Women’s Golf In Sixth After First Round Of MIAC Championships

Posted on October 7th, 2017 by


BECKER, Minn. – The Gustavus women’s golf team shot a 330 (+42) in round one of the MIAC Championships on Saturday at Pebble Creek Golf Club, which is good for sixth place. Carleton leads the field with a 305, while St. Catherine and Saint Benedict are tied for second at 320.

“We did a great job of coming out of the blocks,” Head Coach Scott Moe said. “We were definitely ready to play from the start. Unfortunately, we did not avoid the big numbers today and had too many doubles and a couple triples.”

Kristen Cash (So., Roseville, Minn.) led the Gusties with a nine-over par 81 and is tied for 14th place out of 52 golfers. McKenzie Swenson (Sr., Buffalo, Minn.) and Ellie Brandt (Jr., Wayzata, Minn.) both shot an 82 and are tied for 17th. Jessica Nelson (Sr., Plymouth, Minn.) carded an 85 and is in 29th, while Morgan Bleyhl (So., Elk River, Minn.) rounded out the squad with an 89 and is tied for 34th.

Ziyi Want of Carleton is the individual leader after posting a 73.

“We will do a better job tomorrow of cleaning up those mistakes, and when we do, we will enjoy a good day,” Moe said. “We’ve got a solid team from top to bottom and I look for us to show that in our scores tomorrow.”
