Charlotte Latin golfer sets school record

Charlotte Latin's Drew Lankford, a junior captain, set a school record with a 6-under par 65 at Cedarwood Country Club in a match against Providence Day.

Last summer, Lankford tied for fifth in the city amateur championship.

Latin (12-2) was ranked third in the N.C. 3A private-school poll before Tuesday's rain-shortened loss to Forsyth Country Day at Providence Country Club. The Hawks shot 152 over nine holes before heavy rains fell, and Forsyth Country Day shot 148.

Lankford's 37 was Latin's lowest score.
