Women’s Golf Opens MVC Championship
Katie Schreiner led the team on the first day of the MVC Championship.

The Valparaiso University women’s golf team competed in the first two rounds of the Missouri Valley Conference Championship on Sunday, hosted by UNI at the par-72, 6188-yard Annbriar GC in Waterloo, Ill. The Beacons were led by Katie Schreiner (Fenton, Mo. / Summit) on the first day of action. The teams were originally scheduled to play 18 holes each day through Tuesday, but due to the weather forecast that plan was tweaked to create a 36-hole day on Sunday.

How It Happened

  • Schreiner had a strong opening round with a 77, the best score of the day by a Beacon. She finished the day at 159 (+15), tied for 40th in a 60-player field.
  • Valpo’s second and third best scores came from juniors Madison Keil (LaGrange, Ind. / Lakeland) and Anna Fay (Ada, Mich. / Forest Hills), who finished with 36-hole scores of 164 and 165, respectively. Keil had a team-high four birdies.
  • Valpo completed Day 1 with a team score of 660 (+84), ranking 12th on the team leaderboard. The Beacons golfed a 323 in Round 1 before a 337 in Round 2.
