Coors finishes second at UIndy Fall Invitational

CARMEL, Ind. – Saint Leo senior Marie Coors fired a one-under 71 on Tuesday, and led Saint Leo women's golf to a fifth-place finish in the final round of the University of Indianapolis Fall Invitational at the Prairie View Golf Club.

Coors was tied for second on the UIndy Fall Invitational individual leaderboard with Findlay's Shelby Warner with a two-day total of 143 (-1). Coincidentally, Warner and Coors were tied for 20th at last season's NCAA Division II Women's Golf Championships in Denver, Colo., with each posting a four-round score of 299.

Junior Vilde Eriksen fired a five-over 77 in Tuesday's second round, producing a two-day score of 151 (+7). Fellow junior Margine Arguello carded a six-over 78 in the final round, posting a 153 (+9) for the tournament to finish tied for 30th.

Senior Sabrina Rumbaugh shot a seven-over 79 for a two-day total of 156 (+12), while junior Amanda Jakobsson was one stroke behind with a tournament total of 157 (+13) after firing a 79 on Tuesday.

UIndy's Katharina Keilich took medalist honors, after carding rounds of 70 and 71 for a three-under 141 for the tournament. Keilich's win marked the second straight year a UIndy golfer had won the Greyhounds' home event, after Annika Haynes' victory a year ago.

Saint Leo finished the tournament in fifth place out of 17 teams in the event, after posting a team score of 603 (+27) at the par 72, 6215-yard Prairie View course.

Dallas Baptist captured the team title with a 585 (+9), followed by UIndy in second place with a 587 (+11). Tarleton State and Findlay were tied for third place at 595 (+19), right ahead of Saint Leo.

Saint Leo women's golf is idle from competition next weekend. The Lions will return to the links on Saturday-Sunday, Sept. 24-25, when the team travels to Bluffton, S.C., to play in the UNC Pembroke "Battle at Old South" at the Old South Golf Links.

Saint Leo is the two-time defending team champion at the Old South event, which the Lions previously won in 2014 and 2015 when the tournament was hosted by Lander University. Then-sophomore Amanda Jakobsson took medalist honors last year with a seven-under 137 over the 36-hole tournament.
