Joliet, ILL. -- The Holy Cross Saints women's golf team closed out their fall season with a second place finish at the Fall Invitational hosted by the University of St. Francis (Ill.). After 36-holes at Inwood Golf Course, the Saints finished with a team score of 722, trailing only the tournament champions of St. Francis.
"I thought the team did a pretty good job of finishing strong," said head coach Tim Holt. "This team has already come so far from the start of the season up until now. I really believe we have the potential to do great things once we get into the spring season."
The Saints put together back-to-back rounds of 361 to finish the event with a team score of 722.
Freshman Mia DelPrince (Fishers, Ind.) opened up the scoring for the Saints in round one with score of 87. Following DelPrince, Emily Duff (Rochester, Ind.) scored a round of 89 on day one of the tournament.
The Saints rounded out day one of the tournament with a 91 from Kylie Day (Zionsville, Ind.), a 94 from Katie Krohn (Noblesville, Ind.), a 98 from Victoria Anania (Charleston, SC) and a 100 from Kendra Luckey (Danville, Ind.).
In day two of the Fall Invitational, it was Emily Duff who finished with the low round for the Saints. Duff shot an 88 on day two for a 36-hole total of 177 and a ninth place individual finish.
Freshman Mia DelPrince closed out her round with an 89 to finish with a team-best 36-hole score of 176 and an eighth place individual finish.
The Saints shot a round two score of 361 to finish with a team total of 722.
St. Francis (Ill.) took home the team championship with a team score of 661 (332, 329). Taylor Thompson of Saint Xavier (Ill.) finished first place individually with a 36-hole score of 157 (79, 78). Saint Xavier, however, was unable to qualify for a team score after not having enough participants.
"It was good to see the majority of the girls lower their scores on day two," continued Holt. "Now is the time when we need to continue working on our games as we prepare for the spring season when the conference championship will take place. I have a lot of confidence that we'll continue to see growth from the girls and we will be a real threat once conference rolls around."
With the St. Francis Fall Invitational in the books, the Saints currently do not have any more fall tournaments on their schedule. Stay tuned for updates on the spring schedule when it's released.
The Saints closed out the fall season with three second place finishes and an individual tournament champion.
