USI women’s golf finishes second with final round run
The University of Southern Indiana women’s golf team shot a school-record 310 Monday to finish second at the Great Lakes Valley Conference Championship at the Timbergate Golf Course in Edinburgh, Indiana. The Screaming Eagles, who had the low round during the second day, finished the tournament with a school-record 632 after shooting a 322 during the first round.
Senior Jennifer Beaman (Evansville, Indiana) shot a 77 Monday to lead the Eagles with a two-round 157, good enough for sixth place. Sophomores Amanda Zehner (Henderson, Kentucky) and Tara Ulmer (Bluffton, Indiana) finished in a tie for eighth after shooting matching 158’s. Zehner recorded a 76 during the closing round while Ulmer finished with a 79 in both the opening and closing rounds.
Freshman Megan Pendergraff (Henderson, Kentucky) finished in a tie for 11th after closing the tournament with a final round 78 and a two-day total of 159. Senior Brandi Irvin (Benton, Illinois) finished in a tie for 19th after shooting a two-day 165.
Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, which shot a blistering 301 during the first day, held onto to win the GLVC team championship after shooting a 314 during the second day of competition. Northern Kentucky University’s Kim Keyer-Scott finished three over par (147) for the tournament to take home the individual championship while SIUE’s Kallie Harrison was named the GLVC Freshman of the Year after finishing second with a freshman-best 148.
The GLVC Championship marks the conclusion of the USI women’s golf team’s fall season. The Eagles will return to action in the spring when they try to qualify for the NCAA II Tournament for the first time in the programs history.
