Lumberjack Golf Facing Some Adversity in Rio Verde
RIO VERDE, Ariz. - Northern Arizona University's women's golf team completed day two of competition at the Rio Verde Invitational. The Lumberjacks sit in seventh place posting rounds of 304 and 314 thus far.
NAU has been led by some strong play from the likes of Jacquie LeMarr (75-73) and Kaitlen Parsons (72-77). LeMarr was top performer the team on day two of play shooting a round of 73. The sophomore is currently in a six-way tie for first place. Parsons round of 77 leaves her in a three-way tie for seventh place.
"Jacquie and Kaitlen have been playing consistently well," said head coach Brad Bedortha. "It's been fun to watch them compete toward the top of the rankings."
The rest of the Lumberjacks did not fare as well on day two of play as the team had to endure some rough winds on the green. Susana Mejia (81-80), Savana Bezdicek (78-84) and Brittany McKee (83-82) also competed for NAU on day two of play. The trio will be looking to improve their play on the final day of competition in order to give some support to the likes of LeMarr and Parsons.
"We had some bad choices made and just didn't play well," Bedortha said. "Seeing the scores we are making is frustrating because we are better than this. Hopefully we have a better vibe tomorrow and start playing better as a whole."
