CONYERS — Newton’s Ally Black claimed the City Amateur title at Cherokee Run Golf Course on Sunday afternoon, defeating Eastside’s Caroline Culbertson by nine strokes.

A Day 1 score of 90 on Saturday for Black was followed up by a front-nine 42 Sunday before the tournament was called due to weather. Her 132 total was good enough to take the title over Culbertson’s 141.

Mekenzie Love took third in the division with a two-day total of 156. Culbertson’s net score of 112 edged out Black’s net of 115, a score reached with golfer handicaps.
