Franklin High School senior, Erin Campbell began playing golf as a freshman. Four years later, this Monday and Tuesday, she competed at the North Carolina State Championship for 2-A golf at Pinehurst for the second time in her high school career. She has qualified three times, but was unable to compete last year.
On Monday she shot a 93 and on Tuesday a 91, finishing 20th out of 77 golfers.
Before the season kicked off back in August, Campbell said that she just wanted to have a season like the one she had as a junior.
“Last year, three of us qualified for state,” she had said. “I'm just hoping for another good season.”
As the only returning player, the stakes were set high, even if she didn't realize it. Under those circumstances she managed to rise to the occasion more than a few times and she consistently finished with the best scores of the team for Franklin.
