Columbia, Mo.- The Hannbal-LaGrange University Women's Golf Team traveled to Columbia today to play in the Columbia College Cougar Classic. The Trojans really had their work cut out for them today as they faced off against Baker University, Columbia College, Culver-Stockton College, College of the Ozarks, Missouri Baptist University, and William Woods University. The team struggled in the tournament finishing 7th out of the 7 teams with only one player in the top 20.

Lynzie Emerson (SO/Williamsville, Ill.), led the team finishing 17th in the competition scoring 90/91. Rebecca Sheridan (FR/Mission Hills, Kans.) finished 31st with a score 104/102. Kyla Swanson (SR/Marceline, Mo.) came in 36th shooting 116/117. Kelcie Orr (JR/Cedar Hill, Mo.) finished 39th with a score of 145/133 with Jessica Tarter (SO/Cedar Hill, Mo.) close behind.

Coach Thomas Brennan said, "I am encouraged by our women's performance in the tournament this week.  It is a tough challenging course, and all of the girls showed improvement in areas of their games.  Lynzie continues to be very consistent for us this year which is great to see.  I am looking forward to next weeks tournament at a more forgiving course to see if we can lower our scores further,"

HLGU will be back on the road on October 9-10 to play in the William Woods Invitational hosted at Tanglewood Golf Course in Fulton, Missouri. They will close out their fall schedule at the Park University Invite played at two courses near Kansas City, Missouri on October 23-24.
