A four-under opening-round of 68 was good enough to propel University of Southern Indiana Women’s Golf sophomore Grace Davis(Valparaiso, Indiana) to her second consecutive title at the USI Screaming Eagles Classic.

Davis, who tied the single-round program and tournament record with her score Sunday, shot an 81 Monday to finish with a two-day score of 149 (+5). Playing in her first collegiate event as a freshman last year, Davis set the 36-hole tournament record at the 2016 Screaming Eagles Classic to capture her first tournament win.

Senior Taylor Howerton (Evansville, Indiana) was second with a six-over 150 (74-76), while freshman Brooke Moser (Leo, Indiana) made her collegiate debut with an eight-over 152 (78-74), good enough for a tie for fourth in the 66-player field.

As a team, the Screaming Eagles shot 308 Sunday and 318 Monday to earn a 14-stroke win over second-place William Jewell College (640) in the 12-team field. Trevecca Nazarene University was third with a 643, while McKendree University (658), Rockhurst University (663) and Missouri S&T (663) rounded out the top five. Trevecca Nazarene and William Jewell shot 312 and 315, respectively, to pace the field in the final round.

In addition to Davis, Howerton and Moser, the All-Tournament also consisted of Maryville University’s Carmen Villaverde (151) and Bellarmine University’s Katie Gathof (152).

USI returns to action Friday and Saturday when it competes at the Ferris State Bulldog Fall Invitational in Big Rapids, Michigan.
