Senior Natai Apichonlati finished in twelfth place for the Eagles.

The Eastern Michigan University women’s golf team traveled to Yorktown, Indiana on Sept. 20 to compete in the Brittany Kelly Cardinal Classic hosted by Ball State University.

The Brittany Kelly Cardinal Classic was a two-day, 54-hole classic that ended in a tie for sixth place among 12 teams for the EMU women’s golf team. 

Loyola University finished atop the leaderboard at 586 with Western Michigan University (589), Oakland University (590), the University of Akron (592), and Ball State (593) following closely behind.

EMU senior Natai Apichonlati fired back-to-back rounds of 73 for a two-over 146 in a tie for seventh. Playing as an individual, senior Adeline Lau added a 173 (86-87). The next was scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 20. The Eagles were paired with BSU and Akron.

Senior Natai Apichonlati individually recorded a six-over to finish twelfth out of 71 competitors at The Players Club in Yorktown Indiana, 222 (73-73-76). This was the sixth top-15 showing for the senior in 26 all-time events.

Senior Oliva Loberg tied for fourteenth with a 224 (76-76-72) with the final round marking her sixth career round of par-or-better.

Kyleigh Dull tied for nineteenth with a 225 (76-75-74), while Alyssa DiMarcantonio added a 233 (85-67-81) to take 47th place both sophomores.
