The St. Olaf women's golf team continued its spring season with a sixth-place finish at the Minnesota Women's Collegiate Golf Association's state championship tournament. The team's top four scores from both Saturday's and Sunday's rounds accumulated to 693, tying the Oles with St. Cloud State University.

Co-captain Emily Segar '09 was the low golfer for St. Olaf, firing a team-best 81 in the opening round before coming back Sunday with an 89. Segar's 170 stroke two-day total landed her tied for 20th place individually among the field of 56 golfers from 10 different schools. Britta Hendrickson '09 improved her opening round 88 by shooting 83 on Sunday at the par 72 Pebble Creek Golf Club in Becker, Minn. Hendrickson's efforts over the weekend placed her 22nd overall.

Co-captain Anna Johnson '08, the lone senior on the women's squad, played solid golf over the weekend, shooting scores of 88 and 87 for a two-day total of 175. Johnson placed 27th in the field. Lizzy Zahn '10 rounded out St. Olaf's top four golfers, playing her way to matching rounds of 91 at the 5,803 yard course. Zahn's 182-stroke weekend total placed her in a tie for 37th place. Kim McClintick '10 also competed for St. Olaf, but withdrew from the tournament after shooting an opening-round 86. Gustavus dominated this year's tournament, shooting a team total of 605, 41 strokes better than the St. Thomas squad that took second place. The Gusties' top four golfers finished in the top five spots overall, including medalist Kali Griggs whose 149 two-day stroke total was just five over par.
