Roland Park's Erin Golueke is a long hitter off the tee, and she was often 10 or 20 yards ahead of her foursome in Tuesday's Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland golf championships at Fox Hollow Golf Course in Timonium.

Golueke entered the final round three strokes ahead of teammate Meredith Birely, and she continued to pull away from the field in the championship's final nine holes. Golueke had six pars and one birdie to finish with a 37 in the final round and a two-day total of 78, ahead of Bryn Mawr's Katie Song (85), teammate Alina Jong (87), Bryn Mawr's Nancy Swindell (89) and Birely (90). The Reds won their fifth consecutive championship, and Golueke earned her second consecutive title.

"Erin Golueke today was phenomenal," Roland Park coach Tara Kramer said. "I'm so proud of her. [Hitting long] has always been the strength of her game, especially on a course like this that is a little shorter than most of the courses. Our team is very disciplined, and we stick to our plan. The girls are hard workers, and they have a lot of trust in one another."

Bryn Mawr was second at 155, ahead of Mercy (181), Notre Dame Prep (182) and McDonogh (186).

Anna Casterline of Catholic won the B Conference title with a score of 87 through 18 holes, ahead of Seton Keough's Abby Brown (91), teammates Gabi DeJuliis (96) and Kelly MacKenzie (98) and Mount de Sales' Elizabeth McCollum (99). Catholic also won the team championship with a score of 170, ahead of Mount de Sales (183), Garrison Forest (187), St. Paul's School for Girls (192) and Seton Keough (201).

Casterline said her second shots were the key to winning the title after entering the day tied with McCollum and one stroke ahead of Brown.

"It was lot of fun because I had a lot of time to talk to all the girls," Casterline said. "It was just fun playing. I was kind of familiar with the course."

Golueke, on the other hand, used her power off the tee to set up shorter shots with her irons. She had five consecutive pars and then finished her career with a birdie. She will play golf and squash at Franklin & Marshall next season.

"That's usually how I play my game — hitting it long," Golueke said. "Today, I was doing a good job hitting my drives. We all got along very well this year. I think we held out pretty well."
