DAKOTA DUNES, S.D. – The Concordia University women’s golf team competed in the GPAC Qualifier No. 1 on Wednesday, Sept. 30. The squad carded a 354, a tying score for fourth place, just 12 strokes away from tying first place.
Said head coach Brett Muller, “If we just look at the fact that we’re only 12 shots out of first, it’s a good day, but at 354 we obviously could have done a lot better. We just need to put four scores together Monday and we’ll be right there.”
The team tied Dakota Wesleyan for fourth place while Morningside, having four of their five golfers place in the top 20, take first place with a team score of 342. Mount Marty College and Nebraska Wesleyan University tied for second carding a 346.
Individually, Kayla Krueger was the top finisher for the Bulldogs, tying for third with a score of 83. The score was good to tie her career low set at last year’s GPAC Qualifier No. 1 and tied again at the Nebraska Wesleyan Invite last spring. One other Bulldog, Amy Ahlers finished in the 80’s with a mark of 84 for eighth place. Emma Jacoby finished with a score of 93. Mallarie Fila (94) and Ashlen Pospisil (97) rounded out the individual scores.
“Kayla Krueger had a very solid day for us,” Muller noted. “She shot a 39 on the back and was able to post a good score.”
The ‘Dogs will be back on the course on Monday, Oct. 5 for the second GPAC Qualifier at Southern Hills GC in Hastings, Neb.
