Burlington–Olivia Lange (So., Buckeburg, Germany, Business Management) released her red marker Thursday as she led William Penn’s women’s golf team to the crown at the Iowa Wesleyan Invitational.
WPU was first of five teams with a par-72 score of 322 at the Burlington Golf Club. William Penn’s “C” and “B” teams followed in second and third place with scores of 366 and 371, respectively.
On a day when scoring was problematic for the rest of the field, Lange played the best round of her college career, posting a one-under 71. She’s only the fourth person in program history to beat par, but the second this year, joining teammate Gabriela Franco (Fr., Tracy, Calif., Exercise Science) in the exclusive club.
Franco finished second Thursday with a score of 81, while Courtney Jackson (Sr., Liberty Lake, Wash., Digital Communication) secured the bronze position at 83.
Carlee Frayne (Jr., Garner, Iowa, Sport Management) was next at 87 to finish fifth overall, and Jaclyn Wojciechowski (Sr., Graytown, Ohio, Business Management) was eighth at 89.
Olivia Cramer (So., Lawton, Mich., Civil and Computer Engineering) led the Statesmen reserve players with a fourth-place finish at 86.
“Yesterday was the opportunity for us to play another round of competition before some big tournaments in the coming weeks,” said head coach Elise Warne. “Olivia had an outstanding performance and we are so proud of her! As a team, we were able to learn where we need to work to better prepare for our next event.
Next up: William Penn is taking two weeks off and returning to action October 17-18 as host of the TPC Deere Run Invitational at the TPC Deere Run Golf Course.
