Two collegiate rounds, two USI records for Zehner
USI places 12th at Cardinal Classic
University of Southern Indiana freshman Amanda Zehner (Henderson, Kentucky) posted her second school record in her second round of collegiate golf as the Screaming Eagles finished 12th at the Cardinal Classic at the Players Club in Yorktown, Indiana. Zehner was USI highest finisher, tying for 15th.
The tournament was hosted by Ball State University and featured 11 NCAA Division I teams.
Zehner, who set the USI single round record with a 75 on Saturday, set the USI 36-hole record of 154 with a second-day 79. Laura Compton set the old record of 158 (78-80) in the 1999 GLVC Tournament.
As a team, USI improved with a team 336 in the final round of action for a two-day 677. The final round also saw three of the Eagles improve their scores.
Junior Brandi Irvin (Benton, Illinois) followed Zehner with an 80 on Sunday, three strokes better than her opening round and tying for 34th with a 163. Also improving was junior Jennifer Beaman (Evansville, Indiana), who erased six shots from her 90 on Saturday to shoot an 84 on Sunday and freshman Julia Sabatine (Muncie, Indiana), who dropped nine strokes off her 102 in the first round to shoot a 93 in the final round.
The Eagles will host their only home tournament of the year on Sunday and Monday, September 15-16, at Helfrich Golf Course.
