Beavers take eighth at Upper Iowa Invite

WATERLOO, Iowa -- The Bemidji State University women's golf team returned to action April 1-2 with an eighth place finish at the Upper Iowa Invitational.

In its first competition in nearly a month, the Beavers carded a 389, led by an 87 (+15) from Katy Woelfel, to sit eighth after day one. Sunday, the Beavers lost ground, posting a 397, but held on to eighth place finishing the 36-hole, two-day event with 786. 

Woelfel finished as BSU's leader, recording a two-day total of 197 to finish 26 shots off the lead set by Concordia University-St. Paul's Savannah Stone (153 (+9)), who beat her teammate Sophia Hill (155 (+11)) by two strokes for medalist honors.

Central Missouri won the team competition placing three golfers among the tournament's top 10. The title-winning score was 645 (+69).

Bemidji State will now travel to Coon Rapids, Minn. and Bunker Hills Golf Course, April 14-15, to compete in the Minnesota State Invitational.
