After three days of play, the Iowa women’s golf team wrapped up the Big Ten Championships in 10th place out of 14 teams, finishing behind Illinois by 3 strokes. 

The team tallied a final score of 901, scoring 305 on the first day followed by 303 and 302 on the second and third days.

Sophomore Jessie Sindlinger shot the lowest total score for Iowa, totaling 226 and finishing tied for 32nd. 

Senior Shelby Phillips shot the second lowest score for Iowa, 227, placing her tied for 36th. 

Northwestern won the tournament with a score of 863, and Wildcat Sara Cho came in first at 213.   

“We certainly did not compete the way we were hoping coming into the tournament,” Menzel said in a release. “But we are a young team, and I believe we can take many good things away from this weekend.”

Although the Hawkeyes didn’t achieve the type of redemption that they wanted see from their prior tournament at Ohio State, the future looks bright with four out of the six players who went to Big Tens, one sophomore and three freshmen.
