Women’s Golf Concludes Season With Fourth Place Finish At Carleton Invite Posted on April 29th, 2018 by


NORTHFIELD, Minn. – The Gustavus women’s golf team wrapped up its season Sunday with a fourth place finish at the Carleton Invitational, played at the Northfield Golf Club. The Gusties shot a two-round total of 335-328-663. Host Carleton won the event with a score of 615.

McKenzie Swenson (Sr., Buffalo, Minn.) and Jessica Nelson (Sr., Plymouth, Minn.) ended their collegiate careers today. Swenson tallied an 82-74-156 to finish in a tie for fifth place, while Nelson posted an 82-85-167 to tie for 21st.

“It’s always mixed emotions on the last day of the golf season,” Head Coach Scott Moe said. “You see a couple of seniors in McKenzie and Jess and reflect on everything they had to do with our program over the last four years. It was great to see their family and friends come out and cheer them on over the final round. McKenzie birdied her final hole and played the last five holes two-under par, to finish with an amazing 74. What a great way to go out. By the way, our team battled. The spring was really tough on everyone. When you travel south playing a tournament and come home to practice inside and get ready for your next tournament, it’s really tough mentally, but proud of how we responded each week. I just want to thank Mac and Jess for their time over the last four years and wish them nothing but the best as they take on their next adventure.”

Kristen Cash (So., Roseville, Minn.) tied for 17th with a score of 82-84-166, while Ellie Brandt (Jr., Wayzata, Minn.) took 31st at 89-85-174 and Morgan Bleyhl (So., Elk River, Minn.) placed 39th at 91-89-180.
