GOODYEAR, Ariz. (April 10, 2018) – Elizabeth Freeman posted her first under-par round of the 2017-18 season as Oklahoma Christian ended play Tuesday in Western New Mexico’s Mustang Intercollegiate at Palm Valley Golf Club.
Freeman, a junior from Tulsa, shot a 1-under 71 on the 5,900-yard course and finished 37th in the 104-woman field with a 150 score over the two-round tournament. It was her best round since going 4-under at Fort Sill Golf Course in Fort Sill, Okla., in the Oklahoma Intercollegiate tournament in October 2016.
Finishing two shots ahead of Freeman this week was another OC junior, Kate Goodwin, who tied for 23rd after a final-round 76. OC freshman Shaley Goad shot a 79 and tied for 64th at 159, while freshman Felicity Wittenberg‘s 84 left her at 163, in 86th place.
The Lady Eagles played without their No. 1 player, sophomore Abigail Rigsby, who sat out the tournament due to injury. In the team race, they placed 14th among 20 squads at 620 after posting their second straight 310 on Tuesday.
Dallas Baptist (Texas) won the team title with a two-round score of 564, and DBU’s Evelyn Arguelles took the individual title at 4-under 140.
The Lady Eagles now will prepare for the Heartland Conference Championship, to be played April 22-24 at Slick Rock Golf Course in Horseshoe Bay, Texas.
