Farrell Sets Another
Women’s Golf Record
New records once again.
With such a young team and a young program, record-setting is becoming a regular occurrence.
The SIUE women’s golf program is in its third year and is stacked with eight freshmen.
Freshman Katie Farrell (Princeton) broke the school record she set two weeks ago shooting an 80 this past weekend in the second round of the Indianapolis Invitational. Farrell also tied another school record she set a couple of weeks ago by finishing with a 167 in 36 holes. Farrell finished tied for ninth overall at the Indianapolis Invitational.
“She came back well the second day,” said Coach Larry Bennett. “Once she gets it going, she plays well. I am very happy with her performance.”
The team finished seven strokes behind the defending GLVC champion Indianapolis last weekend.
“It is a great improvement very quickly. We finished tied with Bellarmine for the first time ever and beat Southern Indiana and Northern Kentucky.”
Freshman Kacy Gruenkemeyer (Salem) shot a 177 (87-90) to finish 24th while sophomore transfer Nonie Ehlke (Highland) shot a 179 (87-92) and tied for 31st. Junior Spring Riley (Salem) tied for 35th with a 180 (89-91) and freshman Kristi Novak (Highland) tied for 44th with a 188 (92-96).
The Cougars now prepare for the Great Lakes Valley Conference Championships on Oct. 9 and 10 in Columbus, Ind., at the Timber Gate Golf Course.
“It is going to be a dogfight next week. It will be much more exciting than in previous years. It is really anybody’s tournament.”
