Women’s Golfers Complete Busy Tournament Week
With the summer tournament schedule in full swing, last week was action-packed for the Ball State women's golf program.
From Pennsylvania to Toronto to Franklin, Ind., current or former Ball State players were involved in tournament play.
A handful of them were in the field for the Indiana PGA Women's Open at Hillview Country Club in Franklin. Brittany Kelly, a 2011 graduate and a former champion at the event, finished tied for fifth at 1 over par through two days. Incoming freshman Kayla Adamson of Marion, Ind., tied for ninth at 4 over. Rising junior Karley Dobis tied for 29th, while incoming freshman Morgan Nadaline tied for 33rd.
Rising senior Jenna Hague played once again in the Women's Western Amateur Championship after finishing runner-up in the event last year. She missed out on the championship flight of match play after the stroke-play qualifying rounds, but she reached the quarterfinals of the first consolation flight. The Western Am was played at Lancaster Country Club, site of next year's U.S. Women's Open.
Up in Toronto, rising sophomore Kelsey Sear and rising junior Meghan McDougall played in the Toronto Star Women's Amateur. Sear carded rounds of 74 and 79 to tie for eighth place in the stroke-play portion of the event. She then advanced to the quarterfinals of the championship flight of match play. McDougall played in the first consolation flight, winning three matches to reach the finals.
