Women's Golf Completes Two Rounds of Play in Hawaii
March 13, 2013
KAMEOHE BAY, Oahu - Katie Jean led the Illinois State women's golf team to a two-round team score of 631 (320-311) at the Dr. Donnis Thompson Invitational Tuesday at Kameohe Bay, Oahu. Jean finished the first day of competition with a score of 155 (83-72), shooting par in the second round, and sits in a tie for 33rd place, while ISU is currently in 12th place.
"We have so many positive things going on that our team and individual scores aren't capturing," head women's golf coach Darby Sligh said. "I am proud of the way Jordyn (Wyzgowski) played in the first round, and how we had some solid comebacks in the second round. Our biggest issue at this point is consistency and finishing, as we get towards the end of the two rounds. We lose focus and hit errant shots that cause big numbers. This is not a new issue, but one we need to handle soon."
Rachel Powers ended the first day of play, carding a 157 (81-76), while Jordyn Wyzgowski was one-stroke behind with a two-round score total of 158 (74-84). Powers and Wyzgowski finished the first day of play in ties for 44th and 49th place, respectively. Hayley Guyton shot a two-round score of 162 (83-79), while Carlee Cossell carded a total of 166 (82-84).
Courtnee Cossell, who is competing as an individual, finished day one with a mark of 177 (88-89).
Arizona is leading the field with a team total of 582 (289-293), while Ohio State is in second place after the first day of play with a team total of 596 (296-300), while Louisville rounds out the top-three with a 598 (296-302).
The Redbirds will play their final round Wednesday, with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. (CST).
