Let it pour, Kaitlyn Hanna said.

The Omaha Westside sophomore repeated Tuesday as the Metro Conference girls golf champion.

While the worst of the downpours at Elmwood Park came after the round ended, the field still got soaked.

“I tend to play better a little bit in the rain, so that helped me the last few holes,’’ Hanna said.

She shot a 3-over 71, six strokes higher than her winning 3-under 65 for her school’s invitational Monday at Elmwood. The tournament record for Elmwood is 68, so the 65 could be the course record for high school play.

Runner-up Katie Ruge, with a 74, led Millard North to its first Metro title since 2015. The Mustangs’ Jazmine Taylor was third with a 76, eight strokes better than Monday, and Malainey Wiemers was 14th with an 86.

Izabella Pesicka and Erika Headlee had 91s as Millard North’s four-golfer score of 327 was 13 strokes better than the 340s by Westside, Papillion-La Vista and Omaha Marian.

Hanna had four birdies after collecting six on Monday. She said she missed more greens.

“I played a really good round yesterday, which I was hoping to do today. So I just have to kind of play the same way because I don’t want it to get to me mentally, thinking it’s all wet out here,’’ she said. “I just tried to do the same as if it were a sunny day.”

She is the second player to win Metro as a freshman and sophomore, following Nia Station of Omaha Burke in 2013-14. Station also won as a senior. There have been no four-time Metro champions in girls golf and only three three-timers.
