Mount Marty Invite
The Dordt Women's golf team spent the day in Yankton, South Dakota as they wrapped up the Mount Marty College Invitational to kick off the 2016-2017 golf campaign. Dordt finished the two day meet in seventh place, led by freshmen Erin Olsen's two round low of 171. Olsen finished tied for 9th overall. Alyssa Fedders round of 90 was the best performance of the day for the Defenders. Fedders finished with a 174, good enough to tie for 14th overall.
"Overall it was a good start to our fall season. Erin and Alyssa posted good scores in their first college golf meet. Today were tougher conditions with wind and very slow play," said head coach Mark Christians.
The host, Lancers, took home both the team and medalist awards. Mount Marty finished with a team score of 690. Senior Logan Wagner proved to be the most consistent golfer of the 2-day event with rounds of 79 and 83 for a winning total of 162.
