Perry, Dobis Claim City Tournament Crowns
MUNCIE, Ind. -- A pair of Ball State women’s golfers posted summer victories in their hometowns in the past few days.
Rising senior Meghan Perry won the Evansville Courier & Press Women’s City Golf Championship over the weekend for the second straight year. Rising sophomore Karley Dobis then claimed her first Fort Wayne Women’s Golf Association City Tournament title on Monday.
Perry carded a two-day total of 149 over her rounds at the Helfrich Hills and Cambridge courses in Evansville. She pulled away for a seven-stroke victory to defend her title at the event.
Dobis fired an opening-round 71 and led wire-to-wire on her way to victory at Coyote Creek in Fort Wayne. She finished the 54-hole event with a total of 224 to win by three strokes.
Yet another Cardinal, Mary Welch, is tied atop the leaderboard at the Madison (Wisc.) City Tournament after an opening-round 73 on Monday.
Busy Week Ahead
Dobis will be back in action this week, along with Ball State teammate Brenna Obergfell, at the Indiana Women’s Golf Association State Amateur Championship at Harbour Trees Golf Club in Noblesville.
It is a busy week for Ball State women’s golfers. Jenna Hague will compete in the North & South Women’s Amateur Championship at Pinehurst Resort. This is the 111th year of the championship, which is one of the most sought after women's amateur titles.
Additionally, Sarah Westaway and incoming Cardinals Meghan McDougall and Kelsey Sear are playing this week’s Investors Group Ontario Women’s Amateur Championship.
