MUNCIE, Ind. -- The Ball State women’s golf team will compete in its second event of the fall season when the Cardinals tee it up this week at Louisville’s Cardinal Cup.

The 54-hole tournament at The Cardinal Club in Simpsonville, Ky., begins with 36 holes Monday. The final round will be contested Tuesday. The action both days is scheduled for an 8:40 a.m. shotgun start, and live scoring is available at

Ball State started its season on a good note last weekend with a second-place finish at Illinois State’s Redbird Invitational. Jenna Hague won the fifth tournament of her career (a Ball State record), set the Cardinals’ 54-hole scoring record at 1-under par 215 and was named the Mid-American Conference Golfer of the Week.

Teammate Meghan Perry was not far behind Hague in the opener, finishing in a tie for seventh place, and will again occupy the No. 2 spot in the Ball State lineup.

Mary Welch, coming off a strong finish at the Redbird Invitational, jumps up to the No. 3 spot this week. Welch, a senior and a former transfer, closed the season-opening tournament with a 75 for the best round of her Ball State career.

Sarah Westaway and Karley Dobis round out the lineup, as the Cardinals will use the same five golfers as they did in the opener. Additionally, Brenna Obergfell will compete as an individual.

Ball State and tournament host Louisville are joined in this week’s 13-team field by Chattanooga, Cincinnati, Houston, Illinois State, Kansas, Marshall, Memphis, Middle Tennessee, Murray State, Northern Kentucky and South Florida. Seven of those teams finished last season among the top 115 in the country.

The Cardinal Cup will be a homecoming of sorts for Ball State coach Katherine Mowat. Now in her 10th season in Muncie, Mowat was an individual conference champion and an Academic All-American as a Louisville golfer before graduating from the school in 2001.
