Hawkeyes Shoot School Record 280 (-8) on Sunday in Arizona

PEORIA, Ariz. – The University of Iowa women’s golf team fired the best round in program history, shooting an eight-under par 280 during the second round of the Westbrook Spring Invitational on Sunday at the Westbrook Village Golf Club.

The Hawkeyes opened the tournament with an even par 288 before shooting the eight-under par 280 during the second round. Iowa is currently in 10th place with an eight-under par 568 (288-280), sitting eight shots out of third place.

The 280 bests Iowa’s 282 at the Johnie Imes Invitational in 2015. The 36-hole total of 568 is also the top two-round total in the record books.

Sophomore Madison Dabagia and junior Paula Miranda are pacing the team individually, both sitting in tie for 22nd place.

Dabagia opened the tournament with a career-low round of 68 (-4) before shooting an even par 72. Four of Dabagia’s last five rounds at the tournament (dating back to last season) have been at or below par. In the first round, the Indiana native had four birdies and 14 pars; she finished with seven birdies on the day.

Miranda opened the day with a one-under par 71 before firing a three-under par 69 over her second 18 holes. The Mexico native’s 69 was a season low, which included an eagle on the par five eighth hole.

Two other Hawkeyes – sophomore Kaitlyn Hanna and sophomore Riley Lewis – both finished with rounds in the red on Sunday. Hanna fired a career-low 69 (-3), while Lewis matched a season-best with a two-under par 70.

Kansas finished Sunday with a 30-under par 546 – eight shots better than Oklahoma. Kansas State’s Carla Bernat is the individual leader with a 10-under par 134 (68-66).
