This past weekend the IU women’s golf team played its last tournament of the fall.
The Hoosier Fall Invitational took place Saturday, Oct. 18, and Sunday, Oct. 19 in Indianapolis, with IU as the host team.
The tournament had 54 holes and was a par-71 course.
Other teams that played at the Invitational included the fellow Big Ten teams — Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska, Penn State and Purdue — along with nine other non-conference teams.
All seven of IU’s available-for-action players competed in the tournament.
IU’s team-play consisted of freshmen Anna Sanjuan and Theresa-Ann Jedra, sophomore Maria Mancini, junior Elizabeth Tong and senior Sophie Hayashi.
Juniors Sarah Dusman and Kamryn Klawitter competed as individuals.
At the end of the first day of play, with one round completed and the second round stopped due to darkness, the Hoosiers were ranked 13 and had finished the day with a score of 18-over par.
“Today it was important to be mentally tough,” Coach Clint Wallman said after the first day. “We faced some challenging course conditions with rain and cold weather.”
The second day of the tournament opened at 9:00 a.m. Sunday.
At the end of the tournament, freshman Ana Sanjuan led the team with a tie for 25 and a score of 225 (77-75-73).
Jedra, in her first tournament with the top team, tied for 62 with a score of 234 (76-77-81). Jedra had nine holes of par on the final day.
“A really bright spot was freshman Theresa-Ann Jedra, posting two great rounds to help carry the team.” Wallman said.
The Hoosiers finished the Invitational at 13 with a score of 916 (308-304-304). The team is set to return to season in February.
This tournament was “a good way to round out the fall season,” Wallman said. “We’re looking forward to prepping and getting ready for a great season to start in the spring in Florida.”
