Chapel Hill High School alumna Natalie Sutton has collected her first Guilford College Student-Athlete of the Week Award, given for her play as a sophomore on the Quakers’ tennis team. The honor is presented weekly by Guilford College’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.
Sutton, who plays No. 2 singles and No. 1 doubles with Kim Kleimeier for the Quakers, lost only six points in three singles matches the previous week, winning all three bouts in straight sets. In doubles, she got wins against Old Dominion Athletic Conference-foes Randolph-Macon College and Sweet Briar College, helping the Quakers extend their team winning streak to six straight, the program’s longest since 1996.
Sutton has a 6-13 overall singles record and has played in each of the top four flights this year. She and Kleimeier are 8-5 on the year in doubles and had a five-match winning streak snapped in a loss to Emory & Henry Apr. 1.
The Quakers are 9-7 on the year, 6-3 in the ODAC, with one final regular-season match to go April 14 with Bridgewater.A team first at Treyburn
East Carolina University signee Jacob Hicks, a senior from Mebane at Alamance Christian School, shot a 76 to earn a piece of a five-way tie for fourth place at the annual N.C. High School Invitational golf tournament at Treyburn.
East Chapel Hill sophomore Ben Griffin, already committed to the University of North Carolina, recovered slightly from a 41 on the front nine to card an 80 and tie for 24th place in the elite field.
Thomas Walsh, a High Point Westchester Country Day freshman, shot 1-over-par 73, then survived a three-way playoff for medalist honors. His Wildcats shot 313 to beat second-place Broughton by three strokes on the refurbished 7,070-yard layout at Treyburn Country Club, becoming the first team from outside Wake County to win the six-year-old event.
Griffin, the defending NCHSAA 4A champion, recently added another event to his summer tour: He’ll again represent North Carolina in the Callaway Junior World Golf Championships July 9-13 at Torrey Pines in San Diego, Cal. W.E. Warnock: 919-932-8743
