COON RAPIDS, Minn. – The Gustavus women’s golf team made a second place finish following the final round of the MIAC Championship on Monday. The Gusties concluded with scores of 157-313-309-779 (+59). St. Catherine won the tournament Championship carding a 764 (+44).

Erin Ericson (Sr., Onalaska, Wis.) led the Gusties finishing as an individual runner-up with four birdies on day three and closing marks of 38-77-73-188 (+1). Joining her in the All-Conference Championship team lineup is Emily Kratz (Sr., Edina) who finished in seventh, carding 38-78-77-193 (+5).

Laurel Ward (Jr., Bozeman, Mont.) wrapped up the weekend with scores of 41-79-78-198 tying in fourteenth, while Sydney Regalado (Sr., Rosemount) carded 40-79-81-200 in eighteenth. Annika Reierson (So., Delano) rounded out the Gustie scoring with a 29th place finish of 44-82-84-210.

“The women continued their great play that they’ve had this fall during the final round of the MIAC championship,” said Coach Randall Stuckey. “Although we started a bit more tight than we had been they turned around their play and had an incredible back nine. They started to have some more fun and their swings were more confident.We couldn’t be  more proud of their effort and patience.  Second place in the conference is very special for the team but in particular are three seniors, Erin Ericson, Emily Kratz, and Sydney Regalado. It was wonderful to see Erin Ericson place runner-up individually and Emily Kratz in seventh place. Together the gals have given each other a wonderful gift that they will remember for a lifetime.”

Gustavus wraps up the fall season Oct. 17-19 at the Golfweek Invitational in Destin, Fla.
