Wildcats Win Inaugural Sunflower Showdown
Sept. 26, 2001
Manhattan, Kan. - The Kansas State women's golf team won the inaugural Sunflower Showdown, a one-day, 18-hole event, against Kansas, 305-320, Wednesday at the Colbert Hills Golf Course in Manhattan.
Kansas' Jennifer Bawanan downed K-State sophomore Christine Boucher in a one-hole playoff to take the individual title after both players fired a 1-under-par 71. Senior Annie Schneider, who played as an individual for K-State, shot a round of 77 and took third place.
Edie Murdoch, Miranda Smith and Sarah Heffel all fired rounds of 78 for the Wildcats. Elise Carpentier shot an 82, Morgan Hagler fired an 87 and Stephanie Limoges shot an 89 to lead K-State to its title.
"I am very pleased with how the team played today," head coach Kristi Knight said. "Boucher played a great round, but she just got a bad lie in the bunker in the playoff. The team played very consistent today and I am proud of the way they performed. This gives us confidence going to Stillwater and the rest of the season."
K-State will compete in the Big 12 Fall Invitational, Sept. 30-Oct. 2, at Karsten Creek Golf Course in Stillwater, Okla.
