SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – Senior Hadley Jennings (Trenton, Mo.) and freshman Arianna Gastelum (Chula Vista, Calif.) culminated their efforts for the Drake women's golf team at the 2014 Missouri Valley Conference Championship on Tuesday (April 22) turning in a pair of 11th-place finishes. Both Jennings and Gastelum concluded tournament competition posting identical 226 cumulative scorecards.

Jennings and Gastelum fired final-round efforts of 78 and 79, respectively, to conclude their tournaments with 54-hole marks of 226 (78-70-78) and 226 (72-75-79). The 11th-place showing was Jennings’ best finish at the league tournament during her Drake career.

By virtue of their performances, Jennings and Gastelum were honored as top-18 flag recipients. 

As a team, Drake finished the three-day event with a 934 (305-311-318) scorecard.

“We didn’t finish the way we would have like today as a team as the golf course played a lot harder with the wind and we didn’t adjust very well,” Drake head coach Leanne Smith commented. “Arianna (Gastelum) and Hadley (Jennings) had great tournaments for us. Getting two players winning top-18 flag honors is a step in the right direction for our program. We will learn from this experience and continue to work this summer towards improving beginning this fall.”

Sophomore Katie Clausen (Hinton, Iowa) recorded an 81 over the final 18 holes to place 40th with a 242 (78-83-81) total.

Junior Danielle Brooks (Red Wing, Minn.) and Ashley Brooks (Red Wing, Minn.) rounded out the Bulldogs’ efforts posting rounds of 80 and 85, respectively.

The MVC Championship marked the final event in the Bulldogs’ 2013 spring campaign.

DRAKE RESULTS: Arianna Gastelum (72-75-79=226/T-11th), Hadley Jennings (78-70-78=226/T-11th), Katie Clausen (78-83-81=242/T-40th), Danielle Brooks (77-88-80=245/46th) and Ashley Brooks (94-83-85=262/50th).
