For Immediate Release
Comstock Park, Mich. – The Indiana Tech women’s golf team wrapped up their season on Tuesday with a fourth place finish at the WHAC Championship hosted by the conference regular season champions Aquinas College at Scott Lake Country Club.
The Warriors ended the first round in fifth place with a 360, but climbed one spot over the final day of competition turning in a 336 to finish with a 36-hole total of 696.
Madonna University won the event with a 651 followed by Aquinas and Davenport University with a 677 and 686, respectively.
While the team’s season may be over, senior Megan Garrison will play on after earning a trip to the 2013 NAIA National Championship by capturing WHAC Individual Medalist honors for the 2012-13 season. The honor goes to the individual with the lowest average round score with a minimum of seven conference rounds played. Garrison averaged an 80.57 this season to edge MU’s Michelle Hall and AQ’s Abby Hagan by less than one stroke.
Garrison finished second overall to lead the Warriors at the WHAC Championship, her 10th top-5 finish of the season. She bounced back from an opening round 84 with a 76 over the final 18-holes to end with a 160, just six shots back of tournament champion Michelle Hall.
Julia Browning landed in 15th place with a 36-hole total score of 177 (92/85) while the rest of the Warrior team finished between 22nd and 26th. Katie Clouse carded a 181 (93/88), Rachel George finished with a 182 (95/87), Haley Larson a 184 (91/93), and Tina Mettert a 184 (94/90).
