The Gustavus women’s golf team opened its Spring season by winning the 13-team Augustana Spring Invitational which was played at Prairie Green Golf Course in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The Gusties fired a 36-hole team score of 303-307–610 to finish 10 strokes ahead of runner-up Augustana. Taylor Drenttel (74-75) and Katie Schenfeld (73-76) finished in a three-way tie for first place with a total of 149 (+5).
The team’s 36-hole team score of 610 is the second lowest 36-hole total in the program’s history and Saturday’s team score of 303 is the second lowest 18-hole round in the program’s history.
Drenttel’s individual rounds of 74 and 75 are the best two 18 hole rounds of her collegiate career and her 36-hole total of 149 is the finest 36-hole total career, while Schenfeld’s 18-hole total of 73 is the lowest 18-hole round of her career and 149 is the lowest 36-hole total of her career.
