EVANSVILLE, Ind. – The University of Southern Indiana women's golf team placed third in the Ray Wright/Screaming Eagles Golf Classic at Cambridge Golf Course in Evansville, Indiana. The Screaming Eagles shot a team 323 on Monday after the tournament was shortened to 18-holes due to heavy rains on Sunday.
