BSU women wrap 2010 with eighth-place finish at NSIC Championships
BRANDON, S.D.  (Brandon Golf Course) -- The Bemidji State University women’s golf team put the wraps on the 2010 spring season Sunday, carding a 355 to finish the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) Championship in eight place with 54-hole, team total of 365-343-355--1,063 (+211).  The event was played at the par-71, 5,904-yard Brandon Golf Course in Brandon, S.D.  

BSU junior Marissa Mackedanz (Paynesville, Minn.) paved the way for the Beavers, firing a 89-86-86--261 (+48) to place 30th individually.  She held a one-shot lead over teammate Gretchen Trosen (Jr., Larimore, N.D.), who tied for 31st overall after 87-83-92--262 (+49).  Kathryn Stoffels (Fr., Maple Grove, Minn.) recorded a 91-87-85--263 (+50) to complete the three-day event locked in a tie for 33rd.

Led by individual medallist and 2010 conference champion Emily Kvidera, Augustana College claimed the NSIC team title posting a 319-313-319--950 (+98).  The Vikings’ 319 (+35) on day three was good enough to hold off a late charge by Concordia University-St. Paul, which fired a round-three low 312 (+28), and down the Golden Beavers and the rest of the field by seven shots (325-320-312--957; +105).

Kvidera cruised to the individual title carding an event-low 73 (+2) on the final day of competition to finish with a 77-76-73--226 (+13) and a seven stroke cushion over her nearest competitor, Upper Iowa University’s Jill Preeshl (80-74-80--234; +21).

The NSIC Championships drops the curtain on the Beavers’ 2009-10 golf season.  Head coach Krissi Super returns all six roster players for the 2010-11 campaign.
