Posted on September 7th, 2012 by

The Gustavus women’s golf team will travel to Waverly, Iowa to take part in the Wartburg College Invitational held Sept. 8-9 at the Centennial Oaks Country Club.

The Gusties are most recently coming off a strong showing in their season debut at the Georgianni Memorial Invite held last weekend in Eau Claire, Wis.  Gustavus finished runner-up with a 324-324-648 (+68), finishing just two strokes behind Washington University (Mo.).

Team captains Sam Falk (So., Glenwood, Minn.) and Kayleigh Dittes (Sr., Eden Prairie, Minn.)led the team with a third and seventh place finish, respectively.  Falk shot a 156 (+11), while Dittes fired a 159 (+14). The Glenwood product also earned MIAC Women’s Golf Athlete-of-the-Week honors for her performance.

Head Coach Scott Moe’s squad is making its first trip back to the Wartburg Invite since the 2010-11 season.  The Gusties finished third that year after shooting a two-day 674 (+98).  Dittes and Jessica Skaare (Jr., Blue Earth, Minn.) are the only two remaining players on the team who played in that tournament.  Dittes shot a 176 (+32) to finish 25th and Skaare shot a 195 (+51) take place 60th.

First round results will be posted to the Gustavus Athletics website following Saturday’s play.
