Hepler, Gohn Lead Women’s Golf to Top Five Finish

Sunday, Oct. 14-

The Mizzou women’s golf team competed at the Hoosier Fall Invitational over the weekend, clinching a fourth place finish with a team score of 910.

Thirteen teams entered the tournament hosted by the University of Indiana in Florence, Ind. Seventy-seven girls competed, 13 of those entering as individuals.

Wisconsin won the tournament with a score of 894, followed closely by Indiana, who barely missed securing a first place finish due to a scorecard violation.

The team’s most impressive performance came from freshman Katherine Hepler. Hepler individually placed eighth in the Invitational with first and third round scores of 73.

She tallied three birdies in the first round and boasted a six-over par performance in the second round. She walked away with a final score of 224, only eight-over par.

Following close behind by just one stroke was Hepler’s teammate, Taylor Gohn. Gohn tied for ninth over the weekend with Indiana’s own Rosie Davies at just nine-over par. Her best performance came in the second round in which she carded a three-under par with five birdies.

Two other Tigers finished in the top 30, including junior Ariana Savich, with a score of 232, and sophomore Alina Rogers, with a 233. Savich and Rogers ended up 23rd and 26th respectively.

The Tigers are hoping to improve their record when they get back on the course on October 21 for the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown.
