Women’s Golf in Sixth at Wartburg Invite

Posted on September 8th, 2018 by


WAVERLY, Iowa – The women’s golf team traveled to Waverly, Iowa to take part in the Wartburg Women’s Fall Invite on Saturday. The Gusties tallied a 325 on the first day which put them in sixth place out of 16 teams.

When asked about the day, coach Randy Stuckey said, “We did not have a good start today and had trouble with the wind. We had some errant shots find some thick fescue, rough, and a few hazards throughout the round. Our lag putting was not sharp on the big greens.”

Erin Ericson (Fy., Onalaska, Wis.) was the low scorer for the Gusties as she shot a 77 which was good for an 11th place finish on day one. The second low-scorer for Gustavus was Morgan Bleyhl (Jr., Elk River, Minn.) who posted a 79 on the day. Sydney Regalado (Fy., Rosemount, Minn.) shot an 84 for the Gusties and Kennedy Sommerfeld (Sr., Litchfield, Minn.) and Emily Kratz (Fy., Edina, Minn.) each shot 85. Ellie Brandt (Sr., Wayzata, Minn.) rounded out the scoring with an 87.

“We are much better than we showed today and I know tomorrow will be a better day after becoming familiar with the course today,” said Stuckey.

The Gusties will resume play tomorrow morning in Waverly.
