FORT MADISON – Holy Trinity Catholic’s Ali Robu carded a 90 on the Crusader’s home course at Sheaffer Memorial Golf Course Monday afternoon to win the Southeast Iowa Superconference girls golf meet.
Robu led a field of 51 edging New London’s Taylor Phillips by one shot for the medalist honors. Phillips shot a 45 on the back nine, one stroke better than Robu, but her 46 on the front nine included a double bogey on the par 3 No. 5 that gave Robu the meet.
Robu carded a birdie on the 298 yard par 4 hole No. 2 to highlight a 44 on the front nine, which was one better than Columbus’ Jobie Lekwa. The HTC senior recorded 2 pars on the 18-hole event to go along with the birdie, while putting together a string of eight straight bogeys coming in.
Lekwa took 3rd place overall with a 96 tied with Danville’s Natalie Wilcox.
Central Lee’s Karissa Moeller shot a 132 to tie for 28th place overall. Ellie Herdrich carded a 145, Mercedes Kirchner came in with a 159 and Emma Harvey had a 256 for the Lady Hawks who finished 9th overall with a 692.
Robu was Holy Trinity’s only participant so the Crusaders didn’t figure in the team scoring. New London won the team scoring with a 404 figuring the top four golfers on each team.
