PEKIN, Ill. – Senior McCall Christopher captured second place as the Indiana State women’s golf team finished fourth at the Bradley Spring Invitational which concluded today after an hour and a half delay due to frost on the course.
Christopher had a share of the first round lead as she tied her career low 18 hole round with a 73 and came back with a 75 in Sunday’s final round to finish at 148 which is a career low 36-hole score for the Sycamore senior.
She finished two shots back of Evansville’s Kayla Katterhenry who captured her second straight tournament by two rounds of 73 to finish at 146. Butler’s Isabella Lambert and Northern Iowa’s Sarah Boss tied for third with 150s.
“The back pins caught us not playing aggressive enough,” Greg Towne, Indiana State women’s golf coach, said. “Then we putted poorly uphill. The girls will figure it out but we will probably see those long type of putts at conference and we need to get better.”
Towne was not totally pleased with the results but was still happy.
“This has been a good week considering we were short-handed without Marissa (Uradomo),” Towne said. “We are looking forward to hosting at the country club this weekend.”
Amanda Smith finished tied for 20th with rounds of 77 and 81 for a 158 total while Erinn Sutton finished 25th after carding a 79 and 80 in the two rounds for a 159 total. Gina Della Camera opened with a 79 and carded an 83 in the second round as she tied for 31st with a 162 total while Andrea Frankiewicz shot 80 and 85 in the two tournament rounds for a 165 total and tied for 42nd.
Southern Illinois took the team title with a 617 with Butler second at 619, Northern Illinois third at 622 and Indiana State fourth with a 627 total. The Sycamores were followed by Northern Iowa (631), Bradley (634), Loyola (635), Evansville (635), Western Illinois 645), and Illinois-Chicago (676).
The Indiana State Spring Invitational will be played Sunday and Monday at the Terre Haute Country Club and is the final regular season tournament before the Missouri Valley Conference Women’s Golf Championship.
