The Kent State women’s golf team finished up the Susie Maxwell Berning Classic in Norman, Okla. by placing 13th out of 18 teams on Wednesday.

The Flashes’ final round proved to be the team’s best by offering up a 304 on Wednesday, but late-round mistakes plagued the team as they fell out of the top ten.

Standout freshman Josee Doyon was able to deliver three solid rounds of golf, and she earned a top-15 finish by shooting a 224 for the tournament.

Perhaps most impressive in the final round for the Flashes was senior Jackie Yanch, who shot a one-under 71 for the day and jolted up 28 spots in the rankings to finish in 47th place.

Unfortunately, no other Kent State golfer finished in the top 50.

Sophomore Jennifer Ha shot a three-round 236 to finish in 75th, while fellow sophomore Natalie Goodson finished just one place behind Ha with a 238 for the tournament.

Rounding out the team were junior Erin Hawe and freshman Tess Fraser, who finished 80th and 85th respectively.

Head coach Mike Morrow and company look to improve upon their performance in Oklahoma as the team heads into its last fall tournament at the Betsy Rawls Invitational.

The tournament is Oct. 28-30 at the University of Texas Golf Club in Austin, Texas.
