Carter has turned in a strong postseason. First, he won the Piedmont Athletic Conference individual championship in the league tournament.
Then he placed second in last week’s Class 1-A Midwest Regional.
Carter, a junior, posted 4-over-par 78 on Monday in the first round of the Class 1-A state tournament at Longleaf Golf & Family Club in Southern Pines. That put him in a three-way tie for second place one shot off the lead going into Tuesday’s final round.
Also in the state tournament, Wheatmore’s Ryan Baynard was in the Class 2-A, with competition at Foxfire Resort & Golf Club’s Red Course in Jackson Springs. He began with a 20-over 92 on Monday in the two-day competition, putting him tied for 64th place.
