Siler City, NC - Johnson York of East Surry took medalist honors and led his team to the team championship on Tuesday in the ninth annual North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 1-A men's golf championship at the Siler City Country Club.

York had rounds of 70 and 77 for a 147 total, and the three-over par mark was good for a one-shot edge over Craig Wood of Siler City Jordan-Matthews. Benjy Davey of West Montgomery was third, two shots back, and Tommy Gibson of East Surry won a three-way playoff for fourth place.

East Surry¹s team total of 610 was good for a 14-shot margin over runner-up Jordan-Matthews. It was the best team score ever recorded in the separate 1-A tournament, eclipsing a mark of 614 Jordan-Matthews shot in the 2004 1-A event at Longleaf.

The best four of six individual scores count toward the team total.

From 1986 through '97, the Class A and AA golfers competed for a single title in a combined tournament. A total of 84 golfers competed in the two-day tournament.
