Women's golf team shows well in Horizon League tournament

By Matt Poshedley

The Cleveland State University women’s golf team took 3rd place in the Horizon League Tournament, which was held April 22 through April 24 at the Mission Inn Resort in Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla.

When the tournament began on Sunday, the Vikings struggled to find their stroke, but after the first day, they found themselves in 6th place while shooting 334 as a team.

The second day the Vikings started to come into their own, as they shot 315 as a team. This is 19 shots better than the previous day, and it moved them into 4th place.

On the third and final day, the Vikings continued to play well and shot 316 as a team to move them into 3rd place overall.

“It was really great to be able to bounce back from Sundays round on Monday and Tuesday,” freshman Madison Butler said. “It just showed us that we can compete with those teams on any given day.”

Butler led the Vikings as she finished tied for 6th place with a 232 after the three rounds.

Butler was named to the All-Horizon League second team this year.

“It felt really great to be able to play so well at the end of the season, especially at conference,” Butler said. “I will be playing that course for the next three years, so I think it was important to be able to play well there this year and hopefully, improve on that in the coming years.”

Other notable finishes are sophomore Kaylee Neumeister who tied for 11th place, senior Sophie Kelner who tied for 20th place, freshman Ashley Knight who tied for 22nd and senior Emily Turski who tied for 28th place.

The team also set a new school scoring record, with a 316-scoring average, which is more than a stroke better than last year.

“Setting the school record for scoring average was a pretty cool thing to do as a team,” Butler said. “I think that this year we all pushed each other to be the best and play the best that we could possibly play, and I think that shows with our scoring average for this year.” 

“Hopefully, for the next coming seasons we can continue to improve on that as well.”
