Cougars Place Second at Illinois Wesleyan
BLOOMINGTON, ILL. - Junior Megan Hood (Coulterville) shot a final round 75 Sunday to help Southern Illinois University Edwardsville to a second-place team finish at the Illinois Wesleyan Invitational.
Hood's two-round total of 154 was good enough for fifth place as an individual at Ironwood Golf Club.
SIUE improved its 322 score from Saturday to 316 on Sunday. The Cougars were second to fellow Great Lakes Valley Conference member Southern Indiana, which won the tournament by 19 strokes in a field of 21 teams.
Julie Cline and Natalie Connaway also finished in the top 20 for the Cougars. Cline scored matching scores of 80 each day for 15th place. Connaway scored 78-83 for 161 and placed 16th.
SIUE now heads to the Kaskaskia Fall Invitational Thursday at Governor's Run.
