Golfer Jabczenski Finishes Tied for Seventh in Collegiate Debut

WORLEY, Idaho – The women's golf team shot a 311 in the third round and finished 12th in the Circling Raven Collegiate Invitational Tuesday.

"It is not as good as we would have hoped but we played much better than the afternoon round Monday," said Head Coach Brad Bedortha. "The girls know that we can be competitive and play well even with a young team. I feel like we are leaving on a positive note."

The Lumberjacks were led by true freshman Laura Jabczenski, who finished tied for seventh at 228 after posting a three-over par 75 in the final round. She had a one-over par 73 in the first round, followed by an 80 in the second round Monday that was held together with a solid back nine holes.

"She shot 73 in the first round," said Bedortha. "She was very competitive and kept her attitude good. She played in the No. 1 position today and finished the round with four straight pars. She was really big for us. It is a great start to her collegiate career."

Junior Stephanie Kim tied for 33rd after equaling Jabczenski's 75 in the final round. Sophomore Kaitlen Parsons had a second consecutive round of 80, tying for 46th at 237. True freshman Melissa Olson posted an 81 in the third round, while sophomore Jessie Joachim recorded a 90.

"I think we are still a little disappointed that we finished 12th after being the two-time defending champions," said Bedortha. "It was really just one bad round that kept us out of the top five. Moving forward it was just one bad round."

NAU returns to action at the Branch Law Firm/Dick McGuire Invitational in Albuquerque, N.M., Sept. 25-26.
