Sarah Fite wins state championship

Mason County senior Sarah Fite won the Leachman Buick-GMC-Cadillac/KHSAA Girls State Golf Championship today at Bowling Green Country Club.

Fite, who began the day tied for seventh place, fired a one-under 71 and had a two-day total of one-over 145 for a three-shot victory over Murray senior Sarah McDowell.

Fite had 13 pars, three birdies and two bogeys today. She has verbally committed to the University of Kentucky.

Mason County finished eighth in the team competition for the second straight year. Jordan Frodge had a two-day total of 22-over 166 and tied for 27th place.  Charity Arn (182), Erika Simms (206) and Haley White (214) rounded out the scoring for the Lady Royals. The top four scores were used for the team total. 

Fite is the third Mason County golfer to win an individual state championship. Mike Faurest won in 1964 and Jim Striplin was the 1972 state champion. Mason County won the boys team state golf championship in 1967.
