Rockets Place Second at MAC Women's Golf Championship

Posted: Updated:
Toledo posted a second-place finish at the Mid-American Conference Women’s Golf Championship for a second-straight year on Sunday at the par-72, 6,127-yard Hawthorns Golf & Country Club. The Rockets have now posted a Top Three showing each of the last three seasons and in four of the last five years.

Following the tournament, sophomores Sathika Ruenreong and Manisa Isavas were each named to the all-conference squad and Head Coach Nicole Hollingsworth received MAC Coach of the Year accolades. It is the second straight year Ruenreong has received first-team honors, and it is the first time a Rocket coach has been honored as the MAC’s best coach.

“I thought we had a great tournament which capped off a tremendous season for us,” Toledo Head Coach Nicole Hollingsworth said. “We really worked hard and improved a lot over the course of our season, and I'm excited about the bright future that we have in front of us."

Ruenreong (75-80-74) carded UT’s best round today with a two-over par 74 to tie junior Jennifer Elsholz (77-73-79) for the Rockets’ top finish in the individual standings. The duo tied for sixth place at 13-over par 229.

Junior Stephanie St-Jean tied for 11th place at 16-over par 232 (72-77-83), while Isavas tied for 14th place at 17-over par 233 (82-75-76). Senior Kate Hoops tied for 27th place in her final collegiate event with a 54-hole score of 26-over par 242 (78-84-80).

Kent State won the team title for the 16th straight year and is the only school to win the crown in event history. Three Golden Flashes finished atop the leaderboard with MAC Golfer of the Year Jennifer Ha defending her individual title with a six-over par 222 (79-69-74).
