Woelfel leads Bemidji State to seventh at MSU Invitational

COON RAPIDS, Minn. (Bunker Hills) -- Led By Katy Woelfel, the Bemidji State University women's golf team finished seventh in the Minnesota State University Invitational Sunday at the 5,883-yard, par-72 Bunker Hills Golf Course in Coon Rapids, Minn.

After posting a 362 (+74) to sit seventh after the first day of competition, the Beavers bounced back to log its second-best team score of the 2016-17 season Sunday, carding a 360 (+72) fifth on day two and finished the 36-hole, two day event seventh overall with 722 (+146).

Bemidji State’s +146 left its 94 strokes off the pace in seventh place.

The host, Minnesota State University, Mankato, won the team event carding rounds of 318 and 310 to finish with a 628 (+52). With all five of its golfers scoring among the top eight in the tournament, Mavericks completed the event with a 15 shot lead over Concordia University-St. Paul (+67) and the rest of the eight-team field.

Minnesota State's Haley Tollette won individual medalist honors firing a one-over-par 73 Sunday to finish with 153 (+9) and earn a one-stroke victory over CU’s Savannah Stone (79-75—154/+10).

BSU's Woelfel led the Beavers finishing 14th, individually, after carding rounds of 85 and 80 to finish 21 over par. Her eight-over-par 80 on day two stood just one stroke off her season-best 79 recorded Sept. 11.

The Beavers will be back in action April 21-23 when they travel to Morton, Minn. and Dacotah Ridge Golf Course to compete in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Championship. Tee times for the 54-hole, three-day event will begin at 9 a.m. Friday.
