Women's Golf Teams Victorious at Home Invite
By: Ashley Hofer, Sports Information Student
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (UWECBlugolds.com) - The third-ranked Blugold women's golf teams continued their weekend success and claimed first and fourth places at the annual Doug Georgianni Memorial Invite at Wild Ridge Golf Course.
After today’s second round of competition, the top four teams held the same finishing positions. The UW-Eau Claire Blue team won the 21-team event with a total stroke count of 645, 65 strokes above par. Gustavus Adolphus (Minn.) and UW-Whitewater finished second and third with 665 and 688 total strokes, respectively. The UW-Eau Claire Gold team was just one stroke back of the Warhawks, tallying 689 strokes to bring home a respectable fourth place.
Today’s win for the Blugolds was the first time since 2002 they have won the event. Since 2004, Gustavus, the second-ranked team in the country, has won the Blugolds’ opening invite four times. St. Thomas (Minn.) won the two other times in that span.
Eau Claire dominated the top 10 individual golfers. Gustavus golfer Katie Schenfeld won the individual competition with a score of 157 total strokes for 12 above par, but Blugold Sara Mattes (Jr.-La Crosse, Wis./Central), who led the field yesterday, finished second just one stroke off the pace. Four additional Eau Claire golfers earned spots fourth through seventh. Katie Maurer (Jr.-Forest Lake, Minn./Convent of the Visitation) and Emily Swift (Jr.-Onalaska, Wis.) tied for fourth with 162 strokes, Catherine Wagner (So.-Austin, Minn.) finished sixth with 163 strokes and Jamie Hauser tied for seventh with 165 strokes.
Next weekend the golfers will hit the road for the Wartburg Invitational at Centennial Oaks Golf Course. The two-day competition begins Saturday in Waverly, Iowa.
