OWASSO, Okla. – Kansas senior Minami Levonowich shot a 1-under 71 to tie for individual honors as the Kansas women’s golf team started the spring season off strong with a 292-299 victory over Tulsa Sunday at the Patriot Golf Course in Owasso, Oklahoma.
The competition came about as both teams had open dates in their spring schedules. Levonowich, whose 71 was her lowest round of the 2014-15 season, tied Tulsa’s Nadia Majidizadeh for top honors in the 15-golfer field.
KU freshman Lizzie Winyarat shot and even-par 72, her low for the year, to finish third and was followed by junior teammate Yupaporn Kawinpakorn at 74 (+2) who placed fourth. Jayhawk sophomore Pornvipa Sakdee was one shot behind Kawinpakorn at 75 (+3) to tie for fifth.
“I’m very pleased with how we played.” Kansas head coach Erin O’Neil said. “The Patriot is a challenging course and it is a great confidence boost to shoot +4 as a team on it, especially in early spring. Minami had a solid round today as did Lizzie. All in all it was a tremendous opportunity for the entire team to get tournament experience.”
All 10 Jayhawks on the women’s golf roster competed in the event. Senior Michelle Woods finished with a 76 (+4), while freshman MacKenzie Sexe carded a 78 (+6). Junior Carly Humes shot an 80 (+8) and freshman Kallie Gonzalez, junior Mackenzie Thayer and senior Gabriella DiMarco ended their rounds with an 82 (+10).
The Jayhawks will next tee off in New Orleans, Louisiana at the AllState Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate, Feb. 22-24.
