Arkansas State women's golf team sinks third place in two-day tourney
|The Arkansas State University Lady Indian golf team finished third
in a 15-team-field behind Campbell University and Georgia State University
in the Jacksonville State Lady Gamecock Classic on March 23 and 24.
Campbell University shot a total of 595, Georgia State 644 and ASU 655. Sophomore Rebecca Sarjeant lead the team shooting a total of 154, 10 over par. She finished 6 in a field of 86 competitors. Freshman Krissy Worden was next in scoring for the Lady Indians shooting 167, 23 over par. Freshmen Jennifer Simmons, Amanda Beeler and Jennifer Glynn shot 168, 169 and 180 respectfully. Coach Jan Ham said the third place finish was very good considering the youth of the Lady Indians Golf team.
"We always want to win each tournament, but the finish was good considering the fact that our team has four freshman," Ham said.
Campbell University made a strong showing placing four people in the top five. All of Campbell's players finished in the top 25.
Maria Sol Arenas of Campbell led the pack shooting 146 to finish 2 over par.
Mara Larrauri also of Campbell University tied for second with Suzanne Westling of Troy State. Patricia Monchietti and Kylie Pratt both of Campbell University tied for fourth place.
Although rain and cold weather cut into practice time for the Lady Indians, it did not make much difference because other schools in the tournament experienced similar difficulties, Ham said. The Lady Indian golf team will be in action April 6 and 7 at the SMS Spring Invitational in Springfield, Mo.
The ASU men's golf team will compete March 30 and 31 in the SMSU Invitational in Springfield and April 6 and 7 at the ASU/Indian Classic in Jonesboro.
