SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa women’s golf team finished seventh at the Challenge at Onion Creek in Austin, Texas.
The invitational, which featured 13 teams from all over the country, took place at the Onion Creek Original Course in Austin and was hosted by Texas State.

The Hawkeyes carded a three-round total of 895 (plus-55), 33 strokes behind first-place Gonzaga.

Senior Kristi Cardwell paced the Hawkeyes once again through the first two rounds. The Iowa senior shot identical rounds of 72 (plus-2) on the first day and finished by carding a third round score of 73 on the final day. She finished with a score of 217 (plus-7), tied for 10th with Texas Tech junior Hannah Arnold.  It was her second top-10 finish this season.

Sophomore Lauren English also helped Iowa. English strung together three of her strongest rounds this season, shooting a first-round 73, and she managed to shave even more strokes off in the latter rounds. English wrapped up the final two rounds with scores of 71 and 72, respectively.  Her three-round total of 216 was the team’s best, and she finished tied for eighth. 

Freshmen Briana Midkiff and Amy Ihm shot scores of 230 and 245, respectively. Sophomore Shelby Phillips carded a 232.

This was the Hawkeyes’ third competition in two weeks. They will be out of action until April 20, when they head to Columbus, Ohio, for the Lady Buckeye Spring Invitational.
