Women’s golf looks for another title

The Kent State women’s golf team is looking to grab its eighth-straight Mid-American Conference Championship crown this weekend in Indian Springs, Ohio.

The Flashes have held the title since 1999 and want to receive an automatic bid to the NCAA Championship.

“We’re looking to have our golf games peak this weekend,” Kent State coach Mike Morrow said in an online press release. “Each year we have three goals: to win the MAC, play in the regional and have our best finish at the NCAAs.”

The tournament includes 72 holes, with 36 on Friday and 18 on Saturday and Sunday.

Included in this year’s tournament are Ball State, Bowling Green, Eastern Michigan, Northern Illinois, Ohio, Toledo and Western Michigan.

For the fifth-straight tournament this season, the Flashes will use the same starting lineup of Tara Delaney, Kira Meixner, Becky Wood, Kirby Dreher and Karen Delaney.

Kent State is ranked No. 25 in the NGCA Coaches Poll and No. 20 in the Golfweek/Sagarin performance index, while sophomore Delaney ranks No. 43 in the Sagarin index.
