JEROMESVILLE, Ohio - Denison women's golf improved by eight strokes on Sunday to secure their second team championship of the season at the 2019 Wooster Spring Invitational held at the Mohican Hills Golf Club in Jeromesville, Ohio. Totalling a two-day score of 648 on the Par 72 course, the Big Red finished 15 strokes ahead of second place Otterbein University who finished with a team score of 663. This also ranks as the second-lowest team score of the 2018-19 season for the DU after they tallied a new program record 634 at Wittenberg's Pat Clouse Invitational on Oct. 7, 2018.
Winning two of the last four tournaments that Denison has competed in, junior Emmy Timberlake led the Big Red on Sunday with a two-over-par 74 to lead the 95-player field and to secure the individual championship for the second-straight season. Winning last year's weather-shortened Wooster Spring Invite after the first day, Timberlake posted a two-round score of 152 (+8) to finish four strokes better than Wooster's Tongtong Wu in second place (156).
Megan Wong and Megan Munn finished in a tie for third place after firing matching scores of 159 over 36 holes of competition. Junior Lauren Danielson rounded out the team scoring for Denison in a tie for 37th place after posting a 179 for the weekend.
Nicole Wetoska also competed for Denison and recorded a two-round score of 185.
The Big Red will return to action in two weeks on Sunday, April 28 when they return to the College of Wooster to take part in a dual match play with the Fighting Scots at the Wooster Country Club.
