Busker continues to pace Wildcat women

SYDNEY BUSKER

Sydney Busker of Detroit Lakes and St. Catherine University junior continued to lead the Wildcats’ women’s golf team this spring at the Sewanee Spring Invitational in Dickson, Tennessee Sunday and Monday.

The Wildcats took on some of the top golf teams in the nation and placed 10th as a team behind a two-day score of 664 (+80).

St. Kate's dropped four strokes from its day one to day two score thanks, in large part, to top golfer Kaitlyn Alvarez (Eau Claire, Wis. / North) and Busker, the No. 2 golfer in the lineup.

After shooting an opening round 83 on Sunday, Alvarez dropped six strokes and shot a 77, shooting up the leaderboard from 25th to 12th place as an individual.

Right there with her was Busker, who was the team's most consistent golfer over the weekend. The junior shot a 79 Monday morning, bringing her two-day score to a grand total of 160. That score put Busker in a three-way tie with Alvarez and a golfer from Methodist University for 12th place at +14.

Taylor Krouse (New Prague, Minn. / New Prague) also played well for the Wildcats over the weekend. The senior finished in a tie for 37th as the team's No. 3 golfer after shooting 85 on the second day of competition to finish with a two-day score of 168 (+22).

First year Jordan Amelon (Iowa City, Iowa / West) finished at +30 thanks to shooting a score of 87 in the opening round and 89 in the second, combined for a two-day score of 176. Ahna Boe (Stewartville, Minn. / Stewartville) shot a 198 over the weekend, ending the weekend at +52.

After combining the scores of the top-4 golfers, St. Kate's finished in tenth place with a two-day score of 664. If the weather holds, the Wildcats will compete in Normal, Illinois April 14-15 at the Illinois Wesleyan Spring Fling.
