Wildcats Tied for Eighth After One Round in Dallas

DALLAS, Texas – After a rain delay on Monday morning, the Kansas State women’s golf team is tied for eighth place through one round of the Trinity Forest Invitational at the par-72, 6,246-yard Trinity Forest Golf Club.

The Wildcats shot a 27-over par 315 on the day as the 14-team field dealt with inclement weather in morning, which forced the tournament to be shortened to a 36-hole event. Senior Madison Talley led the way for K-State, carding a 3-over par 75 to enter tomorrow’s final round tied for sixth place.

“The ladies hung in there today,” said head coach Kristi Knight. “Madison [Talley] and Chloe [Weir] had solid scores. I am proud of the effort and attitude. We are looking forward to tomorrow.”

Sophomore Chloe Weir shot a 5-over par 77 in the first round and is tied for 20th, while senior Connie Jaffrey is tied for 46th at 9-over par 81. Katherine Gravel-Coursol is tied for 52nd at 10-over par 82, and Paige Nelson carded a 12-over par 84 to sit in a tie for 67th.

Competing as an individual, freshman Tash Carlsson carded a 4-over par 76 in the first round and is tied for 13th.

Michigan is the current team leader at 16-over par 304. The Wolverines hold a one-stroke lead over Texas A&M, while three teams are tied for third place at 18-over par 306. The Aggies’ Bianca Fabrizio is the individual leader at 1-under par 71, the only play to shoot even or under par during round one.

The final round of the Trinity Forest Invitational will begin Tuesday at 8:30 a.m., with a shotgun start. Live results can be followed at www.golfstat.com and results will be available at www.kstatesports.com at the conclusion of play on Tuesday.
