K-State women’s golf takes fourth in Indiana

By The Mercury

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — The Kansas State women’s golf team finished the Indiana Invitational in fourth place following one round of play on Sunday at the par-71, 6,477-yard Indiana University Golf Course.

The event, which was originally scheduled to consist of two rounds over two days, was reformatted to one round over after rainfall in the Bloomington area encouraged officials to suspend the event in action, and postpone play until Sunday.

K-State carded a 19-over-par 307 on Sunday.

The Wildcats were led by Whitney Pyle who shot a 4-over-par 75 to tie for seventh place.

This was Pyle’s first top-10 finish of her career as well as her highest career placing in a tournament. Pyle previously had a best finish of tying for 15th at the Marilynn Smith/Sunflower Invitational at Colbert Hills in September.

Gianna Misenhelter and Ami Storey both carded a 6-over-par 77 on the day to end in a tie for 16th. Carly Ragains grabbed a 7-over-par 78 to end tied for 28th place.

Rounding out the Wildcats’ lineup, Hanna Roos finished tied for 44th after shooting a 9-over-par 80 on Sunday.

Host school Indiana won the event title, finishing the day with a 10-over-par 298. The Hoosiers’ Kristtini Cain won a three-hole playoff for individual medalist honors after tying with two other competitors after 18 holes. She carded a 2-under-par 73 on Sunday.

K-State will be back in action April 27-29 when it competes in the Big 12 Championships at the Lawrence Country Club in Lawrence.
