Black and Gold gain runner-up finish at home tourney

WABASH, IND. – Fueled by a pair of players winding up in the individual top 10, Manchester University traversed a cool, wet and windy Honeywell Golf Course to a 372 team score Saturday, Sept. 19.

Sophomore Kaitlin Powers (Indianapolis, Ind.) was the host squad's low placer, taking sixth with a round of 88 which was only seven strokes separated from first in a tightly-packed top six. Freshman Emily Milburn (Lebanon, Ind.) was just two places removed from her teammate, carding a 92 to tie for eighth.

In-state NCAA Division III non-conference rival Trine University put five players in the top 10 in route to the team championship at the 2015 MU Fall Invitational. The Thunder's 339 score bested the field by 33 strokes.

MU continues its 2015 fall slate Friday, Sept. 25, traveling to Cleary University of Howell, Mich., for a tournament with the Spartans' men's squad.

NOTE: The Black and Gold's finish at their home tourney was the program's best since they won it in 2010.
