Women’s Golf Finishes Eighth at IWU Fall Classic
Katie Farrell (Princeton) and Kacy Gruenkemeyer (Salem) led the Cougars to an eighth-place finish at last weekend’s Illinois Wesleyan Fall Classic in Normal.
Farrell carded a final-round 76 to finish tied for 18th. Her 76 tied her with three other golfers for the low round of the day.
Gruenkemeyer fired a team-low 79 in round one of the tournament, helping her to finish 24th overall.
SIUE finished with a team score of 656, 28 strokes behind tournament champion DePauw. Fellow Great Lakes Valley Conference foes Quincy and Indianapolis narrowly finished ahead of the Cougars. Quincy took third at 634 while Indianapolis finished seventh at 654.
SIUE will travel to Owensboro, Ky., for this weekend’s Owensboro Women’s Fall Invitational. The GLVC Tournament is set for Oct. 5-7 in Springfield.
