PV, Gilbert, Sumner-Fred, Grundy Center win state team titles

Consistency is key in the game of golf. Just ask Morgan Rupp, the Linn-Mar sophomore whose steady play led to her winning the Class 4A individual state golf title on Friday.

Rupp shot a 2-under 140 this week to win large-class medalist honors at Otter Creek Golf Course in Ankeny, carding back-to-back 70s on Thursday and Friday. That consistency led to a 1-shot victory over Cedar Rapids Washington’s Jane Petersen.

Petersen, another sophomore, held a 2-shot lead after a 3-under 68 in Thursday’s opening round, during which she collected five birdies in an eight-hole span and finished with six total for the day-one lead.
