As she has at each fall event, sophomore Tori Van Wyen led the charge for Oglethorpe with a total of 171 to come home in 26th place. Freshman Jordan Krahn turned in two steady rounds to finish with a total of 175 in a tie for 34th while sophomore Chelsea Gatterdam was one stroke back of Krahn in 37th. Freshman Erin McPhee carded a 189 to finish in a tie for 44th while Edda Bjarndottir came home in 51st.
The young Petrels squad enjoyed a solid fall season that included a 7th (Eat a Peach), an 8th (Rhodes Classic), a 10th (Chick-fil-A) and a 12th place (BSC Shootout) result. Oglethorpe is back in action this spring.
