Ursuline turned in two of the day’s top individual scores and rolled to an easy Division II girls’ victory Tuesday in the LHSAA state golf championships.
The Lions turned in a final-round 11-over 155 score, thanks to the 76 of Sweden Ledet and the 79 of Ariana Blagrove, over the 5,760-yard par-72 The Wetlands Golf Club course in Lafayette. That was good enough for a 14-stroke margin in the final round and a 317 total, which was 27 strokes ahead of runner-up Ouachita Christian.
Ledet’s score tied for the third-best in the final round and Blagrove’s score was the seventh-best, helping Ursuline move up from its runner-up spot of last year.
Morgan Guepet of St. Martin’s posted the low score in either of the girls’ divisions Tuesday with a 2-under-par 70. That, added to her even-par 72 on Monday which gave her a two-stroke lead, left her at two-under 142 and with her second straight Division II individual title.
Elizabeth Lapeyre of Newman finished second for the second straight year, posting a one-under 71 on Tuesday and finishing three strokes back at 145. She also helped Newman finish third in the team race with a 171 on Tuesday and a 358 team score, 14 back of Ouachita Christian’s runner-up 344 total.
Episcopal-Baton Rouge was fourth at 363 and St. Martin’s fifth at 364.
Samantha Schultz of Christ Episcopal, competing as an individual, finished third with a final-round 77 and a two-day 152 total.
In Division I, Sarah Meral of St. Scholastica helped her team to a third-place finish (361) and also claimed the individual title, posting a 1-under-par 73 on Tuesday to go with her opening 75. Meral, last year’s runner-up, finished two strokes ahead of defending Division I champion Sydney Moss of C. E. Byrd with her 148 total.
Moss, the first-day leader after an opening 74, posted a 76 on Tuesday for the runner-up spot with a 150 total. Teagan Connors, playing as an individual from Lusher, finished third with a 79-75—154 score.
In the Division I team competition, Barbe posted the day’s low score to add to its 12-stroke first-round lead and claimed the title.
