NEW BRAUNFELS, TX – The Missouri State women’s golf team recorded a final round 323 (+39) on Tuesday morning, placing the Bears in 12th overall of the 15 competing schools.

“It was a good tournament on a good golf course,” said head coach Kevin Kane. “We were rusty, as you might expect considering the weather and lack of outdoor practice we've had.”

Gonzaga won the tournament, posting rounds of 285-306-287—878, followed by host Texas State University (300-300-286—886).

Brigham Young (314-302-300—916) jumped into a third-place finish, with Arkansas Little-Rock (300-314-303—917) and Cal State Fullerton (303-312-304—919) rounding out the top five.
Individually, the Bears were led by junior Estefania Acosta’s 79-79-81—239, good for a tie for 41st in the competitive 79 golfer field.

Freshman Caroline Boone’s 73-87-79—242, placed her in a tie for 55th. Boone’s first-round 73 was the best round of the tournament by any Missouri State golfer.

Chiara Citterio and Lindsey Eisenreich tied for 61st after shooting 245, with Megan Furnish rounding out the MSU competitors with her 246.


 

 

Raychelle Santos (68-77-67—212) led the way for Gonzaga, and finished the tournament as the only player under par at -1.

Gonzaga’s Ciera Min, Ball State’s Jenna Hague, and Texas State’s Iman Nordan finished in a three-way tie for second after each shooting 214, +1.

After the tournament, Kane added, “It's a starting point and we have to work on getting a little better every day. We'll be spending time on short game and the mental part for sure.”

The Bears will next compete at the Rio Verde Invitation in Arizona on March 7-9.
