With an individual and team MIAC Championship in her pocket, as well as a berth in NCAA Championships secured, Katie Schenfeld did what she always does this past weekend…play consistent, solid, mistake-free golf. Standout women’s golfer Katie Schenfeld earned MIAC Women’s Golf Athlete of the Week honors for the fourth time this season following her performance at the Huskie Invitational. She finished in a three-way tie for third place at the 12-team 75-player tournament after shooting a 152 (+8), putting a finishing touch on the fall season of her senior year and solidifying herself as one of the top golfers in the nation. The Gusties went on to take seventh place at the tournament with a two-day team score of 642 (+66).
Facing a field comprised of Division I and II golfers, Schenfeld fired a 76 on both days, finishing two strokes behind champion Carly Arison of Brown University. Schenfeld was joined by April Ohlendorf and Ann Vdolyak of Loyola University in third place. Katie is currently the top golfer in the MIAC with a total of 1002 strokes for an average of 77.1 per round.
The Huskie Classic was the final event of the 2010 fall season for the Gustavus women’s golf team. Because the squad won its third straight MIAC title earlier in the month, Gustavus has secured a spot in the NCAA Division III Women’s Golf National Championships, which will be held in the spring season.
