The Hiram College women’s golf team finished sixth of eight teams at the University of Mount Union Purple Raider Classic at Tannenhauf Country Club in Alliance.
Originally scheduled to be the final round of the Mount Union Spring Invitational, the two-day event was split into two separate 18-hole tournaments due to the threat of impending inclement weather causing select teams to forego what would have been today’s final round.
The Terriers posted an 18-hole team total 387 strokes to place sixth overall. Baldwin-Wallace University captured the team title with 330 strokes. Otterbein University was second at 340 strokes and Notre (Ohio) Dame College rounded out the top three at 357 strokes.
Individually for Hiram, freshman Jenelle Bayus (Cortland/Lakeview) led the Terriers with a single-round total 95 strokes (48+47=95) on the par 72, 5,945-yard course layout and placed 23rd overall. Freshman Megan Jennings (Stow/Stow-Munore Falls) was second with 96 strokes (49+47=96) and junior Carrie Dyer (Canton/McKinley) was third with 97 strokes (50+47=97). Freshman Alexa Griswold (Conneaut) carded the fourth-lowest round with 99 strokes (49+50=99) and freshman Taylor Stott (Akron/Archbishop Hoban) rounded out the Hiram competitors with an 18-hole total 105 strokes (55+50=105).
Hiram is scheduled to compete in The College of Wooster Invitational on Saturday-Sunday, April 20-21 at the Wooster Country Club in Wooster.
