Sullivan South senior Lacie York has been a dominant force in high school golf for the past four years. A two-time District 1-AAA champ, she won the Region 1 tournament last year in Morristown. York has signed to play collegiately at Middle Tennessee State and is looking forward to the next level of competition.

“The Last Song.”
What is your best athletic memory?
I sank a long putt to finish second in the middle school state tournament when I was in the eighth grade.
What is your worst athletic memory?
Last year’s high school state tournament. We had a chance to win as a team and I didn’t play very well and we didn’t win.

If you hosted a dinner party and could invite any three people, who would they be?
Paula Creamer, Arnold Palmer and Adam Scott

I’d really want to fly.
Do you have any superstitions?
Do you have a nickname?
What advice do you have for younger players?
Wish that I had paid more attention to our nine-hole matches. They should have been more fun than I let them be.
