Phoenix Finishes Fourth in Final Tune-up
CHICAGO, Ill. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - Junior Christina De Boer (Onalaska, Wis.) finished in tenth place as the Green Bay women's golf team took fourth place at the Loyola University Invitational on Sunday at the Golf Club of Illinois. The Phoenix had rounds of 344 and 357 in the 36-hole event, which was the team's final tune-up before next weekend's Horizon League Championships.
Loyola won its home tournament by seven strokes over Valparaiso, with Ann Vrdolyak winning individual medalist honors. Sunday's 18 holes were played in gusty conditions with winds over 20 miles per hour.
De Boer had the best round of the tournament for the Phoenix on Saturday, carding an 82 before Sunday's 89 left her in 10th place. Sophomore Molly Fassbinder finished in a tie for 12th after rounds of 84 and 89. Jacki Johnson (Neenah, Wis.) was tied for 17th with consistent efforts of 87 and 90 while seniors Eleanor Yorobe (Bloomington, Minn.) and Steph Fifield (Oconto Falls, Wis.) finished in 22nd and 23rd, respectively, to round out the Phoenix players.
The Phoenix will next head to Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla., for the Horizon League Championships from Friday-Sunday at Mission Inn Resort.
