Lemont, ILL. -- The Holy Cross Saints took part in the Fall Invitational, hosted by Robert Morris (Ill.) University, at Glen Eagles Golf Club on Tuesday afternoon as part of the four-team, one round event. The Saints took home second place in the event with a team score of 341, trailing only the tournament champions from Olivet Nazarene (Ill.) by 14 strokes. Freshman Kyle Day (Zionsville, Ind.) took home the first place individual finish with a tournament score of 78.
"It was a great tournament for our girls," stated head coach Tim Holt. "Everyone did a great job contributing and we were able to get a second place finish."
Freshman Kylie Day's round of 78 and first place individual finish is the first time a Saints women's golfer has won a tournament in the history of the program. Day finished with back-to-back 9-hole scores of 39 to pave her way to the first place finish.
Sarah Hartle (Warsaw, Ind.) contributed with a 43 on the front and a 41 on the back to finish with a tournament score of 84 and a tie for sixth place individually.
Just behind Hartle, Emily Duff (Rochester, Ind.) finished the event with an 87 (43, 44) and a tie for tenth place individually. Duff is the third Saints golfer to place in the top-ten of the event.
Kendra Luckey (Danville, Ind.) shot her low round of the young fall season with a tournament score of 92 (47, 45). This is the second lowest round total for Luckey in her young career with the Saints.
Mia DelPrince (Fishers, Ind.) closed out her round with a 94 (45, 49) and a tie for 15th place individually.
Rounding out the Saints golfers, senior captain Victoria Anania (Charleston, SC) scored a 103 in her first event of the season. After a front nine score of 57, Anania cut nine strokes off on the back nine to finish with a 46.
"We're continuing to see steady progress with our women's team this season," continued Holt. "It's great to see the progress this group has made just three events into the fall season.
"We're also very excited for Kylie and her first place finish. She played a great round and the future is very bright for her as a freshman. We will continue to work hard at practice and get ready for our next event."
The second place finish for the Saints is the best finish the women's golf team has had in the history of the program.
The Saints return to the links on Monday, September 30th for round one of the Oakland City University Invitational.
