Women’s Golf Ready For MVC Championship


The tournament is set for Sunday through Tuesday

EVANSVILLE, Ind. – Over the last three years, the University of Evansville women’s golf team has performed at its best when it mattered most.  The Purple Aces look for that to continue this weekend when they head to the 2024 Missouri Valley Conference Championship.

Annbriar Golf Course in Waterloo, Ill. is the host for the event.  One round of 18 holes will be played on all three days.

Evansville’s best three finishes in the MVC Championship have come in the last three seasons, highlighted by the Purple Aces taking the top spot in 2021.  UE tied for second in 2023 while earning a 5th place finish in 2022.

Last season, Kate Petrova became the third Aces player to win the individual championship in seven seasons joining Kayla Katterhenry (2017) and Sophia Rohleder (2021).  Petrova finished in a 3-way tie atop the individual standings last season and outdueled her competition in a 2-hole playoff to win the league crown.  She was named the MVC Newcomer of the Year while earning a spot on the All-Tournament Team.

Allison Enchelmayer tied for 14th in last year’s championship while Magdalena Borisova earned a 21st-place tie.  Enchelmayer completed the three rounds with a 238, just seven strokes off Petrova’s winning pace.
