GREENFIELD — The 2013 Hancock County Girls Golf Championship was not Cassie Rooks’ finest moment.
A nine-hole 54 put her 19 shots behind the leader, tied for 17th overall out of 20 competitors.
It was a performance out of whack with the New Palestine junior’s natural talent. Tuesday, Rooks – and her squad – flashed their potential to capture first-place honors at the 2014 county tourney at Arrowhead Golf Course.
Rooks’ even-par 36 was good enough to edge teammate and two-time defending champ Abby Poole (37) for the individual crown.
