From staff reportsJuly 23, 2013 

Emilia Migliaccio of Cary won a girls’ golf tournament earlier this month at Pine Needles Lodge & Golf Club in Southern Pines with a 2-under-par 140.

The victory qualifies her to play in the Big "I" national championships.

Ravenscroft’s Jessica Kittelberger, who tied for third, also advanced.

Greenville’s Bryce Hendrix won the boys’ title with a 6-under-par 67-69–136 at Longleaf Golf & Country Club in Southern Pines.

Broughton’s Will Minton and Alex Hefner of Conover tied for second at 5 under and qualified for the boys’ championships along with Stephen Franken of Raleigh, Kendrick Vinar of Hillsborough and Michael McMahon of Raleigh.

The national tournament will be played at the Country Club of North Carolina in Pinehurst on Aug. 5-8.

NCCA soccer additions: Two local players were added to the N.C. Coaches Association girls’ soccer roster for the East team.

Cardinal Gibbons’ Leigh McGill and Raleigh Charter’s Rachel Hammond were two of three players who slid into the all-star game, replacing Chapel Hill’s Alexis Moiseenko and Green Hope’s Alexis Degler and Alexis Shaffer.

The game was scheduled to be played Tuesday at UNC-Greensboro.

NCHSAA off week: Area athletes are in the middle of an N.C. High School Athletic Association mandated “dead period” in which school-organized offseason workouts are suspended.

It is the second of two such periods during the summer.

Meanwhile, coaches are taking part in the N.C. Coaches Association coaches clinic.

The Greensboro-based clinic is organized in conjunction with the NCCA all-star games.

Junior beach volleyball championships: Kimberly Hovey of Raleigh and Cayce Bell of Creedmoor took second place in the girls 18U division of the third annual Carolina Region Junior Beach Championships last weekend.

Katie McCullough and Katie Smith of Raleigh placed second in the 16U open division, and Raleigh’s Sarah Gasper teamed with Kara Adams of Cary for second place in the 14U open bracket.
