Women’s golf takes first place in Dallas, men’s golf struggles


The Kansas State women’s golf team took first place overall out of 13 teams at the Trinity Forest Invitational hosted in Dallas from Oct. 30 to Oct. 31.

Freshman Reid Issac won her first tournament and led the women’s team to victory with a score of one under par.

The rest of the team played very well, with two other Wildcats placing in the top 20.

Senior Connie Jaffrey tied for eighth place with a score of seven over par, while freshman Niamh McSherry tied for 13th place with a score of nine over par.

After the winter offseason, the women’s team will be making their spring debut at the University of Wisconsin’s Westbrook Invitational from Feb. 25 to Feb. 26 in Peoria, Arizona.

The K-State men’s golf team also finished the fall season this past weekend, placing eighth out of 10 teams at the Bridgestone Golf Collegiate in Greensboro, North Carolina, from Oct. 28 to Oct. 29.

Sophomore Ben Fernandez led the team with an individual score of six over par.

The men’s team had a slow start this season, but the Wildcats are ready to improve during the offseason and start their spring campaign with a bang. Their next outing will be the Seminole Intercollegiate from Feb. 24 to Feb. 25 in Tallahassee, Florida.
