Woes continue with season-low finish

One year made a huge difference for the Hoosiers, but not in a good way.\nLast year, IU set a program record by shooting a total of 864 through 54 holes and finishing fourth at the UNLV Spring Invitational. The performance springboarded IU all the way to the NCAA Championship last year.\nBut this past weekend, the Hoosiers could not find the same success as they shot an 889 and finished a season-low 11th place. \nIU coach Clint Wallman said the results were not encouraging.\n“I think we did okay,” Wallman said in a statement. “We really had it going there for awhile. We didn’t do anything spectacular, but we also didn’t make any big mistakes. Our intensity was good, we just need to make more putts.” \nSenior Lauren Harling was the one bright spot for the Hoosiers. Harling shot an even par for the tournament and finished 16th overall. \nWallman was pleased with Harling’s play.\n“Lauren played really well this entire tournament,” Wallman said in a statement. “She really seems to like this course, and her game is in great shape. It was only a matter of time before it came around.” \nRounding out IU’s lineup were sophomores Kellye Belcher and Anita Gahir, who finished 35th and 42nd, respectively. Senior Elaine Harris and sophomore Laura Nochta each finished in a tie for 60th place. \nWashington State and BYU each shot 5-under-par to share the tournament title while Oregon, Texas Tech and San Francisco rounded out the top five. \nOregon’s Cathryn Bristow won the individual title with a score of 8-under-par. \nThe Hoosiers return to action today when they compete in the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational in Austin, Texas. The three-round tournament will consist of one round each day, concluding on Wednesday.
