Women's Golfer Jenna Hague Receives Postseason Honors
Ball State freshman women's golfer Jenna Hague, who won the Mid-American Conference Championships, was honored by the league in its postseason awards.
Hague was named to the 2012 MAC All-Tournament Team and the All-MAC Second Team.
The Cardinals finished second at the MAC Championships behind only 14-time champion Kent State, and Hague won medalist honors in a one hole playoff. She became only the third non-Kent State golfer to ever earn medalist honors in the history of the conference championships and the second Ball State player to ever accomplish the feat. Ball State's Katie Sundberg earned medalist honors for the Cardinals at the 2005 MAC Championships.
Hague managed a 77.97 average in her initial season and tallied three first-place finishes. In addition to earning medalist honors at the MAC, she won the Eastern Kentucky Colonel Classic and followed that victory with a tie for first at the Indiana Invitational. Hague lost medalist honors on the fourth playoff hole at the Indiana event.
Hague, who carded a hole-in-one on the 15th hole in the final round of the MAC Championships, tallied a career low 69 in the final round. Her birdie on the 72nd hole forced a playoff and a birdie on the first playoff hole won her medalist honors.
Hague posted eight top-20 finishes, including six top-10 showings as a freshman. She tied her 54-hole total career low with a 223 at the MAC Championships, a mark she also posted at the Redbird Invitational Sept. 10-11.
This marked Ball State's third top-three finish at the MAC in the last three seasons. Under the guidance of head coach Katherine Mowat, the Cardinals were second in 2010 and third in 2011 at the league championships.
