The Illinois State University women’s golf team tied for 10th place in a strong field at the Johnie Imes Invitational, hosted by the University of Missouri.
The Redbirds were led by senior Becca Black who used her experience to finish the three-round tournament with a nine-over par 225. Black’s best round came in the first of the tournament where she shot an even-par 72.
"I was really pleased with our opening round," ISU head coach Breanne Hall said. “The conditions were tough from the start, but we picked up smart targets and stayed committed to the shots.”
The opening round would prove to be the best round for the team, with the Redbirds slipping from a tie for fourth place as a team to 10th.
Senior Paige Seiser was the only Redbird to have her best round be the closing round of the tournament. Seiser closed her last hole of the tournament on a high note by carding an eagle on the par-five ninth hole. She finished the tournament in a tie for 41st place with a three-round total of 230.
