(Neb.)- Kasten Improves Eagles' Mark For Best Round
LAKEWOOD, Colo. -- Chadron State College freshman Logan Kasten shot a collegiate best 86 on Tuesday to mark an 18-stroke improvement over round one, as the Eagle golfers removed a whopping 22 strokes total from their Monday score to finish 14th at 386-364-750 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Fall Tournament at Fox Hollow Golf Course in Lakewood.
The Cheyenne East graduate gained more ground on day two than anyone else in the tournament, and was one of three golfers, along with the University of Colorado Colorado Springs's Megan Vernon, and Gabi Cortez of Colorado Christian, playing unattached, to birdie the par-three second hole. She finished tied for 68th individually with a total of 190.
Kasten was helped by improvements from her teammates.
Junior Sam Rahmig led the team with a card showing 88-83-171. Her 83 on Tuesday was her best so far this season, and the 171 over two rounds matched her best-ever performance against par for a fall tournament and put her at 51st.
Tori Meschke twice set new personal bests, shooting a round of 100 on Monday and 99 on Tuesday, to finish 73rd at 199.
Another freshman, Adrianna Weeldreyer, led the team through nine holes but several miscues on her 18th hole on Monday took the wind out of her sails, as she finished tied for 68th, along with Kasten, carding 94-96-190.
"Logan had a big turnaround, and so as a team, we improved 22 strokes," said Head Women's Golf Coach John Ritzen. "Logan played well, Sam played well as we expect, and Tori showed some promise also. Logan had the big improvement, though. Everyone had some bright spots."
Day one leader Colorado Mesa University held on to win the tournament, recording a 310-308-618, to win by three strokes over CSU-Pueblo and UCCS who tied for second at 621.
Holy Names University of California had the individual winner, Jamie Lopez, who shot 74-73-147.
The Eagles are back in action in two weeks at the Mustang Invitational, hosted by Southwest Minnesota State University at Marshall Golf Club in Marshall, Minnesota.
