    North’s Lauren Iannetta sets school record in winning WRC tournament

    - Advertisment -

    North junior Lauren Iannetta is peaking at the right as she set a school record in winning the Western Reserve Conference tournament at Erie Shores Golf Course on Thursday.

    Iannetta carded a 71 to claim medalist honors. She beat out Chardon’s Jocelyn Gaggiania for the top spot by a whopping 15 strokes.

    “It was very exciting,” Iannetta said. “I wasn’t expecting to shoot the school record to end the conference season. The 18-hole school record was definitely something I’ve thought about but wasn’t able to achieve until today.”

    Iannetta’s previous best 18-hole round was a 76.

    On Thursday, she put it all together to etch her name into the school’s record book.

    “On the front nine it was my putting and on the back nine it was a combination of my tee shots and putting that helped me shoot well,” she said. “By shooting a 71 today, it definitely gives me confidence going into the sectional tournament.”

    With a career-best round to close out the regular season, Iannetta hopes to ride this momentum all the way to the state tournament.

    “My goal is to make it all the way to states and if I continue to work hard and stay focused, I think I will have a good chance,” she said.

    North finished second to Kenston in the team race.

    The Bombers finished with 372 strokes while the Rangers finished with 402. Chardon was third with 404, Mayfield finished fourth with 405, and South placed fifth with 439 strokes.

    North’s Jenna Berardinelli placed 12th with a 104, Olivia Hopper was 15th with a 110, and Reghan Boulous rounded out the scoring with a 117, good for 20th place. Bryanna Toothman shot a 128 to place 26th.
