UD Fall Invite - Final
KETTERING, Ohio – Ohio Women’s Golf ended the fall portion of its 2012-13 schedule on a high note Tuesday, placing third at the University of Dayton Fall Invitational. Freshman Angela Codian placed second in the field of 92 golfers as the Bobcats finished ahead of 14 teams.
The third-place result marks Ohio’s best finish of the 2012 fall season and is Ohio’s best finish since April, when it earned the same standing at the Falcon Invitational in Bowling Green, Ohio.
Angela Codian led the way for the Bobcats, placing second with a two-round score of 141. The freshman shot a career-low mark of 68 on Monday and followed it up with a solid 73 on Tuesday. Codian’s one-under par mark was just two strokes off the individual winner, Kelly Voigt of Valparaiso.
Sarah Tranelli (Penfield, N.Y.) was not far behind Codian, shooting an impressive 151 to finish 14th. The score of 151 was a career low for a 36-hole tournament for the senior and the 14th-place finish was also a career best.
Next to finish for Ohio were Julie Lechner (Powell, Ohio) and Kara Brinkmann (Middletown, Ohio). Lechner shot a 156 to end tied for 27th while Brinkmann shot a score of 158 to finish tied for 36th.
Rounding out Ohio’s participation in the team portion of the tournament was Kristen Helmsdoerfer (Westerville, Ohio). She finished tied for 59th place with a two-round score of 163. Helmsdoerfer improved dramatically from Monday to Tuesday, dropping nine strokes from her first-round score.
Freshman Lauren McKinzie (Medina, Ohio) had a strong showing in the individual portion of the tournament, finishing tied for 43rd in the field with a score of 160.
