Women’s golf places fifth in opening meet of spring season

FREMONT, Neb. – Freshman Amy Ahlers paced the Concordia University women’s golf team on Tuesday as it teed off for the first time this spring. As a team, the Bulldogs placed fifth out of 10 at the Midland University Spring Invite, held at Fremont Golf Club.

Concordia ended up with a team score of 390 on the par 73 course that totaled a distance of 5,847 yards.

“I am not disappointed with where we finished as a team,” head coach Brett Muller said. “I know in two weeks when we return for GPAC Qualifier No. 3 we will expect to shoot much better. Overall, I thought we hit the ball OK. Our short game needs to improve.”

Ahlers, a native of Albion, Neb., came in just under her fall average of 85.29 as she shot an 85. Her consistent 43 on the front nine and 42 on the back nine allowed her to place in a tie for fifth amongst the field over more than 70 golfers.

The rest of the Concordia lineup included sophomore Kristin Remm (97 – T-24th), freshman Kayla Krueger (100 – T-37th) and juniors Allison Schieffer (108 – T-51st) and Melissa McIntosh (109 – 54th).

The Midland Invite was made up entirely of GPAC teams. Dakota Wesleyan carded a 335 to win the tournament.

Concordia women’s golf will be in action again April 14-15 when the two-day Nebraska Wesleyan Spring Invite takes place in Lincoln, Neb. The first round will be held at Holmes Golf Course before shifting to Pioneers Golf Course for day two.
