NIU women’s golf opened the spring season finishing in fourth place Wednesday at the Bowling Green State University Women’s Intercollegiate. Senior Jasmine Ly paved the way for the Huskies, finishing tied for sixth place. 

The Huskies also had two other golfers log top-15 finishes. Senior Emily Romancew finished tied for 10th place and graduate student Sydney Naro finished tied for 14th place.

Ly finished with a score of 223, 10-over par. Ly finished tied with Grand Canyon University sophomore Ryan Flynn and University of Idaho freshman Emma Kang.

Naro finished third out of the NIU golfers. Naro left the first round with 74 strokes – her lowest of the tournament – and parlayed it with 75 strokes in the second round. A score of 79 in the third round sabotaged Naro, forcing her to plummet seven spots in the leaderboard.
