Sept. 17, 2002
Lincoln, Neb.- In its opening tournament of the fall season, the K-State women's golf team took third place at the Chip-N Club Invitational at the Wilderness Ridge Golf Club in Lincoln, Neb. The Wildcats shot a final round of 304 to finish with a score of 919 (311-304-304).
"We were competitive today," head coach Kristi Knight said. "We had a chance to win. The difference was the first round yesterday. We didn't play well and that hurt us. But after that I thought we played strong."
Junior Christine Boucher finished in a three-way tie with Iowa State's Laura Wells and Missouri's Elin Ohlsson for third place. Boucher shot a 74 in the final round to finish at 5-over 221 (75-72-74). Junior transfer Karen Quintelier finished in a three-way tie for 12th place by shooting a 231. Senior Elise Carpentier finished two strokes back from Quintelier tying for 17th place.
Iowa State took home the team title with a combined score of 914 (308-300-306). Missouri was two strokes behind the Cyclones after carding a final round 299, the best team score of the tournament.
"We were the second best team today," Knight said. "There is nothing to hang our heads about. We will build on this."
The Wildcats are back in action Friday through Sunday at Michigan State's Mary Fossum Invitational in East Lansing, Mich.
