Northwest sits fifth after day one
KANSAS CITY, Mo.-Northwest Missouri State senior Jessica Feuerbach fired a 10-over-par 85 Monday and stands in a tie for 10th place after day one of the MIAA Championship Meet hosted by Tiffany Green Golf Course. The 36-hole team and individual championships conclude Tuesday.
Two-time defending champion Nebraska-Omaha turned in the top three scorecards and leads the team championship by 25 strokes over second-place Missouri Western. Danielle Suponchick and Amy Powell are tied at the top at 4-over-par. Fellow Maverick Armana Christianson is third at 8-over-par.
Northwest freshman Cassie Lowell, who shot a 3-over-par 75 to win the William Jewell Invitational less than a week ago, shot a 25-over-par 97 Monday. It was her worst collegiate round by nine strokes. Lowell has placed outside the top four once in 11 collegiate tournaments.
Bearcat senior Erin Luchtel is tied for 14th place at 15-over-par. Freshman Kristina D'Angela is 21st at 19-over-par.
Behind Nebraska-Omaha (313) and Missouri Western (338) in the team race are Truman (346), Fort Hays State (349) and Northwest (360). Lincoln, in its MIAA debut, is sixth with 365 strokes.
