Lady Pirates Golf kicked off their spring season with a trip to the Pima Invitational in Arizona over spring break. While the team didn't have the need 4 players to compete as a team, Hannah Bracken, Julia Weydert, and Shayla Woodside each competed individually. Bracken led the way with a 15th place finish in the 33-woman field. Her two-day score for the event was +53. Weydert scored +94 and Woodside ended +165.
"The ladies learned quite a bit while playing a very quality course at The Views. It was a great experience getting to compete against the junior colleges in Arizona. It showed us where we stack up and what we need to work on the rest of the way. I was glad with how each of the ladies fought to improve on day two. Hannah had a solid two days and just missed out on a top 10 finish. I think each of the ladies would each agree that we could have shaved 5-10 shots per round off with better putting. I think the trip was a success for this year's ladies and helped excite future Lady Pirate golfers as well," remarked Coach Daniel Cordray of the event.
The next tournament for the team is the Graceland University Spring Invite which begins today.
