The Eastern women’s golf team played the final 18 holes today of the Northern Kentucky University Fall Classic, and it finished with them in 13th out of 14 teams.

The Panthers started the day in 12th place.

The schools in the Classic played the first 36 holes Monday.

The Panthers put together a team score of +154 par. Eastern finished in front of Chicago State which finished +216 par.

UNC Asheville finished +62 par to win the NKU Fall Classic.

Eastern finished day on with shooting +97 par through the first 36 holes.

Junior transfer Daphne Chang was the top finisher for the Panthers finishing tied for 37th shooting +28 par. The top golfer of the day was unable to shoot under par as Ellie Cronin of Dayton took home first place honors as the individual medalist shooting +9 par.

Chang was the top golfer for the Panthers following the first day as well.

Senior Anne Bahr finished tied for 53rd shooting +36 par. Eastern brought six golfers to the NKU Classic.

The teams had to deal with a 45-minute delay as the remains of Hurricane Irma slowed down play. There was heavy rain later in the afternoon contributing to the delayed play.

Eastern has to wait until Oct. 2 to hit the course again for competition play. Ohio Valley Conference foe Austin Peay hosts the F&M Bank APSU Intercollegiate Oct. 2 and Oct. 3.
