Andrea Estes, who finished 10th with an 84.
Apex may have missed the cutoff to qualify as a team, but they will send one individual qualifier in Michelle Pilo. Pilo tied Athens' Monchick for sixth.
