Women’s Golf Improves Team Score on Final Day of Don Benbow Spring Invite
Roslyn Leitner led the team this week in Florida.

The Valparaiso University women’s golf team improved its team score on the second and final day of the Don Benbow Spring Invitational, which was hosted by Butler this week at the par-72, 6297-yard Ardea Country Club in Oldsmar, Fla. Roslyn Leitner (Dundee, Ill. / Harry Jacobs) led the team for the 36-hole event.

How It Happened

  • A trio of Beacons shared the team lead in Tuesday’s round as Leitner, Katie Schreiner (Fenton, Mo. / Summit) and Anna Fay (Ada, Mich. / Forest Hills) all carded 82s in Round 2.
  • This brought Leitner’s 36-hole score to 166, helping her finish tied for 58th in a 97-golfer field.
  • Schreiner followed at 169, a stroke ahead of Fay and Taylor Skibinski (Michigan City, Ind. / Michigan City), who both needed 170 strokes over the two rounds.  
  • Schreiner eagled the par-4 third hole in Round 2, notching the only eagle by any player in the entire tournament.
  • Valpo improved Monday’s team score by seven strokes, carding a 334 on Tuesday to finish the event at 675. The Beacons moved ahead of IUPUI-B on the team leaderboard to finish 15th.
  • Western Michigan took the team title at 608, while Quinnipiac’s Leeyen Peralta was the individual medalist with a 146.
