July 14, 2002|By SPECIAL TO THE SUN

Karen Smith struggled down the stretch with a string of bogeys, but had enough left at the end to hold off Arlene Zamora by a stroke and win the annual Ladies Publinx championship at Forest Park Golf Course yesterday.

Smith posted 36-41--77 to 43-35--78 for Zamora, runner-up for the second straight year.

Smith, from Chestertown and the University of Maryland GC, included one birdie in her par-matching front nine, then went on to have 28 putts in her 6-over-par round. Zamora, who plays from Pine Ridge, was 8-over through the first 10 holes then settled down to play the last eight at 1-under.

Carol Wright (82) and Arlene James (90) earned low gross in the other flights, while the net leaders were Elain House (66), Debra Fox (62) and Bonnie Kistner (62) in the 52-player field.
