6th of 11
The Dordt women's golf team participated in day one of the GPAC Championships at Willow Run Golf Course in Sioux Falls, South Dakota on Monday afternoon. The Defenders currently sit in sixth place with a team score of 375. Alyssa Fedders led the way with a round one total of 86. Fedders sits in 11th place while teammate Erin Olsen is tied for 20th after a round one total of 89. The Morningside Mustangs hold a 27 stroke lead over second place Mount Marty College. The Mustangs shot a low round of 320, while the Lancers posted a 347.
"Everyone got off to a slow start. Alyssa was strongest and able to post a 42 on her first nine holes. Erin posted a 50 on the front nine but was able to bounce back nicely with a 39 on the back nine. We can definitely improve all of our scores at a course that is set up for good scores," said head coach Mark Christians.

- Dordt has significantly improved their meet results from last season. In the 2015-2016 golf season, Dordt finished 12th out of 12 teams in each of the GPAC meets. Dordt will head into Day two of the fall GPAC Championships in sixth place overall with two competitors in the top 20.
- There are 11 teams and 55 golfers in each of the GPAC Championship meets. Nebraska Wesleyan University opted to become a member of NCAA Division 3 after the 2015-2016 athletic season, dropping the women's side of the GPAC to 11 teams.
- The GPAC Championships are in a new format for the 2015-2016 season. There will be one, two-day, championship even hosted in each the fall and the spring to determine the conference champion, national tournament qualifier, and individual medalist.
The Defenders return to action tomorrow at Willow Run Golf Course to close out the fall season. Tee time is set for 10:00am in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
