Aspen Luebbe is at it again, this time winning the Grand Island Invitational on Friday.
Luebbe shot one-under par, with a score of 35, beating second-place Katie Strickland from Lincoln Southwest and Lilly Zoeller from Grand Island by two strokes.
Luebbe’s score of 35 ties the Columbus High School record for a 9-hole away course, which was set by Jenny Andrew in 2004.
As a team, the Discoverers placed fourth out of fourteen teams, with a combined score of 179.
The tournament was originally scheduled to be an 18-hole tournament but was shortened to nine due to inclement weather.
The Scotus Central Catholic girls’ golf team had a tough time in their 18-Hole Invite season debut. Playing Thursday at Indianhead Golf Course in Grand Island, the team finished in fifth place (out of 12 teams) shooting a 439. GICC won their own Invite shooting a 399.
Makenzie Enderlin had the best score for the Shamrocks at 105 and was followed by Alaina Dierman who shot a 107
Scotus head coach Tanya Niedbalski didn’t play its best at times.
“We have to be able to handle the pressure and be confident in our shots”, Niedbalski said. “Yes, we are a young, inexperienced team, but much of what happened today we could have controlled”.
Scotus’ next time on the course will be on Thursday at the Lakeview Invite at Quail Run.
