Charteris claims title as Bearcats falter
BRANSON, Mo. – Steph Charteris claimed her fourth tournament victory Tuesday to win the Central Missouri Early Bird Invitational at Pointe Royale Golf Course as the Northwest Missouri State women’s golf team finished second.
Charteris was not only the lone individual to shoot below 80, but also the only golfer on the course to score a 90 or better during Tuesday’s final round with a 77 (166). The sophomore held off Missouri Western’s Natalie Bird and Callie Wilson, who finished six strokes behind Charteris, with a 172 while Wilson finished with a 181.
The pair from Missouri Western helped the Griffons overtake Northwest in the team scoring to claim the team title by one stroke. The Griffons finished 736 while the Bearcats fired a score of 737. Fort Hays State checked in at third with a 778 as Central Missouri finished fourth and Southwest Baptist finished fifth.
Kristina D’Angela earned a top five finish with back-to-back rounds of 93 in the less than ideal conditions Tuesday. D’Angela carded a two-day score of 186 and was followed in the top 10 by Taylor Gard with a 191 (96, 95).
The final scorer for the Bearcats was Ashley Power with a two-day score of 214, while Cassie Lowell withdrew from competition after a first round 88.
Northwest takes a week off before returning to action at the Missouri Western Invitational March 24 and 25 from the St. Joseph Country Club.
