NIU women’s golf: Huskies close regular season in Missouri

By Patrick Smith

Women’s golf will play its last regular season golf tournament this week as it prepares for the MAC Championships.

The Huskies will partake in the Gary Crossley Ford Kansas City Shootout in Kansas City, Mo. They tee off at 8 a.m. Monday and Tuesday.

The five golfers for NIU in the two-day tournament will be junior Samantha Coyne, junior Connie Ellett, sophomore Lena Gautier, junior Sydney Brickey and freshman Hayley Mortensen.

“We need all five players to play well,” said head coach Kim Kester. “Getting all five girls playing well together at the same time is something we haven’t been good at this year.”

This tournament will be the Huskies’ last chance to prepare for the MAC Championships, which will be played April 24-26 in Cincinnati, Ohio.
