WOMEN'S GOLF: Cardinals compete at Bearcat Classic
The Ball State women's golf team competed in day one of the Bearcat Classic hosted by Cincinnati on Oct. 6 in Maineville, Ohio.
After a rain and 90-minute lightning delay, the tournament was cut short to one round of 36 holes, rather than the original 54. The second and final round has been rescheduled for tomorrow at TPC River’s Bend.
The Cardinals are sitting at 11th place overall after day one with a score of 317 (+29).
Senior Jenna Hague and sophomore Allison Lindley are currently in the overall top 10 of the tournament.
Hague is tied for fourth place at the end of the first round, with a 74 (+2) on a par 72 layout, and finished the day with 14 pars.
Trailing Hague by one stroke, Lindley is currently tied for seventh place after shooting a 75. She also posted the only eagle of the round, on the par-5 11th hole.
Each team in the tournament plays six golfers, but only count scores from the top four individuals. The Cardinals are 10 shots back of current leader and host Cincinnati (+19), with Morehead State (+20) and Eastern Kentucky (+21) close behind.
The team will continue to battle the harsh weather conditions as they compete in the second round on Oct. 7.
