The Bowling Green women’s golf team placed fourth at the Nevel Meade Intercollegiate in Prospect, Kentucky.

They finished at +42.

On Monday, the 54-hole competition was cut down to 36 holes due to frost in the area found after the first 18 holes.

Central Michigan won the tournament with a team score of 26 over par.

Evansville trailed them by seven strokes, ending their tournament at +33.

Dayton finished at +41 in third place, one stroke better than BGSU.

The Falcons’ best golfer in the 36 holes was sophomore Mackenzie Moore, who tied for fifth in the tournament with a five-over par performance.

She was also the best on par 3s in the whole tournament, shooting even par.

The only other BG golfer in the top ten was freshman Olivia Steen, finishing in 10th place.

Steen also finished tied for third on par-five holes with Moore, both shooting three under.

Senior Savannah Wyrick ended her two days in 19th place, shooting +13 over par.

Fellow senior Kayla Davis only finished a stroke behind Wyrick, finishing 22nd and going 14 over par.

Rounding out the top five for the Falcons was junior Emily Pantig Nystrom, who finished her tournament in 43rd place and 19 over par.

Head Coach Erin Fahey talked about the brutal conditions the team had to endure on the course.

“The team battled some tough cold and windy conditions today,” she said. “They fought hard and never gave up throughout the round. We fell a little bit short of our goal but separated ourselves from the rest of the field.”

BG Women’s Golf will return on the links on March 27 for the Babs Steffens Invitational.
