Earlier this week, the ladies enjoyed a strong performance at the Nevel Meade Collegiate in Prospect, Ky.  Led by reigning Missouri Valley Conference Women’s Golfer of the Week Mallory Russell, the Purple Aces came home in second place.  Russell posted a 146 over the two rounds on her way to a runner-up spot on the individual side.

Allison Enchelmayer tied for fifth place with a score of 149 while Kate Petrova was two behind her with a 151 to take 8th place.

Two weeks ago, the men were in action at the Bobby Nichols Intercollegiate in Sevierville, Tenn.  Carson Parker was the top finisher for UE, carding a 5-over 77 in the final round of the tournament to take 24th place with a 223.

Following him was the duo of Daniil Romashkin and Issac Rohleder.  Both completed play with a 224 to tie for 26th.
