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.

OPSU women's golf coach Roger McKinnon said that this was the best the team has played all year. Ashley Ogle, Checutah Beck and Samantha McCay each improved their scores in this tournament turning in personal bests for at least one round.

As a team the Aggies marked 364 and 388, good enough for second place. Southwestern College took first place scoring 343 and 341; and Kamie Rash of Kansas Wesleyan finished first individually shooting 13 over par (77 and 80).

The Aggies will wrap up their season next week with a tournament in Winfield, Kan. hosted by Southwestern College April 14-15.
