Harris competed well, according to SMHS Coach Nathan Brown. She shot a 96, which put her six strokes away from advancing to the state tourney and representing SMHS there.

"Tori played some great golf yesterday (Sept. 26) on a very tough course. She also played with a four-time state qualifier and didn't blink an eye. Tori displayed immense poise in a few difficult situations yesterday. I am proud to be her coach and we should all be proud to call her a Panther. Tori exhibited character and composure yesterday that some tour professionals lack. I could not be more proud of a young lady, than I am of Tori. It is an honor to be her coach," said SMHS Coach Nathan Brown.
