Seymour, Ind. – Senior Megan Garrison’s (Cutler, IN/Carroll) historic rounds over the weekend powered the Indiana Tech women’s golf team to a team score of 655 as the Warriors ran away with the Hanover College Invitational.
Indiana Tech’s 655 tied the school record for 36-holes, and was good enough to win the event by 13 shots over Hanover and Marian University, who tied for second with a 668.
The win was the third straight for Tech, which was the first time in school history the team has won three consecutive tournaments.

On Sunday, she followed it up with a three-over 76 to shoot a two-day total of 148 – which shattered her own school record of 153 set last year. Garrison won her second tournament of the season, this time by seven strokes.
