By: Kevin Meinholz, Sports Information Director
HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Fla. (UWECBlugolds.com) - The UW-Eau Claire women's golf team tied for its best finish as the Blugolds took third place out of 20 teams at the 2010 NCAA Division III Championship at Mission Inn Golf and Tennis Resort.
The four-day event, which the Blugolds found themselves in second place after each of the first three days, ended with the Blugolds shooting 1,307. Methodist University (N.C.) won its 13th straight NCAA title as it finished with 1,282 strokes. Gustavus Adolphus College (Minn.), who the Blugolds were tied with coming into the final day, had the round-four low of 316 strokes to finish with 1,301 overall to take second.
Emily Swift (So.-Onalaska, Wis.) had a great day for the Blugolds, shooting 76 (+3) and tying for a round-four low with Rhodes College's Stephanie Mingos. Swift finished with 335 strokes during the championship to tie for 27th place.
Katie Maurer (So.-Forest Lake, Minn./Convent of the Visitation) recorded 328 strokes as she finished in 20th place, seven spots better than a season ago when the Blugolds took sixth at the championship.
This was the 10th straight season the Blugolds competed at nationals. The third place finish the Blugolds achieved was their best finish ever under coach John Means (previously was fifth in 2006...his first season). In 2005, the Blugolds tied for third with 1,337 strokes.
