Lewis Leads Hawkeyes Behind Career Day

HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. – Freshman Riley Lewis’s four-under par 68 highlighted the University of Iowa women’s golf team’s final round at the Ron Moore Intercollegiate on Sunday at the University of Denver Golf Club.

The Edwardsville, Illinois, native now sits tied for sixth all time for the lowest single round score en route to finish tied for 15th place with a 216 (E) total.

As a team, the Hawkeyes finished sixth overall after shooting a 288 on Sunday. This score brings their tournament total to 876, which is tied for the fifth-best 54-hole total in program history.
