The women’s golf season comes to an end on a rainy day at the Evansville Fall Intercollegiate, and the weather was not the only thing gloomy about this season.

On Monday, the team finished 10th out of 11 teams as it put up a team score of 345 and had no women place in the top 20. This was the team’s second worst round they have played this year.

In the six golf tournaments the women’s golf team participated in this year, the team failed to place better than 10th in any of them. The Panthers began the season in September at the Murray State Fall Invitational where they placed 10th out of 12 teams.

Then in back to back tournaments they came in last of 10 teams at the Loyola-Chicago Fall Invitational and the Butler Fall Invitational. At the Dayton Fall Invitational, the Panthers came in 15th out of 15.

The team’s lowest rounds came at the Loyola-Chicago and the Butler tournaments where the team shot a 331. The next best team low was at the Murray State Invitational when the Panthers shot a 333 in the 1st round.

The lowest round shot by an Eastern player this year was by junior Alexandra Pickens who shot a 78 in the 2nd round of the Dayton Invitational. Sophomore Anne Bahr who scored an 80 in the 2nd round of the Murray State Invitational shot the second-best round on the team this season.

The third lowest round score was an 81 and Pickens shot that twice while Bahr shot it once. Junior Chloe Wong also shot her best round of the season at 81. No individuals placed in the top 20 at any of these tournaments.

The team will now have a long offseason to work on improving its results for next season.
