McGreal ties career low in Independence’s win over Cuyahoga Heights

Emma McGreal tied her career-low score to lead Independence to a 172-214 win at rival Cuyahoga Heights on Tuesday.

McGreal carded a 37 to claim medalist honors.

“I was very happy with my score today,” McGreal said. “I was putting really well, which helped me score. I think with some work on my iron game and my chipping I will be seeing low scores more often.”

Independence improved to 7-1 overall and 6-0 in league play.

McGreal has played a key role in the Blue Devils’ success. She consistently scores in the low 40s and has dipped below the 40-mark several times.

“I am feeling pretty confident in my game right now,” she said. “My swing has been feeling great and I am hitting the ball well. After shooting in the 30s multiple times, I have way more confidence that I can do it again.”

Allie Ksiazka stayed hot as she carded a 41 for the Blue Devils and Morgan Pascarella and Alexis Kovesdi rounded out the scoring with identical 47s.

“Having my teammates consistently score low is probably my biggest motivator,” McGreal said. “Knowing that they are putting in the work helps me do the same. I’m so lucky to have teammates that push me and are always there for me when I have an off day.”

Darci Bundus led Cuyahoga Heights with a 45 while Emma Patterson shot a 53.
