YORK, Neb. – Midland University’s women’s golf season came to a close on Saturday afternoon at the Great Plains Athletic Conference Qualifier held a York Country Club in York, Nebraska. The Lady Warriors dropped two spots overs the finals 36 holes, finishing 10th as a team.
Morningside won the event in a landslide, outshooting second-place Jamestown by 79 shots. The Mustangs had four top-ten individuals, including the individual champion.
Individually for the Warriors, Jessica Rehtus had the best performance over the 72-hole event. She finished the first half in the fall in a tie for 10th place but dropped to a tie for 18th after back-to-back rounds in the 90s.
Next in line for Midland was Tiffany Scheele who placed 28th, Mateya Peters who placed 43rd, Sophie Hart who placed 44th. The fifth spot in the Warriors’ lineup was split between Paige Mestl, who competed in three rounds, and Renee Marcotte, who played the other.
With the completion of the season comes the retirement of head women’s golf coach Warren Kuhl. Coach Kuhl led the Lady Warriors for nine seasons after coming to Midland in 2010. In just his second season he led the team to the NAIA National Championship in 2011, placing 25th overall.
“We’re grateful for the dedication Coach Kuhl has provided to our student-athletes, and wish him well in his retirement,” said Dave Gillespie, Midland University Athletics Director.
