Lumberjack Golf Finishes Competition at Oral Roberts Shootout

TULSA, Okla. – Northern Arizona University's golf team wrapped up play at the Oral Roberts Shootout today. The Lumberjacks finished 15th as a team in their second tournament of the season.

We definitely need a good week of practice," said head coach Brad Bedortha. "It's tough having had only one day of practice last week."

The Lumberjacks were led by senior Kaitlen Parsons whose scores of 76-78-78 left her tied for 25th individually. Junior Brittany McKee started off on fire through round one but struggled in rounds two and three. McKee posted rounds of 74-83-79.

"Brittany played a very good first round," said Bedortha. "She played steady and within herself."

NAU Golf also received contributions from Melissa Olson (T 73rd), Savana Bezdicek (T 75th) and Laura Jabczenski (T 77th). The Lumberjacks will compete next at the Cowgirl Desert Intercollegiate in a two-day tournament in Palm Desert, Calif. beginning on October 12th.
