The MSU women’s golf team competed in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) Championship on April 23 and 24. The team ended the weekend with a third place finish to finish out the season.
“We didn’t play as well as I thought we would over all. Our team seems to struggle under adverse weather conditions and Saturday was very windy so we posted big numbers,” head coach Nick Campa said.
The Mavs recovered a bit on Sunday but it wasn’t quite enough to pull them any higher than their third place finish. As a team they shot for a total score of 320 on Sunday and finished the 72 hole event with a grand total of 1327.
“Kanyapak Sethasompobe continues to be our steadiest golfer and led the team again,” said Campa.
Sethasompobe finished out the weekend with a +32 total of 320 which was enough to give her an eighth place finish individually, the best placement for the Mav women. The other Mav women that placed were Madison Jewel finished in a tie for 13th place with her +48 total of 336, Abbe Partington ended the weekend in 17th place wither her +53 total of 341, Haley Tollette took a tie in 24th place with her +57 total of 345, and lastly Oliva Robinson played the final two rounds with her +90 total of 88.
Coming in second place for the weekend was Concordia-St. Paul who shot 1308 while first place went to Augustana with their total of 1245. The win marks Augstana’s seventh straight championship win.
“We have a very young team with three freshmen and a sophomore so we have a tendency to get high numbers at times but I believe if we get selected for the Central regional qualifying that we can make a good showing,” Campa said.
