Posted on September 11th, 2022 by


WAVERLY, Iowa – The Gustavus women’s golf team Sunday placed 12th out of 22 teams at the Wartburg Fall Invite, hosted at Prairie Links Golf Course. The Gusties had a 35-stroke improvement from the first round to the second, finishing with a total of 347-312-659 (+83). Illinois Wesleyan won the event at 308-290-598.

Emily Kolb (Fy., Sioux Falls, S.D.) led the Gusties with a two-round total of 86-76-162, tying for 53rd place. Laurel Ward (Sr., Bozeman, Mont.) and Annika Reierson (Jr., Delano) both tied for 74th. Ward shot an 86-80-166, while Reierson shot an 84-82-166. Kristin Martens (Sr., Sartell) tied for 79th at 91-77-168 and Zada Olig (Sr., Wayzata) tied for 91st at 92-79-171.

The women responded tremendously today with a great round of golf,” Assistant Coach Randy Stuckey said. “We played through rain through the entire round yesterday and we didn’t bring our best game to the course. They showed their resiliency with very good scores from everyone. From the results of the last two weekends we need to learn to start playing well during the first round and not waiting for day two.” 

The Gusties compete next weekend at the D3 Classic in Hastings, Minn.
