Girls Golf Clinches Share of NBC Regular Season Title
The Louisville Lady Leopards Girls Golf team defeated the host Marlington Dukes 189-214 Monday at Tannenhauf Golf Course. At Carroll Meadows, Minerva defeated Carrollton 188-205 to force a two-way tie for first place in the Final NBC Girls Golf Regular Season Standings. The Lady Leopards are now 12-3 overall and 7-1 in NBC play.
Katie Warga finished with the top score at Marlington by shooting a 45. In fact, all four Lady Leopards shot lower than the Dukes top player. These also included Sierra Townsend (46), Gina McVey (48), Summer Walters (50).
Earlier in the season, McVey finished with the top Lady Leopards score in home matches against Minerva and Canton Central Catholic. Their 181-200 victory over the Lions back on August 27 played a key rule in forcing the tie in the final standings.
Townsend achieved the top score in the next five matches and this also included a home match against Dover where she shot a 36. During this stretch Louisville defeated Carrollton 180-217, Dover 180-182, and then defeated both Central Catholic and host Salem in a Tri-Meet 180-181-214.
The Crusaders shot the same score earlier in the year when they defeated the Leopards 181-185 on September 4. The only other Louisville loss came at GlenOak where they fell 181-166 on September 10.
The Lady Leopards will wrap up the regular season today when they host the Perry Panthers. They will then compete at the NBC Tournament on Thursday, September 19 at Great Trails Golf Course before competing in the Stark County Championship Meet on Saturday, September 21 at Alliance. Since the Minerva & Louisville are tied in the final standings, Thursday will decide who will be crowned NBC Champion.
