The University of Indianapolis womens golf team placed second out of 16 at the Dolores Black Invitational in Bowling Green, Ohio, April 13-14.
The team carded a second-round score of 310, with sophomores Chanice Young and Jaclyn Schindler finishing in the top five, 79-75 and 82-74, respectively. Junior Amy Thompson tied for 13th place, 79-80, while sophomore Regan Pittard tied for 38th, 83-82, and junior Jenny Konop tied for 56th, 88-81.
The next stop for the womens team is the Great Lakes Valley Conference Championships, which Konop said many teams would consider a great accomplishment. However, the Greyhounds still feel the best is yet to come.
We have pretty high expectations of ourselves, Konop said. Its not just about winning tournaments, its about improving with every round. Its about all seven of us playing great every day. We dont only want to push ourselves in tournaments, we want to push ourselves individually and as a team to break school records.
The mens golf team played April 14-15 at the Midwest Regional #4, placing 12th among 31 teams with a 297-300 score, in a tie with the University of Findlay and behind Missouri-St. Louis. Junior Seve Duncan carded a 71 score, which was good enough for a career best and a three-way tie with two other Greyhounds for 56th place at +6.
Senior Tobin Dunigan said he has high expectations for the mens team headed into the postseason.
It [the ranking] is okay right now, but obviously wed like it to be better, Dunigan said. The top eight are invited to the Super Regional, so we want to be firmly inside the top three, so we can take off some pressure.
Head Mens and Womens Golf Coach Brent Nicoson shared his expectation for the next step to regionals and said the teams have one goal in mind.
Every time we go, we compete for a win, Nicoson said. We [the mens team] probably know it [Otter Creek Golf Course] better than anybody, being around Indianapolis. Were ranked No. 2 in the region, and so well be in the lead groups that are playing.
The men will compete in the GLVC Championships April 21-23 at the Otter Creek Golf Course in Columbus, Ind. The women will travel to the Annbriar Golf Course in Waterloo, Ill., for the GLVC Championships April 27-28.
