ECU women’s golf finishes 13th at Drury Fall Shootout

Ada —  

The East Central women’s golf team finished 13th of 19 teams at the Drury Fall Shootout at Silo Ridge Country Club in Bolivar, Mo.

The Tigers shot a 682 as a team, but improved 10 strokes from day one to day two of the tournament.  The first day of the event ECU shot a 346 as a team, with their best scores coming from senior Ashley Cardwell (82) and freshman Megan Gowens (87).  On day two, Cardwell carded an 81 and the second-best score came from senior Emily Wharton, who improved from 93 to an 84.

“This was an outstanding field of participants and we know that we didn’t compete at our best,” said head coach Danny Key.  “I was pleased to see the 10-stroke improvement from day one to day two and we can continue to improve as a team.”

The Tigers top finisher was Cardwell, who shot a 163 (82-81) on the par 72 course.  The Mustang, Okla., native finished in a tie for 33rd.  Gowens was tied for 67th with a 173 (87-86), sophomore Shay Shaw was tied for 74th after shooting a 175 (90-85) and sophomore Lindsey Lunceford (87-90) and Wharton (93-84) were both tied for 80th with a score of 177.

“Ashley Cardwell was our most consistent golfer over the tournament on a tough course,” added Key.  “I was also proud of Emily Wharton on coming back and not giving up after her performance Monday.”

ECU will return to action Sept. 17-18 at the Northeastern Oklahoma State Women’s Classic at Cherry Spring Country Club in Tahlequah.
