In its spring debut, the Kansas State women’s golf team fell short of its putts and chips on Monday, Feb. 28, during the Westbrook Invitational, finishing in 13th place.

After day one of the invitational, the Wildcats were at 11-over par 299. At the conclusion of the invitational, they fell to 22-over par 886.

“It came down to chipping and putting,” head coach Kristi Knight told K-State Athletics. “It looked like we were hit or miss with chipping around the green, and we did not hole many putts. Our speed was pretty good on the greens, but we just didn’t make anything. Therefore, we were not in the mix.”

The Wildcats were led by sophomore Napua Glossner. Glossner tied for 23rd place, shooting 2-over par 218.

Along with Glossner, junior Haley Vargas placed 46th with a 6-over par 222 performance after making her way up six spots in the final round.

In a three-way tie for 61st place were senior Heather Fortushniak, freshman Remington Isaac and sophomore Gabriela McNelly, shooting at 9-over par 225.

The Wildcats are back in action March 11-13 in Mesa, Arizona, for the Clover Cup.
