QUOTING HEAD COACH Megan Menzel
“We are excited to get back out and compete at the Johnie Imes Invite. The team has been working hard on some specific areas of our games that we felt needed some attention. The team is eager to put it all together.”
The Hawkeyes will compete against 17 teams: Redlands Community College, Oklahoma City University, Montana, Missouri State, Indiana, Florida International, Kansas State, Colorado State, Louisville, UALR, Mississippi State, Southern Methodist, UMKC, Bradley, Illinois State, Wichita State, and Eastern Michigan.
LAST TIME OUT
The Hawkeyes competed in the Dick McGuire Invitational (Sept. 17-18) and finished 13th in a field of 17 teams. Iowa carded a 54-hole score of 919 (+43) over three rounds of play. “We put three better rounds together at the Dick McGuire and we’ll continue working hard to get better each week as the season progresses,” said coach Menzel.
CARDWELL FIRES FIRST CAREER HOLE-IN-ONE
Senior Kristi Cardwell recorded her first career hole-in-one at the Dick McGuire Invitational. Cardwell used a seven iron to ace the par-3, 137-yard eighth hole during the first round of action. She carded a 72 (-1) in the first round. Cardwell made par on eight of her first nine holes, including six in a row to start. Cardwell was one-over with two holes remaining, before recording her hole-in-one. “It’s an uphill par-3, so I couldn’t see the hole,” Cardwell said. “My parents were up by the green, and they said it hit about eight feet short and rolled in. It was pretty exciting.” Cardwell finished the tournament tied for ninth place with a 54-hole score of 220 (+1).
