Women's Golf Sets Three School Records in Final HCAC Tune-Up

FRANKLIN, Ind. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology set three women's golf school records in a dominant weekend performance at the Rose-Hulman / Franklin Invitational on Saturday and Sunday.

The Fightin' Engineers set a 36-hole team scoring record of 611 in rounds on Saturday at Hulman Links Golf Course and Sunday at Legends of Indiana Golf Course.  The Saturday round featured a school record 18-hole team score of 299, the first time in program history that Rose-Hulman has broken 300 in women's golf.

Namuunaa Nadmid set the third school record of the weekend with a 36-hole tournament score of 147.  She tallied rounds of 73 on Saturday and 74 on Sunday to set a new program mark and win the individual title.

Rose-Hulman swept the top five positions in the tournament, and all five players had their scores used at some point during the weekend in the 36-hole school record performance.

Nadmid won the event with rounds of 73 and 74.  Rachel Zhang came home second with scores of 76 and 77 for a two-day 153.

Rebecca Su finished third with scores of 78 and 79.  Caitlin Coverstone placed fourth with scores of 76 and 82.  Lauren Conley completed the top-five sweep with a fifth place and rounds of 74 and 86.

Individual scorers for Rose-Hulman on the weekend included Lily Byrne in 10th overall with scores of 83 and 90; Olivia Sexton with scores of 89 and 92; and Annie Gant with scores of 103 and 100.

Rose-Hulman easily outdistanced the team scoring competition with its tally of 611.  Franklin finished second at 687, with Hanover third at 704.

Rose-Hulman will compete in the HCAC championships at Bluffton Golf Course next weekend.  The Fightin' Engineers won the HCAC Preview at Bluffton on Sept. 21-22 and will hope to duplicate the feat in the conference event next weekend.
