Women’s Golf Finishes Fourth at Lady Reddies Invitational

GLENWOOD, ARK. – The East Central University women’s golf team wrapped up their Fall Season by earning a fourth-place finish, out of nine teams, at the Henderson State Lady Reddies Invitational at the Glenwood Country Club.

“I felt like the team scored like they have been all Fall,” said head coach Danny Key.  “I was pleased with the closeness of the scores, which is a good indication of a similar talent level on the team. We are going to continue to work hard to reduce each golfer’s score by two or three strokes for the Spring.”
