GREEN BAY, Wis.
(GreenBayPhoenix.com) - Freshman Katie Pokrandt (Eau Claire, Wis.) continued
her strong play and led a trio of freshman golfers that carded 82s on Tuesday
to lead the Green Bay women's golf team at the Green Bay Invitational. Pokrandt
finished in a tie for 11th after rounds of 76 and 82 in the 36-hole event at Green
Bay Country Club.
The Phoenix A squad took ninth place in the tournament
with a team score of 679 while the B team finished in 11th place at 690.
Indianapolis won the event by 12 strokes with a team score of 629 while
Northern Illinois and Butler tied for second at 641. Butler's Jenna Peters was
the individual medalist at 3-over par 149 on the par-73 course.
Pokrandt has led the Phoenix in all three of the team's
rounds this season, and on Tuesday was joined by a pair of teammates and
classmates that had matching 82s. Freshmen Sammi Grunder (Pardeeville, Wis.) played the par-3s in a tournament-best 3-under
par for the tournament and finished in a tie for 35th. Lexi Wilson (Marinette, Wis.) bounced back from a tough opening
round to shoot an 82 on Tuesday and finish in a tie for 61st (100-82=182).
The B team was led by junior Grace Abitz (Appleton, Wis.) and freshman Steph Laude (Slinger, Wis.), who each finished the tournament in a
tie for 28th at 168.
