LINCOLN, Neb. – The two-day Nebraska Wesleyan Invite came to a conclusion on Monday in Lincoln, Neb., where senior Chelsea Peck’s 100-98–198 topped an overall rough outing for the Bulldog women’s golfers. Head coach Brett Muller’s team did however knock 23 strokes off its frustrating Sunday effort. Concordia finished with a two-round 422-399–821 to place eighth at the event.
Peck came up short of her solid spring-opening 89 that she turned in at the Midland Invite on April 3. That effort had tied the Lincoln native for third place. Peck finished in a tie for 35th place at the Nebraska Wesleyan Invite.
Senior Madison Phillips (109-102–211) and sophomores Melissa McIntosh (105-100–205), Jenelle Hallaert (110-99–209) and Allison Schieffer (104) and freshman Gretyl Bremer (117) also took part in the two-day event in Lincoln. All four Bulldogs who golfed both rounds improved their scores from the first day of the Nebraska Wesleyan Invite, providing something positive to build upon heading into the most important golf of the season.
Behind individual champion Joana Yanez (79-82–161), Iowa Western Community College (341-340–681) took the team title. Conference schools Nebraska Wesleyan, Morningside, Doane, Midland, Briar Cliff and Hastings also competed on at least one of the two days in Lincoln.
The Bulldogs have just one event left on the spring schedule as both GPAC Qualifiers Nos. 3 and 4 will be played April 26 at Two Rivers in Dakota Dunes S.D. The first women’s GPAC qualifier of the spring was originally set to take place on April 9, but inclement weather postponed the event, meaning 36 holes will be played on April 26.
