NORTON: Overall excellence carried Kent Roosevelt and North Royalton to team championships Wednesday at Barberton Brookside Country Club.

But Highland senior Alicia Porvasnik posted the best individual score of the day with a 1-over-par 73 to claim the Suburban League American Conference Postseason Tournament medalist title, and Hudson junior Jenn David shot a 75 to take the National Conference crown.

Both winning teams were 19 shots ahead of their closest pursuers. Roosevelt (332) defeated second-place Highland (351) among the six American Conference schools, and North Royalton (338) bettered Hudson (357) on the eight-school National Conference side.

Porvasnik posted birdies on Nos. 5, 13 and 15 and made four bogeys during her round.

“I feel pretty good,” she said. “I missed some small putts on the front nine so it could have been better but I feel good about it.

“My driver looked really good. I was in the middle or just off the fairway so that really helped. And I made a lot of good putts at the end.”

She plans to play golf in college next year, but said she hasn’t decided which one she will attend.

“We had a great performance today from Alicia,” Highland coach Mary Becker said. “It’s great to see her playing that kind of golf as she enters the state tournament.”

Porvasnik shot a 74 to lead Highland to last year’s Suburban League postseason tourney title, and her 73 Wednesday was 2 strokes better than Barberton senior Alea Griffith, who tied David for the day’s second best score with a 75.

Griffith, who usually competes for the Magics’ boys team, was the only member of her team.

Another day of unseasonably hot weather resulted in hard, dry conditions and wind increased as play continued, contributing to higher scores than might normally be expected, especially later in the day.

David persevered, though, and finished 2 shots better than Wadsworth junior Secilia Ho.

“I didn’t play as well as I wanted to play but I played well so that’s all I can ask for,” said David, who shot a 2-under 35 on the front nine and favored a 5-wood off the tee all day. “The back was not very good. I started out bogey-bogey and on the third hole I had a double [bogey] because I hit it out of bounds.

“It was very hot, though. A lot of water. I think I drank five or six bottles of water.”

Hudson coach J.T. Goodson said he carried a cooler of water in his cart “to keep everyone hydrated.”

Roosevelt was paced by junior Grace Thompson’s 80, followed by senior Hannah Thomas and sophomore Emma Picicco (both 82) and junior Lauren Garner (88).

“Somebody picks somebody up every match,” Roosevelt coach Bryan Harvey said. “Our top five are always right around the mid-to-low 80s, so it’s definitely more of a team rather than having a standout or two standouts that we’ve had in the past, so real consistent.

“They’re playing smart golf, not making mistakes out on the course and they’re working hard.”

North Royalton was similar in its results, with four players between 79 and 89. The Bears dominated the larger school National Conference this season, winning the Suburban League preseason tournament (also at Brookside) and placing first during the regular season.

Senior Megan Grospitch (79), junior Paige Rider (82), senior Kaytie Kieklak (88) and sophomore Alexa Belardo (89) were their top scorers Wednesday.

“I’m surprised how low our score was,” North Royalton coach Nick Neumeister said. “We did win the preseason tournament at 350 I think it was, so to come out with a 338 is pretty special. And I think four of the girls actually shot their own personal lows today.”
