MARION, Iowa — Bethany College women’s golf star Aspen Bryant opened her fall season with another victory this past weekend and she helped the Swedes to tie for the team title in the Klocke Family Classic, losing in a tiebreaker.
Bryant shot rounds of 79-76 for the individual title.
Helping her were Marisa Loya (91-84-175), Savannah Pinson (91-84-175), Ger’Kayla Tunley (94-92-186) and Joie Francis Ramirez (98-95-193).
“I am very proud of the attitude, effort and the result in Iowa this past weekend for the ladies,” BC coach Dalton Stevens said. “For us to throw four new freshmen in their first college tournament and tie for first is a very big accomplishment for our program moving forward. The ladies also broke the team 18 hole low round record with a score of 336. The team chemistry and their willingness to be coachable has really got the year off to a great start."
The Bethany men’s No. 1 entry was fifth and the second team was 15th. Here are the scores:
T10. Scott Farrall – 73-76-149
T16. Nathan Limbacher – 75-76-151
T24. Jordan Della Guistina – 75-79-154
T24. Josh Meeks – 76-78-154
T34. Juan Pablo Sin – 81-75 -156
T34. Simon Bourel – 80-76-156
T62. Birgir Magnusson – 88-77 -165
T69. James Fisher – 82-85 -167
T69. Jorge Monagas – 82-85-67
T78. Stefan Sigmundsson – 88-86-174
“The men showed spurts of great golf, but a couple of holes really kept us out of being in contention to win the tournament," Stevens said. "We will look to rebound in Springfield, Mo. at Evangel's tournament this next week. It was great to get back into action for a lot of our guys and look to build off of this going forward with our fall season."
