LEDBETTER, Ky. - Senior Chelsey Falk (Glenwood, Minn.) fired back-to-back rounds of 73 and 74 to lead the Drake women's golf team to an eighth-place showing (317-314=631) among 11 teams after 36 holes at the Murray State Drake Creek Invitational hosted by the Drake Creek Golf Club on Monday (Sept. 17).

"It was nice for Chelsey (Falk) to turn in quality back-to-back rounds today and continue her solid play from our first tournament," Bulldog head coach Leanne Smith commented.  "It was also good to get some quality rounds from Hadley (Jennings)."

Falk's two-round score of 147 (73-74) places her in a fourth-place tie, three shots behind tournament leader Shay Sullivan of Belmont.

Junior Hadley Jennings (Trenton, Mo.) shot an opening-round 77 before firing a second-round 73 to move into a 13th-place tie with a 36-hole score of 150 (77-73).

Sophomore Danielle Brooks (Red Wing, Minn.) and freshman Katie Clausen (Hinton, Iowa) recorded tournament scores of 160 and 174 to stand in 34th and 54th place, respectively.  Brooks (78-82=160) turned in rounds of 78 and 82, while Clausen (89-85=174) signed off on scores of 89 and 85.

"Overall there were some good team scores fired today," said Smith.  "To be right in the middle of the pack with our competition from the MVC in the tournament knowing that we're only playing with four players is encouraging, especially this early in the season."

The Bulldogs conclude play at the Murray State Drake Creek Invitational on Tuesday (Sept. 18) with an 8:00 a.m. shotgun start.

DRAKE RESULTS: Chelsey Falk (73-74=147/T-4th), Hadley Jennings (77-73=150/T-13th), Danielle Brooks (78-82=160/T-34th) and Katie Clausen (89-85=174/54th).
