Iowa Wraps Up a Record-Breaking Westbrook Spring Invite

PEORIA, Ariz. – The University of Iowa women’s golf team wrapped up a record-breaking weekend at the Westbrook Spring Invitational on Monday at the Westbrook Village Golf Club. The Hawkeyes finished with team 18 and 54-hole school records and two individuals broke the top 54-hole program mark.

Iowa fired a nine-under par 279 — the top round in program history – with four players finishing the day with sub-par rounds. It is the second straight team-record round as the Hawkeyes fired a 280 during Sunday’s second round.

Iowa finished with an 847 total (288-280-279) over the two-day event, shattering the previous mark of 864, which was set at the Johnie Imes Invitational in 2015.

Two individuals – sophomore Madison Dabagia and junior Paula Miranda – posted 54-hole scores of 209 to break the school record score of 211. The top mark was previously held by sophomore Shannyn Vogler (2023) and Amy Ihm (2016).

Iowa improved every round of the tournament, opening with a 288 (+2) and 280 (-8) on Sunday before posting four sub-par rounds (five total including individual Ximena Benites) to fire the nine-under par 279 on Monday. The 279 and 280 are the top two rounds in program history.

The Hawkeyes finished the tournament in ninth place out of 14 teams at 17-under par. Kansas won the team title with a 43-under par 821 (277-269-275).

Dabagia had a team-best five birdies during her final round en route to a three-under par 69, while Miranda had a bogey-free day with 15 pars and three birdies to match the 69. Both players tied for 18th place with seven-under par 209s.

Miranda finished in the red in all three rounds (71-69-69), while Dabagia had two sub-par rounds to go along with an even par 72 (68-72-69). Dabagia has been at or below par in five of her six rounds at Westbrook the last two seasons.

The top 20 finish is the second of the season for Dabagia and the third of her career. It was Miranda’s first top-20 showing and the fifth such finish of her Hawkeye career.

The Hawkeyes also got sub-par rounds Monday from sophomore Riley Lewis (70, -2), sophomore Kaitlyn Hanna (71, -1) and Benites (70, -2). Benites’ round was a career best. All three players also posted career-low 54-hole totals (Lewis, 215; Hanna, 216; Benites, 216).

Wisconsin’s Chloe Chan was the individual medalist as she shot a seven-under par 65 to take the title. She finished the tournament with a 14-under par 202.


“We love this tournament and all the great support from the Hawkeye fans in the Westbrook community.  It was a great team effort and a week we can certainly build off of.  Madi and Paula did a great job of leading the way for us and it is exciting for them to hold the record. I know this team is hungry to compete at a high level and to continue to put their mark on this program. We look forward to next week in Jacksonville and continuing to build on this momentum.”
