In its varsity debut last weekend,
the Michigan Women's Golf Team
placed 12th out of 20 teams at the
Illinois State Invitational.
Coach Tom Simon is excited about
the potential of his young team,
which improved nine strokes over the
two-day competition, combining Fri-
day's 380 total with a 371 score on
"WE WERE in 12th position after
Friday's play and then improved
nine strokes," said Simon. "Although
I thought we'd move up, I was still
encouraged by their play."
Though the second round was
played in a torrential rain, three of
Michigan's p 1 a y e r s managed to
carve out lower numbers on the
soaked golf course.
Senior captain Betsy Richart's
rounds of 89-83 led the Wolverines,
followed by Mary Jane Anderson
with 95-93, Allison Smith at 99-90 and
Amy Conlin with 97-108.
ANDERSON, Smith and Conlin are
all freshwomen, a fact not lost on
"This is our first year and as young
as we are, I'm really optimistic about
the future," he said.
Michigan State topped the field,
followed by Stephens College, Pur-
due and Northern Illinois.
"Michigan State is the team we're
aiming to pass in a few years," added
Simon. "They have been playing for
nine years and are the strongest
northern team we'll see."
