SIUE Women’s Golf Finishes Sixth At GLVC Tournament
EDWARDSVILLE, ILL.- The Southern Illinois University Edwardsville women’s golf team placed sixth at the Great Lakes Valley Conference Tournament in Edinburgh, Ind., over the weekend.
The Cougars finished 63 strokes behind GLVC champion Drury.
“We didn’t play up to our capabilities,” said SIUE women’s golf coach Mark Marcuzzo. “The effort was great, but the kids just had a bad weekend. The off-season is going to be very important to us getting back in the race for the conference.”
Brittany Hood (Coulterville) came in 17th after shooting a 161.
“Brittany played well for having a bad knee,” said Marcuzzo. “When she gets healthy she will do better.”
Ashley Hemann (Highland) finished in 21st place, shooting a 165.
Casey Biddinger (Lafayette, Ind.) placed 23rd shooting a 167, and Danielle Kaufman (Nashville) was tied for 24th at 168.
This winter we are going to try and get back to where we need to be,” said Marcuzzo.
