The 445 total is the lowest round for the Cardinals this fall by 10 strokes.
The Cardinals were led by Alex Homann once again as she posted a 93 after shooting a 92 in round one.

She has a great sense of playing the game is not afraid to be aggressive and I like that in a player."
Coach Squires would like to congratulate other WHAC teams for their two day performances. "It is great to see such low scores posted by the teams in this conference. It builds reputation for our schools and encourages as well as sheds positive light on the game for young women in the future.
Lastly, a special thank you to Stonebridge and their team of Doug Mervis and Tim Strickland for hosting and hard work put forth to put on a great event.

DAY 1 RECAP

Stonebridge is the home course for the CUAA Men's and Women's Golf teams. Head Men's Golf Coach, Tim Strickland is also the Head Golf Pro at Stonebridge.

UNOH's Rebekah Rader led the individual scoring with a 77 (+5).
Concordia was led by Freshman Alex Homann (FR/South Bend, IN) who paced the Cardinals with a 92 (+20) which tied her for 31st. This is a seven stroke improvement for Homann from the first WHAC Jamboree where she shot scores of 99 and 102. Despite tough course conditions Homann will look to continue the improve heading into Day 2.
Stonebridge will also play host to Day 2 of the WHAC Jamboree on Wednesday, September 21st with a shotgun start set for 9am. The official final results for the two day Jamboree will be posted later today.
