Powell won her first match 4-and-3, but succumbed to eventual champion Alexandria Farnsworth in the semifinals.Powell played in the 12-17-year-old division, the home-school student from Warren County proved from day one she was one of the top golfers at McCabe Golf Course in Nashville.Powell played the 18-hole course at one-over, finishing at 74. Her round tied her for the sixth-best score of all players in the event and moved her into the match-play tournament with some of the top golfers in the state, including Farnsworth.Farnsworth also shot 74, but a scorecard tiebreaker gave Powell the No.
