The Valparaiso University women’s golf team received quality rounds from Anna Fay (Ada, Mich. / Forest Hills) and Madison Keil (LaGrange, Ind. / Lakeland) to start out the two-day, 36-hole Indiana State Invitational on Sunday at the par-72, 6041-yard Country Club of Terre Haute. Both are in the mix for top-10 finishes with 18 holes to play.
How It Happened
- Fay carded a 78 to lead the Beacons. She finished the first day of the event tied for 10th in a 41-player field.
- Keil was just one stroke behind her teammate in Sunday’s opening round, finishing the day with a 79. She is part of a tie for 14th.
- The next best score by a Beacon came from Roslyn Leitner (Dundee, Ill. / Harry Jacobs), who was golfing as an individual and turned in an 81. She enters Monday in 19th place. That marked Leitner’s best 18-hole score of the season.
- Valpo’s team score of 330 (+42) helped the Beacons finish the day four strokes ahead of Eastern Illinois for fifth in a six-team field. Green Bay leads the way at 304, while Evansville’s Kate Petrova owns the top spot on the player leaderboard with a 71.
