SPRINGFIELD, Mo.- The Wichita State women's golf team shot their lowest team score of the season to finish in fourth place at the MSU/Payne Stewart Memorial on Sunday at Rivercut Golf Course. Freshman Bryce Schroeder finished in fourth place, and senior Hannah Martin finished one shot behind her, to finish in a tie for fifth.
The Shocker women shot a 54-hole score of 920 (313-298-309), which is the fourth best score in Shocker history. Their second round score of 298 was also one of the top scores in the Wichita State record book, as it tied the 2011-12 teams' first-round score at the Johnnie Imes Invitational.
Arkansas-Little Rock held their first place position after day one to take the team title, carding an 895 (298-295-302).
Bryce Schroeder had her best tournament as a Shocker, shooting a 224 (74-75-75). Schroeder's 54-hole score tied Catalina Guacaneme's 2005-06 score at the Marilynn Smith Invitational for fifth in Shocker history. Senior Hannah Martin added to her impressive season so far, carding a 225 (76-73-76), which is the sixth best score ever shot by a Shocker women's golfer. It is also Martin's second top-ten finish of the season.
Sophomore Daniela Rugeles finished in a tie for 27th in her first action of the season with a 235 (81-73-81). Seniors Hollie Weatherburn and Natalie Samb carded a 237 (83-77-77) and 245 (82-82-81), respectively.
