NSIC Championship pushed back due to weather
Thursday, April 10, 2008
ST. PAUL, Minn. - Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Commissioner Butch Raymond announced today that the spring portion of the 2007-08 NSIC Women's Golf Championship, originally slated for April 12-13 at Fox Run Golf Course in Yankton, S.D., has been postponed until April 17-18. The final 36 holes of the event has been moved due to predicted poor weather and already soggy course conditions.

The unique 72-hole tournament is played as a combination of two 36-hole events. The first half of the championship was played Oct. 5-6 at Pebble Creek Golf Course in Becker, Minn. with the final two rounds pushed back to next week.

Upper Iowa University holds a 36-stroke lead over the rest of the field heading into the final two rounds of play. The Peacocks are led by Rachael Schmidt who fired scores of 77 and 71 (148) to own a six-stroke lead over Winona State University’s Megan Placko (76-78--154) to hold the individual lead.

Bemidji State University did not register a team score during the fall portion of the event due to lack of participation. In order to submit a team score, at least four individual scores are needed. Jenna Schurman (Jr., Sauk Centre) paced the Beavers in the tournament carding a two-round total of 87-84--171 to enter the back half of the championship in 14th place.
