The University of Nebraska at Omaha women’s golf team came up with some redemption after their first tournament by finishing in fourth place at the North Dakota Fall Classic on Tuesday, Sept. 17.
The Mavs were looking to bounce back after a ninth place finish in their first tournament and did just that in North Dakota. As a team, the Mavs shot 991 through 54 holes and were just one stroke behind third place South Dakota. The host, North Dakota, shot a 971 to finish as the tournament runner-up. North Dakota State shot 934 to win the event.
The Mavs were led by junior Sophie Peters and freshman Sarah Pravecek, who each shot 79 in the final round to help the Mavs solidify their fourth place finish.
Peters shone for the Mavericks, leading with a team best score of 243, good for seventh overall. Pravecek wasn’t far behind, tying for ninth with a total of 246. Sophomore Katie Kesti shot an 80 during round three and finished with a score of 249, which had her tied for 14th overall.
Sophomore Gentry Carveth shot 85 on Tuesday and 254 for the tournament, placing her in a tie for 18th overall. Makenna Koreker finished 27th overall after shooting 261. Kat Slump, playing as an individual, shot 95 in the final round to finish at 284, which did not contribute to Omaha’s overall team score.
The Mavs return to action Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 23-24 at the SIUE Intercollegiate Double Tree Invitational in Edwardsville, Ill.
The University of Nebraska at Omaha men’s golf team, with a strong performance by sophomore Mitch Ryan, finished third at the Erv Kaiser Invitational at North Dakota State.
Ryan tied his career best round and finished with a score of 223, which was good for fifth-place overall. Ryan shot an even-par round of 72 on Tuesday making it back-to-back weeks in which he has led or tied for the lead for the Mavs.
Just behind Ryan in scoring was senior, Alex Overfelt, who finished tied for 13th overall after shooting 229 for the tournament.
A pair of juniors, Alex Holtan and Karl Krieser, pitched in with identical scores of 73 in the third round. Holtan finished tied for 18th with and overall score of 232, while Krieser was just one stroke back with a 233 and a tie for 21st place.
In fifth place for the Mavs, shooting 235 for the tournament was junior, Taylor Sidzyik. Taylor’s efforts earned him a 26th place finish.
The Maverick’s best score of the tournaments was turned in by freshman, Lucas Gervais, who shot a 221 overall including an two-under 70 in round three. Unfortunately, Gervais was playing as an individual, thus his score did not count towards the Mavs total.
The Maverick’s third place finish was a sign of improvement from last week at the Derek Dolenc Invitational, where they finished sixth.
The Mavs get a week off before returning to the links for the Jim Colbert Intercollegiate at Kansas State on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1.
