Friday, April 18, 2008
YANKTON, S.D. - Bemidji State University junior Jenna Schurman (Sauk, Centre, Minn.) fired a 91 (+19) in the final round of the 72-hole Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Golf Championship at the par-72, 5,958-yard Fox Run Golf Course in Yankton, S.D. Friday. Her tournament total of 354 (+66) led the Beavers and was good for a share of 19th place individually. Schurman finished the event 59 strokes off the pace set by Upper Iowa University's Rachael Schmidt. Schmidt led the event from wire to wire carding a scorching four-round total of 295 (+7) to capture 2007-08 NSIC individual medallist honors by 19 shots over teammate and twin sister Rochelle Schmidt (314/+26). The sisters paved the way for Upper Iowa's second consecutive league championship. The Peacocks totaled 1,251 (+99) to edge second place Concordia University-St. Paul (1,320)/+168) and the rest of the field by 69 shots. Bemidji State 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. Because the first two rounds were missed, the Beavers were not be eligible for the team competition this week. Other individual participants for BSU included: Marissa Mackedanz (So., Paynesville, Minn.) who garnered 27th place with a 368 (+80), Courtney Edwards (Fr., Spicer, Minn.) who finished 30th with 375 (+87) and Breanna Pfremmer (Fr., Bemidji, Minn.) who did not compete in the first two rounds of the event but carded 261 in two rounds this spring. The unique 72-hole championship 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 completed at Fox Run Golf Course this week. BSU continues its spring season Saturday and Sunday when it heads to Waseca, Minn. and Lakeside Country Club for Minnesota State University's Maverick Invitational.
