FRANKLIN — After shooting a solid 77 on the opening day of the girls golf state finals, Sydney Anderson was even better on Saturday.
The Columbus North sophomore fired a 2-over-par 74 at Legends Golf Club to finish in a tie for 11th individually at 151. She was tied for 16th after the opening round.
“It’s the best feeling I have ever had,” Anderson said. “I was so excited to get to state, and playing as well I did in the regional was awesome. But this is just great.”
Anderson got off to fast starts both days. She started on the back nine Friday by parring the first eight holes. Saturday, she started on the front and was 1-under through eight holes and shot 37 on both nines.
“I got there in the morning, and when I hit on the range, I was just keeping my head clear,” Anderson said. “Both days on the first tee, I hit a great shot, so it was just a good start to both days.”
Kelly Grassel of Chesterton fired a 7-under 137 to win her second consecutive title. Top-ranked Yorktown claimed the team championship.
