FISHERS, Ind. – Led by senior Kara Brinkmann’s (Middletown, Ohio) hole-in-one, the Ohio University women’s golf team currently rests in a tie for sixth-place with Ball State after carding a round-one combined-team score of 318 (+30) on Friday (April 25) at the 2014 Mid-American Conference Championships at The Hawthorns Golf & Country Club in Fishers, Ind.
Despite early rain and late gusts of wind, Ohio’s mark of 318 bests last year’s performance in the first round of the league championships by 25 strokes and is the Bobcats' best showing in the tournament’s first round since 2006.
In her MAC Championships debut, freshman Hailey Hrynewich (Muskegon, Mich.) dazzled the greens with a first-round score of 73 (+1) to push her into a tie for third place. The rookie has now tallied six rounds of 75 or below in 2013-14.
In a day to remember, Brinkmann fired a 78 (+6) in the tournament’s first round to finish the day in a tie for 15th place. She achieved the lone eagle of the tournament when she struck a hole-in-one on the 15th hole, a par-3.
Senior Kristen Helmsdoerfer (Westerville, Ohio) rests in a tie for 33rd place after carding an 83 (+11).
Junior Julie Lechner (Powell, Ohio) and sophomore Angela Codian (Massillon, Ohio) currently sit in a tie for 36th place after tallying first-round scores of 84 (+12), respectively.
