The Kansas State women’s golf team finished in a disappointing 10th place in the Minnesota Invitational, which was held Monday and Tuesday at the Minikahda Club Golf Course in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The Wildcats finished the 54 holes with a score of 20-over par 308. Head coach Kristi Knight was not pleased with the performance.

“This was not the result we are capable of,” Knight said to K-State Sports. “We will be back to work hard to bounce back in two weeks.”

Sophomore Chloe Weir led the way for the Wildcats, as she carded a 12-over par 228 to tie for 30th place.

Right behind Weir was senior Madison Talley, who finished with a 13-over par 229 for the tournament, good for a tie for 33rd place.

The rest of the Wildcats finished a ways back. Senior Paige Nelson and freshman Hayden Mammen tied for 38th place, and senior Katherine Gravel-Coursol and freshman Tash Carlsson finished in a tie for 46th place.

Kansas State’s next tournament will be Sept. 25-27, in Lincoln, Nebraska, for the Chip-N-Club Invitational.
