Women golfers’ debut shortened by rain
From start to premature finish.
That described St. Xavier University’s ushering in of its inaugural women’s golf season. After taking the course for the first time ever on Saturday at the Benedictine University Invitational, the Cougars saw their scheduled two-day stint at St. Andrew’s Golf Course and Country Club cut in half when bad weather visited West Chicago on Sunday.
That meant Saturday’s scores were the deciding ones, and the circumstances prevented freshman Katie Reno from perhaps making a charge at the top spot. As it was, she took third in a 66-person field with a round of 79. Backing her was freshman teammate Taylor Thompson, who carded an 83 that was good for a sixth-place tie.
