SARTELL, Minn. – The Gustavus women’s golf team tied for fifth place out of 11 teams at the Saint Benedict Invite, played Saturday and Sunday at Blackberry Ridge. The Gusties shot 333 on Saturday and followed with 329 on Sunday for a total of 662 (+86).

Bethel won the event at 630, Carleton took second at 645, and St. Catherine placed third with a 654. Alyssa Akiyama of Carleton won medalist honors with a 74-77-151 (+7).

Erin Ericson (So., Onalaska, Wis.) continued to lead the Gusties with a 77-78-155 (+11) for a third place tie out of 71 golfers. Emily Kratz (So., Edina, Minn.) tied for 15th at 79-85-164. Sydney Regalado (So., Rosemount, Minn.) improved by six strokes on the second day, posting an 89-83-172 for a 31st place tie. Lanie Altmann (Sr., Olivia, Minn.) rounded out the scoring for the Black and Gold, bettering her first round by 11 strokes, finishing at 94-83-177 for 41st place.

Erin had a great tournament for us finishing in third place,” Head Coach Scott Moe said. “We needed better depth this weekend to compete. We really need to focus our practice time this week on our short game. If we can tidy that up before next weekend’s event in Wartburg, I like our chances. We still have a very young team and working through some anxieties during tournament play. We will be better in our next outing.”

Gustavus travels to Waverly, Iowa next Saturday and Sunday to compete in the Wartburg Invite.
