The streak of top-10 finishes for IU women’s golf continued at the Lady Buckeye Invitational.
IU traveled to Columbus for what would result in a sixth place finish for the Hoosiers.
The team got off to a slow start, shooting a 304 in round one to put them in a tie for ninth. However, IU turned it around by shooting a 293 in the second round.
IU was unable to carry that momentum to the final round as play was cancelled due to heavy rain.
In the two rounds that were played, IU got three players to place in the top 20.
Sophomore Elisa Pierre led the way for the Hoosiers as she finished in a tie for 10th, marking her first top-10 individual finish of the season.
Joining her in the top 20 were junior Erin Harper, tied-13th, and freshman Mary Parsons, tied-20th.
Parsons and fellow freshman Priscilla Schmid have been two of IU’s top golfers this season, but they both got off to rough starts as they shot a 79 and 81, respectively, in the first round.
Parsons, however, was able to turn it around by cutting down nine shots from the first to second round.
Schmid was unable to get the turnaround she needed as she shot a 77 in the final round.
IU finished third among Big Ten teams in the team’s final tournament before Big Ten Championships.
The team will travel back to Ohio next week, this time to Maineville for the conference tournament. Last season, the Hoosiers finished 13th among 14 teams at the tournament.
