WINFIELD — Aspen Bryant is in a class by herself.

The Bethany College sophomore golfer from Las Vegas completed a perfect fall season as she won her fourth tournament in as many tries on Tuesday in the South Central Kansas Fall Invitational.

Bryant had to win a playoff to secure the championship in less-than-ideal conditions. She shot rounds of 84-87-171.

Bethany’s Arianna Bryant was third with rounds of 96-80-176. Also for the Swedes, Lexi Pauls shot 110-109-219 and Rachel Meyer chipped in with 114-110-214. Bethany was third as a team.

The Swede men also competed, taking fourth. Josh Meeks led the way with 83-77-160. Other scores were Scott Farrall (85-76-161), Olly Rubenstein (79-83-162), Josef Loughlin (82-81-163), Eric Seutter (84-81-165) and Jacob Hebbel (89-89-178).

“Winfield Country Club is a bit of a tricky course on a calm day, but with wind gusts over 40 mph it is basically a tossup,” Bethany coach Tyler Schiffelbein said. “(Assistant) Coach (Bill) Gies and I talked to our kids all week about not getting too focused on the score because they were going to be high across the board and for the most part I feel like we did a good job of that. It was very exciting to have Aspen win her fourth straight tournament of the semester in a playoff. She continues to pave the way for the women's team. Arianna finished third individually and shot the lowest round of the tournament on Day Two so I feel we are heading into the offseason on a good note."
