Women’s Golf Falls Short in Spring Sun

By Maxime Devillaz

On Saturday, April 11, the women’s golf team visited Kutztown University to play its third spring invitational. One of the five members, Shelby Townsend, enjoyed seeing that the sun actually decided to show up for the first time, but said that the wind was unpredictably tricky, nonetheless. That was for those who could play.

“I was out with a shoulder injury so we only had two girls play,” she said, and she wasn’t alone on the side. The Pioneers were forced to play individual rounds as they couldn’t match up with a full team. Only two players made it through the course; junior Hannah Pohalski, who recently marked Pioneer golf history, as young as it may be, shot at 83 for the day, while senior Nokkie Koonvisal totaled 102, according to Townsend.

The hosts, Kutztown University, came out victorious for the sixth straight year on their home ground, only one stroke ahead of the runner- up, according to its athletics website.

Head Coach Tom Kane and the Pioneers will be back in action for their last spring invitational at Easst Stroudsburg, Pa., on April 19-20.
