WARRENSBURG, MO – Following a Spring break trip to Arizona in early March, the Wayne State College women’s golf program was back in action earlier this week during a two-day road invite.

According to a release from the Wayne State Athletics office, Millard North freshman Jazmine Taylor fired a final round 79 and helped the Wayne State women’s golf team set a new single day school record with a 335.

WSC battled rainy conditions on Tuesday, March 23 to close play in the Midwest Intercollegiate Invitational played in Warrensburg, Missouri at Mules National Golf Club.

As a team, Wayne State improved four spots in the team standings and finished 10th out of 19 teams with a two-day team score of 680 following rounds of 345 and 335.

Wayne State’s round of 335 Tuesday was four shots better than the previous school record of 339 set two weeks ago at the SMSU Spring Invite in Litchfield Park, Arizona.

Host Central Missouri captured the team title with a two-day total of 609, 19 shots better than Lindenwood and Central Missouri B who tied for second at 628. Sioux Falls (635) and Drury (645) closed out the top five teams.

Taylor led the Wildcats with a two-day score of 165 following rounds of 86 and 79. The Tuesday round of 79 for Taylor was just one shot off the school record of 78 set by Dawn Garrett at Green Valley Golf Course in Sioux City, Iowa on September 10, 1993. Bancroft sophomore Paige Peters was next at 173 after shooting scores of 86 and 87.

Other Wildcat players included Abbey Kurmel posting a 175 (81-94), Tricia Hemann shot 176 (92-84) and Sophie Jansa finished with a 179 after shooting rounds of 94 and 85.

The next meet for the Wildcat women’s golf team will be Monday and Tuesday, March 29 and 30, at the Missouri Western State/Holiday Inn Express Invite in St. Joseph, Missouri.
