Kim stands out, Ball State falls short at Rocket Classic

At Monday and Tuesday’s Rocket Classic in Canton, Ohio, Ball State Women’s Golf placed ninth out of 10 competing teams. 

While the squad finished in ninth place, Liz Kim tied for fifth place in 50 overall players competing. In round 1 Kim shot a 73, 76 in round two and 78 in round three to finish with a score of 227. 

The first-place individual score in the invitational was a 222. 

Head coach Katherine Mowat shared his thoughts on the weekend. 

“The last two days we were led by Liz, who played solid and steady all tournament,” Mowat said. “While the winds picked up and her putts weren’t falling, she remained poised and had the title within reach.” 

Central Michigan’s team had the top-scoring individual and team, which ended up scoring a 900 to Ball State’s 959. 

Mowat remains optimistic despite the team’s defeat over Monday and Tuesday’s invitational. 

“She (Kim) and the rest of the team are ready to finish strong next week.” 

Next weekend, October 18-20, the team will compete in the Ozarks National Invitational in Hollister, Mo. This will be the squad’s final tournament of the fall season.
