The LeTourneau University women’s golf team finished fifth at the 2016 ASC Women’s Golf Championships at the Oakmont Country Club in Corinth, Texas.
The YellowJackets played the final nine holes for an 18 hole total of 349 and a two-day, 36-hole total of 697. The fifth-place finish matches the best by a LeTourneau team since a similar finish in 2011. UT Tyler took home the team title with a 603 (297-306) including individual winner Morgan Loth, who posted a 146 (72-74).
“I am very pleased with the fifth-place finish at the conference tournament,” said first-year head coach Walt Williams. “The girls played well both days, and these were the two lowest scores of the spring for us.”
Senior Sydney Cash led LETU with a 167 (84-83) to share 16th-place honors; plus freshman Kristin Boone finished 19th with a 168 (82-86). “Sydney and Kristin both had a great week and finished in the top 20 of a strong field,” said Williams.
Sophomore Melanie Pedigo was 24th with 180 (90-90), followed by junior Alisa Wilson, who was 25th with 182 (92-90) and freshman Faith Williams, who shot 183 (93-90) for 26th place honors. “The girls and I are in agreement, we can’t wait until next year,” said an excited Williams.
A two-RBI single by senior Sean Sellers in the second and a pair of bases-loaded walks in the third propelled the LeTourneau University baseball team to a 4-2 win over Texas College on Tuesday night.
The YellowJackets (12-16), who extend their winning streak to a season-high four games, were led by senior Brandon Applewhite, who had two of the five hits.
LeTourneau utilized five different pitchers in the mid-week contest including freshman starter Alec Ovalle. The newcomer from Devine held the Steers to two hits and struck out five in his first start in six appearances.
The Steers (3-22) ended the shutout bid with a pair of runs in the eighth inning to spoil the shutout bid.
Next, LeTourneau’s team is in Austin facing Concordia in a three-game series. The action will get underway on Friday night at 7:00 p.m. at Tornado Field.
