Hawkeyes Finish 18th At Kent Youel Invitational

Oct. 31, 2007

IOWA CITY, IA – – The Iowa Hawkeyes women’s golf team closed out the fall season Wednesday by finishing 18th at the Kent Youel Invitational in Honolulu, HI. Junior Tyrette Metzendorf was Iowa’s best individual competitor, finishing in 18th place (+11, 227).

In what Head Coach Kelly Crawford thought to be the toughest competition that her squad would face all year, the Hawkeyes finished the first round tied for ninth but could not maintain that ranking in the second and third rounds. Pac-10 powerhouses UCLA, USC and Cal finished 1-2-3 respectively.

Senior Jill Marcum tied for 56th place (+23, 239) and freshman Brianna Coopman finished tied for 81st place (+32, 248), while playing in just her second career tournament. Senior Melanie Boyles withdrew in the third round after shooting a 166 through two rounds.

With the fall season over, the Hawkeyes are out of action until early February, when they travel to Mexico to participate in the Baja Invitational on February 11.
