Lady Leopards Shoot All-Time Road Low in Opener at Central
Louisville 156, Canton Central Catholic 196
The Louisville Leopards Girls Golf Team opened up the 2020 campaign picking up right where they left off during their record breaking season a year ago. Louisville shot an all-time road low in defeating the host Canton Central Catholic Crusaders 156-196 at Arrowhead Golf Club Wednesday.
Senior Madison Gruber and Junior Erin Strouse both shot a team best 38 to lead the Lady Leopards. Senior Katie Bice followed close behind by shooting a 39 and Junior Alexis Ralston carded a 41 to round out the top 4 scores. Other varsity scores included Junior Abby Davis who tallied 45 and Freshman Peyton Biery who debuted with a 49.
The Leopards have now defeated the Crusaders in their past 8 meetings dating back to 2015. Louisville now leads the all-time series 10-3 overall, which includes a 3-2 mark in matches played on Central’s home course. Second year Head Coach Michele Vlacovsky is now 3-0 coaching against her alma mater with the win.
The Lady Leopards 9-hole team score of 156 is a record low for a road match. The previous low mark on an away course was obtained at Sable Creek last year when Louisville shot 161 in a tri-match with Lake and Wadsworth. The 156 team score is the sixth best mark in team history, only behind five home course matches at Pleasant View Golf Club set by the 2019 squad.
