This week’s Orange Panther of the Week is senior golfer Sarah Durham. Last week during Orange’s second meet of the year at the Preserves at Jordan Lake, Durham finished tied for 2nd place with a 47 in nine holes. Only Eastern Alamance’s Emily Matthews finished ahead of Durham. On Sunday mornings, you can probably find Durham on the practice range at Occoneechee Golf Course in Hillsborough. She constantly works on her short game, as well as teeing off. Her younger sister, Samantha, also plays on the Orange golf team. Her brother, Chris, played at Cedar Ridge and attends Campbell University. Sarah opened the year on September 6 with a 4th place finish at the opening Central Carolina Conference meet of the year at Occoneechee. Last spring, Sarah qualified for the 3A Central Regionals in Greensboro. She aims to do that again this year, as well. First of all, there are several more regular season meets, in which Sarah hopes to improve both her short game and her overall score. On Monday, Orange and Cedar Ridge will take part in the Valley Golf Course in Burlington, hosted by Western Alamance.
