EW's Taylor takes medalist honors

VANCEBORO -- Brittney Taylor seized medalist honors with an 18-hole round of 81 and sparked Eastern Wayne to a 188-190 victory against Charles B. Aycock in Class 3-A Eastern Carolina Conference play Tuesday at Quaker Neck.

Taylor's season-best effort helped the Warriors trimmed the Golden Falcons' overall lead to a mere seven strokes heading into the final ECC meet of the season. All five teams conclude regular-season play next Wednesday afternoon at Walnut Creek.

"Brittney shot a good score on a tough and tight course," Eastern Wayne coach Scott Waller said. "Ashley (Smith) is improving with each match. There's one match left and Aycock has a seven-stroke lead, so our work is cut out for us."

Smith fired a 107. Teammates Heather Raczkowski and Megan Sutton turned in identical rounds of 122.

Kelli Forbis continued her steady play for Aycock with a 93.

Jordan Hill led Southern Wayne with a 101. The Saints took third overall with a 220, followed by West Carteret (224) and West Craven (283).
