Soderling's career day propels women's golf to fifth place finish

TERRE HAUTE, Ind.—Freshman Jenna Soderling shot a career-low 79 en route to a seventh place finish at the Rose-Hulman Invitational on Sunday, helping the Pioneers finish in fifth place as a team. The second round was played at the Rea Parks Golf Course, a par-72 course that opened in 1920.

Soderling's round was the highlight of the tournament for Transylvania, as they shot a 364 as a team on the day, shaving 21 shots off their Saturday total.

Nearly every member of the team improved from their previous round. Kim Kasama fired off a 93 for a two-round total of 191, while Lindsay Bloom and Jill Graeter each had rounds of 96 on Sunday. Keeley Goff added a 99 on the day to finish off the Pioneers' efforts. Collectively, the team posted a 749 for the two-day event.

The tournament was Transy's final tune-up before the conference tournament, which will take place October 10 at the Aston Oaks Golf Club in North Bend, Ohio.
