Xavier High School - Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Olberding's ace helps Saints win title

Xavier High School junior Lisa Olberding had two reasons to celebrate at Ellis Park Golf Course Monday afternoon.

Olberding collected the first hole-in-one of her golfing career and the Saints topped Linn-Mar for the team championship at the 2012 Kennedy Invitational.

Olberding used a pitching wedge to ace the 98-yard 14th hole.

"It bounced right in front of the cup and then it just rolled in," she said. "I didn't believe it at first, but then I started freaking out a bit."
