CONNIE ELLETT WINS 33RD ILLINOIS JUNIOR GOLF TITLE

|

Incoming freshman golfer Connie Ellett took first place in the 33rd Illinois Junior Golf Championship after shooting a two-under par 74 at the University of Illinois Orange Course in Savoy earlier this week.


Ellett, who will join her sister Taylor on the Northern Illinois University women's golf team latter this month, is a second-generation Huskie. Taylor and Connie's mother, Sue, was a member of former head coach Pam Tyska's first women's golf team in 1986.


Connie was a four-year letterwinner at Hampshire High School and was named team most valuable player all four years. A three-time 2A state qualifier, she placed 25th as a sophomore, 23rd as a junior and runner-up as a senior.She is a two-time Big Northern Conference Champion and a Fox Valley Conference Co-Champion.


Long-time NIU women's golf head coach Pam Tyska announced her retirement earlier this year after serving post for an incredible 26 years.  As the farewells and congratulatory notes keep surfacing, here's one from Education School Chronicles.  Coach Tyska will be missed!
NIU women's golf Hall of Famer Nicole Jeray is still swinging the sticks at a highly-competitive level at the age of 41, and is shaping up to be a fan-favorite at this weekend's Symetra Tour event in Decatur.  Why is she a fan favorite?  Here's why.
