Grande Meadows Junior golfer Erin Lundrigan followed up her 3rd Provincial Junior Ladies Golf title with her first Provincial Ladies Golf Championship in Grand Falls yesterday. After winning the Junior title quite handily on her home course last week, Lundrigan headed to Gander as one of the favorites, having placed second to Lacey Cribb, former Grande Meadows Junior golfer. And Erin didn't disappoint jumping out to a 5 stroke lead on day 1 with a score of 78 being the only lady to break 80. She followed up on Day 2 with a 76 to take an 11 stroke lead over former champion Kathleen Jean of Harmon Seaside Links in Stephenville. Jean managed to put a little pressure on Lundrigan on the final day shooting a 76 while Erin coasted with an 82 to win by 5. Gale Roberts and Janet Mills of Baly Hally finished 3rd and 4th over 30 strokes behind the leaders. Grande Meadows Junior runnerup, Catherine Kenway finished in 6th placed and clubmate Debbie Kenway participated in her first Provincial Ladies Championship.
