Trible, Hartwiger dominate at Alabama Women's Championships
Taylor Trible of Birmingham claimed the 89th Alabama Women’s State Amateur Championship title, winning 1 up against Molly Brown Davidson of Birmingham at The Shoals in Muscle Shoals, Ala. on Thursday.

“I really don’t have any words,” Trible said. “My dad and I just started crying together. We had a great time together, I love him!”

“I’m trying to get back into competitive golf now, after not playing for a couple of years,” said the 10-time Alabama Women's Amateur champion. “I see this as a challenge between me and myself. This week was good, I feel better!”

Semifinals opened the morning of the Women’s Amateur, Davidson defeating Sophie Burks of Tallassee in 19 holes.

Trible won 1 up against Kelsey Carstens of Florence and entered her final match charged up.
