Drake Struggles On Second Day Of State Farm MVC Women's Golf Championship
TERRE HAUTE, Ind. - The Drake women's golf team carded a second-round score of 341 to stand ninth of 10 teams after 36 holes at the State Farm Missouri Valley Conference Championship hosted by Indiana State at the Country Club of Terre Haute on Monday (April 23).
The Bulldogs maintain a 36-hole mark of 664 (323-341=664).
"Winds played a factor in play today and we really struggled in our efforts, Drake head coach Leanne Smith commented. "We're hoping to show improvement tomorrow and finish off our campaign on a strong note."
Junior Chelsey Falk (Glenwood, Minn.) fired the Bulldogs' low round of the day shooting an 82 for a two-day score of 163, which is tied for 32nd-place.
Two strokes off her tournament total is freshman Danielle Brooks (Red Wing, Minn.), who posted an 84, to situate herself in 37th-place with a 165 (81-84=165) total.
Sophomore Hadley Jennings (Trenton, Mo.) fired the low round for the Bulldogs of 79, but unfortunately for Drake, her score was disqualified following the round for a rules infraction.
The disqualification resulted in a 10-stroke swing for the Bulldogs, who will look to put forward a strong finish when the final 18 holes tee off on Tuesday (April 24) at 8:30 a.m. CT.
DRAKE RESULTS: Chelsey Falk 163 (81-82=163/T-32nd), Danielle Brooks 165 (81-84=165/37th), Paige Menze 170 (84-86=170/41st) and Christy Wittmer 177 (88-89=177/T-47th) and Hadley Jennings 77 (77-DQ=77/T-49th).
