Sept. 15, 2013
EAST LANSING, Mich. - The Indiana women's golf team wrapped up its first road trip of the season with an 11th-place finish at the Mary Fossum Invitational at Forest Akers West Golf Club in East Lansing, Mich.
Indiana posted a final round 312 with finish with 54-hole score of 939 (318-309-312). Michigan State won on its home course with a tally of 892, followed by Ohio State (896), Notre Dame (906), Northwestern (907) and Oregon (908) in the top five of the 15-team tournament.
"It was kind of a tough day," said head coach Clint Wallman. "I saw some good stuff and some things that we need to work on. Ana continues to impress and this was a breakout tournament for Kamryn Klawitter. We are looking forward to getting home and working on things."
Freshman Ana Sanjuan was the top IU finisher for the second-straight weekend, tallying a 4-over 76 on Sunday to finish tied for 21st (77-76-76/229). Sanjuan has 12 holes of par or better, including a birdie on the par-4 fifth hole.
Junior Elizabeth Tong was one stroke back of Sanjuan and finished tied for 24th with a tally of 230 (78-74-78). It was just two holes that kept Tong from a really solid outing with double bogeys on the par-4 third hole and the par-3 ninth hole. Tong was +2 on the remaining 16 holes, with a birdie on the par-4 15th hole.
Sophomore Marissa DeCola had her best round of the weekend with a 5-over 77 to place tied for 58th (85-78-77). After a rough start with bogeys on five of the first seven holes, DeCola bounced back to shoot even par on the final 11 holes of the day.
Senior Sophie Hayashi tallied an 81 on Sunday and finished third for 63rd (80-81-81). Hayashi birdied the par-5 13th hole, a hole she played a par or better for the entire tournament. Rounding out the Hoosier five was sophomore Maria Mancini who placed 83rd (83-81-85).
Competing as an individual, junior Kamryn Klawitter placed third for 30th in the field, posting a 77 on Sunday to finish at 231 (79-75-77). Klawitter had three birdies on Sunday, going under par on holes two, eight and 14.
The Hoosiers are next on the course Sept. 23-25 at the Golfweek Conference Challenge in Vail, Colo.
