Round One Results
MUNCIE, Ind. - The Northern Illinois women's golf team completed the first day of Ball State's Cardinal Classic on Saturday afternoon with a score of 312 in 18 holes at The Players Club. The Huskies rest in an eighth-place tie with Dayton after the first round, sitting 24 strokes behind leader Ball State.
Freshman Allie Parthie (Marinetta, Wis./Marinetta) started her Huskie career on the right track with a team-low round of 73, which puts her in a tie for sixth overall as she is just two shots behind leader Darby Peters from Eastern Michigan. Sophomore Kelsie Passolt (Hayward, Wis./Hayward) finished the day in a tie for 18th after a career-low score of 76. Junior Jessica Parmenter (Peoria, Ill./Peoria Christian) ended with a score of 81, leaving her in a tie for 50th. Senior Kim Hunley (Aurora, Ill./West) stands in a tie for 58th after her first round score of 82 and senior Mandi Vavrinchik (Elmhurst, Ill./York) finished in a tie for 62nd after posting a score of 83.
"It's certainly nice to have Mandi and Jessica back after recovering from injuries last year," said NIU head coach Pam Tyska. "I'm also very glad to welcome Allie to the NIU golf squad, leading us with a 73 today. It was also nice to see Kelsie back in the zone using her golf talent well.
"Everyone has a few shots that they would like to hit again, but we are anxious to get back out there tomorrow and make some corrections."
The Huskies will end the 16-team Cardinal Classic tomorrow after 18 more holes of competition with a 9 a.m. CT shotgun start.
