APSU Sports Information
Murray, KY – Austin Peay State University women’s golf coach Sara Robson believes her team is heading into the Ohio Valley Conference, April 18th-20th, with momentum after her club finished tied for fourth, Saturday, at the Jan Weaver Invitational, played at Miller Memorial Golf Course.
Again fighting some difficult conditions, APSU shot its second straight 317 to finish at 952 (318-317-317), tying it with Southern Illinois.
Morehead State rallied to win the event, shooting a final-round 311 for a 935. Host Murray State was second (938) followed by Xavier (944).
“We are doing some really great things and playing some really solid golf,” Robson said. “We have to eliminate the mental mistakes and doing a better job of playing 50 yards on in.
“I have told this team all year long how talented they are, how good of a collective unit they are. We just have to go show people how good we can play.”
Incurring some difficult breaks late that cost her a few shots, Jessica Cathey finished third overall at 228, shooting a final day 76.
However, it was freshman teammate Taylor Goodley who had APSU’s best round, Saturday, shooting a 75 to end at 236. That also gave her a Top 10 finish, landing her in an eighth-place tie.
After two rounds of 82, Friday, Morgan Kauffman produced her tourney’s best round with an 80, Saturday. Ashton Goodley, who was solid, Friday, struggled to an 86, Saturday, while junior Amber Bosworth had an 87.
“Kauffman is close to playing really well. Taylor is peaking at the right time. She played well today. She played par golf; she had a couple of birdies to offset a couple of bogeys. Ashton struggled some today but she will all right.”
The Lady Govs now will have a week to prepare for the OVC tournament before heading to Alabama next weekend for Sunday’s practice round at Hampton Cove on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Owens Cross Roads, Alabama.
