Crusader Women Continue Spring Campaign
Angie Kim led the Crusaders on Sunday.

The fickle spring weather forced the Valparaiso University women’s golf team to hit the road again this weekend, as the Crusaders competed Sunday at the Crusader/Jaguar Challenge. The tournament was originally slated to be contested at The Course at Aberdeen, but was moved to the Trophy Club in Lebanon, Ind. and shortened to an 18-hole event.

Valpo posted a team score of 340 on Sunday, as teams were allowed to play six golfers, counting their best four scores. Youngstown State took top team honors with a score of 322, while IUPUI posted a team score of 331 and Marian 382.

Junior Angie Kim (Schaumburg, Ill./Fremd) was the Crusaders’ top individual finisher Sunday, shooting a round of 81 to  finish in sixth place. Sophomore Kiana Jongsma (Dyer, Ind./Lake Central) earned a ninth-place finish with a round of 84 – her first top-10 finish of the season.

Sophomore Katie Willenbrink (Mishawaka, Ind./Penn) and freshman Madison McCreary (Batesville, Ind./Batesville) shot matching scores of 85 on Sunday to finish tied for 10th place – McCreary doing so while playing as an individual. Freshman Kylie Shoemake (Schererville, Ind./Lake Central) posted a round of 90 for the Crusaders, while senior Sibil Gill (Kokomo, Ind./Western) and junior Sydney Shrum (Cloverdale, Ind./Cloverdale) rounded out Valpo’s golfers with respective rounds of 91 and 94.

Valparaiso’s final tune-up for the Horizon League Championship comes in the form of a dual competition next weekend, as the Crusaders will host league foe Green Bay at The Course at Aberdeen. The two-day tournament begins Friday, Apr. 15.
