SIUE Finishes Strong at IWU
The Southern Illinois University Edwardsville women's golf team finished third at the Illinois Wesleyan Fall Classic on Sunday behind the performance of freshman Olivia Fox (Smithton).
"I am very pleased with the girls' performance this weekend," said SIUE women's golf coach Jennifer Jakel.
Fox's 36-hole total of 155 tied for third place.
"As a freshman she (Fox) has made the transition from high school golf to collegiate golf without much of a struggle. She has performed well for the team in the first three tournaments of this year and will continue to improve as the year goes on," said Jakel.
Finishing four shots behind Fox was Ashley Hemann (Highland) with a 159 total placing her in a tie for 14th.
The Cougars next tournament will be the USI Fall Classic this Sunday and Monday at Helfrich Hills Golf Club.
"I believe the team will fare pretty good at the USI tournament this coming weekend," said Jakel.
"There will be several teams from our region participating in this tournament, and that will provide us another opportunity to improve our region standings as we end our fall season," added Jakel.
