RICHMOND, Ind. – The Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College women's golf team had a strong showing on a hot and humid day at Richmond Elks Country Club in the Indiana University East Invitational. The Pomeroys finished third in their season opening outing.
Sophomore Chloe Buerster led the way for SMWC with an 87, while freshman Elizabeth Yeazel and sophomore Karlie Atkinson-Fritz each shot a 91. Buerster, Yeazel and Atkinson-Fritz all finished inside the top 10, with Buerster finishing tied for sixth and Yeazel and Atkinson-Fritz finishing tied for ninth.
The Pomeroys shot a 368 to place third behind Grace College and Indiana University East. SMWC finished ahead of Oakland City and Shawnee State in what was a tremendous improvement from last year's IU East Invite in which the Pomeroys shot a 405.
SMWC will be back in action on September 3 and 4 when they compete in the Anderson Invitational at Killbuck Golf Course in Anderson, Ind.
