The Starter Level
The ISU Women's golf program entered two teams in a tournament for the first time. For the last tournament of the fall season, Coach Greg Towne took his entire roster on the road and entered two separate teams. The entire squad responded well to this opportunity and registered its best team finish of the fall season.

In college golf, teams consist of 5 players with the four best scores for the 18 holes counting in the team score.

On the "A" team, which finished second were seniors Kristen Hobbs, Iyoun Chew and Molly Lee along with sophomores Briana LeMaire and Yang Tai.

The "B" squad was led by senior Chelsea Morrow with fellow senior Grace Welty playing her first match of the season. Rounding out that squad was sophomore Eliza Baker and freshmen Sophia Florek and Rosalie DiNunzio.

It was a 36 hole/two day event at the Oak Meadow Country Club north of Evansville. The rolling, tree lined course played at a bit over 6,100 yards and par 72.

In the final team standings, the Sycamores were edged out by a single shot by the University of Northern Iowa to finish second. The "B" squad, which was 20 shots further behind, finished 10 shots out of fifth place as Bellarmine bested them by 11 shots on day two to move up to fourth.

The Sycamores placed six players in the top 21 finishers for the event led by Molly Lee who tied for second place at +6. Iyoun Chew and Sophia Florek tied for seventh place at +9; however, Florek's score led team "B". Reliable senior Kristen Hobbs finished 13th at +12 followed directly by Chelsea Morrow at +13 for a 14th place finish. Briana LeMaire shot a solid +6 on day two to finish in 21st place at +16.

Coach Towne has assembled a team of considerable depth and the players are pushing each other to improve this fall with expectations that the improvement will continue through the winter months.

After the initial posting of the final scores, ISU noted at Iyoun Chew had birdied her final hole but the person inputting her score to the electronic system had recorded a par. This one shot improvement moved the Sycamores "A" team into a tie with the UNI Panthers.

On the first playoff hole, ISU recorded a birdie by sophomore Yang Tai, three pars and a bogey to go ONE under par. UNI's best four scores were a +2.

Congratulations to Coach Greg Towne and his pair of determined teams which had a great tournament in Evansville.
