In the women’s individual race, Emily Romancew from the John Abbott Islanders holds a two-stroke lead over Elizabeth Labbé from Champlain St. Lawrence and Becky Martin from the Rattlers. Romancew shot an impressive three over par 75.
“I feel good. With the wind conditions today, it was tougher than we thought but it was fun. I was in a fun group. I know I need to stay patient with three rounds left-patience and grind. I can’t get too ahead of myself. It’s a tough golf course,” says Romancew.
Emily Romancew is a John Abbott Science student with a bright future ahead in both school and sport.
Described by her golf coach Joel Fitleberg as extremely supportive of her teammates with a super attitude, Emily won the highest golfing honour in the province last week – bringing home the provincial championship.
She is off to Medicine Hat Alberta this weekend for the CCAA National Championships. The five day competition is taking place at the Desert Blume Golf Club which will “…test every aspect of a golfer’s game…” according to the tournament host Medicine Hat College.
Stay tuned as we follow Emily and her incredible career!
