Sunday, September 24, 2006

MARSHALL, Minn. -  Bemidji State University sophomore Jenna Schurman (Sauk Centre, Minn.) completed the 36-hole Mustang Invitational in a tie for 51st place firing a 36-hole total of 92-90=182 (+34) this weekend (Sept. 13-14) at the Marshall Golf Club in Marshall, Minn.

Competing as an individual Schurman dropped two spots during the final day of play despite shaving two strokes off of her first round score.

Rochelle Schmidt, of Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference foe Upper Iowa University, garnered top honors in the event carding a 76-75=151 (+7) defeating her nearest competition, her sister Rachael, by five strokes (78-78=156).

The University of North Dakota earned the team championship after recording a two-day total of 335-317=652 (+76). Propeled by a one-two finish of the Schmidt sisters, Upper Iowa was just three shots back in second place (326-329=655).

Bemidji State did not score in the team portion of the event due to lack of numbers. In order for an institution to compete as a team at least four scorecards must be turned in for each round.

The Beavers will be back in action Sept. 29 when they travel to Moorhead, Minn. for the MSUM Invitational. The team will wrap up the 2006 regular season by competing in the North Dakota Invitational the following two days (Sept. 30-Oct. 1) in Grand Forks, N.D.
