Wildcats Return to Action in Washington

MANHATTAN, Kan. – Coming off a third-place finish earlier this week, the Kansas State women's golf team will get right back on the course as the Wildcats travel to Sammamish, Washington, to compete in the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational, Tuesday and Wednesday, at Sahalee Country Club. The tournament will consist of 36 holes on with a shotgun start at 9:45 a.m. (CT) on Monday, followed by 18 holes on Tuesday.

“We are looking forward to this event,” K-State head coach Kristi Knight said. “Sahalee is one of the great courses in the Northwest. We saw a lot of good golf out of the team earlier this week in Missouri and we look to keep it going.”

Five members of the K-State squad will be competing in the event with Madison Talley, Connie Jaffrey, Paige Nelson, Katherine Gravel-Coursol and Scotland Preston making up the scoring lineup. Talley leads the squad with a 71.25 stroke average and has finished in the top 20 in all three events, including two top-five finishes. 

Earlier this week at the Johnie Imes Invitational, K-State was led by Jaffrey and Gravel-Coursol as they tied for 10th place after carding a 2-under par 214. The team was as low as 11th place during the event but bounced back over the final two rounds to finish at even to par 864 for its second top-five finish of the year.

Kansas State will be joined in the Edean Ihlanfeldt by 12 other teams, which includes Cal, Colorado, Colorado State, Gonzaga, Hawaii, Oregon State, Pepperdine, San Diego State, San Francisco, Seattle, TCU and Washington.
