Girls Golf in the Driver’s Seat After Senior Night Win
Louisville 192, Minerva 192, 5th Card
The Louisville Lady Leopards Girls Golf Senior Night could not be scripted any better. Louisville and visiting Minerva battled to a 192-192 tie Thursday Evening at Skyland Pines in a key match to decide the NBC Regular Season Champion. The Lady Leopards prevailed via a 5th card tie-breaker to improve to 13-2 overall and 9-0 in the NBC.
Sierra Townsend shot a match-low 45 to lead Louisville. Senior Contributions came from Gabby Spehar who shot a 48 and Bailey Spring who shot a 50. Abby Beaver also had the second best Leopards score at 49 and her sister Alexis Beaver proved to be the deciding factor by shooting a career best 51. Alexis Beaver’s fifth card score edged Rhylee Trussel’s fifth-best Minerva score by just 2 strokes.
The Lions (11-3, 7-3) were led by Alexa Daulbaugh who shot a team-best 46. Logan Pottdorf 47, Sydni Hertel 49, and Abby Hall 50 rounded out the top four scores for Minerva.
With the victory, the Lady Leopards have now won 15 straight conference matches and have put themselves in prime position to win the NBC Regular Season Crown. Louisville is now 7-3 against Minerva all-time, which includes a 5-0 mark at home. The Lady Leopards travel to Marlington on Monday, have a Tri-Match with Canton South at Carrollton on Tuesday, and compete at the NBC Tournament on Thursday at Zoar Golf Course.
Following the match, Louisville honored their two Seniors Gabby Spehar & Bailey Spring. Leopard Nation would like to personally thank these two athletes for all their hard work into making the Louisville Girls Golf Program what it is today and wish them the best of luck on their journey ahead!
UP NEXT: The Lady Leopards will next travel to Marlington to take on the Dukes on Monday, September 21. Tee-Time is set for 4:00 PM at Tannehauf Golf Course.
