Hutchinson, Kan.—In a field of eight teams and 39 golfers, the OPSU women's golf team was at the top of the leaderboard in this week's Sterling Invitational played April 7-8 at the par 72, 5,850-yard Carey Park Golf Course in Hutchinson, Kan.

Leading the Aggie team once again was Abigail Ferguson who shot an 83 in round one, a personal best, and an 86 in round two; Ferguson tied for fourth individually. Taylor Coffman also performed well for the Aggies shooting 87 and 92 and taking twelfth overall.
