Su Hole-in-One Leads Team School Record at IWU


NORMAL, Ill. -- The Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology women's golf team set a school record with a two-day score of 645, highlighted by just the second hole-in-one in school history, at the Illinois Wesleyan University Invitational on Saturday and Sunday.

Freshman Rebecca Su recorded the second hole-in-one in Rose-Hulman history on Sunday, successfully navigating the 155-yard 13th hole with a six-iron.  Su fired back-to-back rounds of 78, marking the second-best individual 36-hole tournament score in school history.

In addition, Su became just the second player in Rose-Hulman history to record back-to-back rounds in the 70s in the same tournament.  Stephanie Harrington accomplished the feat at Anderson University in 2008.  The first hole-in-one was recorded by DeAnne De Keizer at Sunrise Golf Course in 2012.

Junior Ashton Foushee finished second among Engineers with rounds of 80 on Saturday and 78 on Sunday.  Freshman Namuunaa Nadmid came home third among Rose-Hulman players with two identical scores of 82.  

Senior Taylor King finished fourth among Rose-Hulman players with performances of 84 on Saturday and 83 on Sunday.  

The effort also included rounds of 88 and 86 by Mia Ponsot along with scores of 96 and 89 by Emily Smith.

The team finished sixth overall in an event that featured several nationally ranked teams, including winner Washington University (Mo.).
