Heal Wins Freshmen of the Year, Eagles Finish 3rd

Ashland, NE – The Oklahoma Wesleyan University Lady Eagles golf team completed its inaugural season with a 3rd place finish in the MCAC Conference Tournament hosted at Quarry Oaks in Ashland, NE.

The Lady Eagles fired a season best 383 in route to a 3rd place finish. Lindsay Heal (Fr., Denton, TX) led the Lady Eagles with an 85. Heal’s round was good enough to land her in a tie for 8th place.

Alyssa Cardwell (Fr., Mustang, OK) shot an opening round 87. Her round was good enough for 10th place. Other Lady Eagles scores included Halie Hanson (Fr., Shawnee, KS) with a 103, Ava Yeabower (Fr., Bartlesville, OK) with a 108, and Hannah Womack (Fr., Roanoke, TX) with a 113.

“Our girls battled today,” Head Coach T.J. Dickinson said. “It’s a tough course for the women, and our players really fought.

“I can’t wait to see how we play tomorrow.”

Unfortunately, the second round was cancelled due to rain and high winds. The Lady Eagles finished in 3rd place in their first MCAC Conference Tournament.

Lindsay Heal earned Freshman of the Year honors for her play. She was also named 2nd Team All-MCAC. Alyssa Cardwell also earned 2nd Team All-MCAC honors.

“In our programs first year, we had the freshmen of the year and two all-conference players, “Dickinson said.

“I am excited to see our women improve over the summer, and it will be fun to see where we stack up next year.”
