Oct. 12, 2012
MANHATTAN, Kan. – The Kansas State women’s golf team looks to continue its successful fall slate as the Wildcats travel to Norman, Okla., to compete in the Susie Maxwell Berning Classic, Oct., 15-17, at the par 72, 6,327-yard Jimmie Austin Golf Club.
“The team is ready to hit the road,” head coach Kristi Knight said. “We are rested and have been preparing for the course at OU. This is a great field. We are playing with confidence, and belief and patience will benefit us in this tournament.”
The Wildcats will be joined in the field by the University of Denver, Coastal Carolina, Kansas, Kennesaw State, Kent State, Middle Tennessee State, New Mexico, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Redlands Community College, South Florida, SMU, TCU, Texas State, Texas Tech and Tulsa.
This marks the second consecutive year K-State has competed in the Susie Maxwell Berning Classic, as the Wildcats finished in ninth last year with a 54-hole score of 49-over par 913.
Pyle, who leads the team with a 75.00 stroke average, is coming off a career best tournament at the Johnie Imes Invitational, shooting a 54-hole score of 2-under par 214 to capture a second-place finish. It was the highest placing by a Wildcat since Misenhelter’s second-place finish at the Marilynn Smith/Sunflower Invitational in 2011.
Misenhelter carded a 54-hole score of 8-over par 224 at the Johnie Imes Invitational to finish in 20th, earning the third consecutive top-20 finish of her junior season. Her three top-20 finishes are tied with Pyle for the team lead.
Eliasson finished in a tie for 18th two weeks ago, notching a 54-hole score of 7-over par 223. The sophomore turned in a final round score of 1-under par 71 to earn the first under-par round of her career.
