MARSHALL, Minn. (Marshall Golf Club) - Bemidji State University freshman Jenna Schurman (Sauk Centre, Minn.) opened the first weekend of women's golf play with a 54th-place finished at the SMSU Invitational at the Marshall Golf Course in Marshall, Minn.

Schurman finished day one of the 36-hole tournament tied for 52nd place after firing a 91. She followed that up with a matching 91 on the second day of competition to finish in 54th with a total of 182.

North Dakota's Liz Kaler took home medallist honors leading UND to the team title carding a 74-76=150 to finish six-over-par for the event. The Fighting Sioux (318-316=634) grabbed first place by five strokes edging out Minnesota State (315-324=639) for the top spot.

BSU did not compete as a team due to lack of participants.
