The Schreiner University (SU) Mountaineer golf teams hosted their annual Schreiner Spring Shootout at Comanche Trace last Monday and Tuesday.
Schreiner University women
The women’s team finished second, just two shots behind tournament winner University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (UMHB). SU posted the low round of the tournament (313) in Tuesday’s final round, after a first-round 329, for a 36-hole total of 642.
The Mountaineers were in third place after Monday’s first round, then got strong scoring from each member of the team Tuesday. Freshman Reygan Rodriguez shot a 77, her career-best, to lead the team, while senior Kaycee Bankert and sophomore Lauren Leslie each carded 78’s, and sophomore Piper Gleadhill added an 80.
Bankert finished fourth individually (158) to earn All-Tournament honors. Leslie and Rodriguez both earned top ten honors with identical 161 scores.
The Schreiner women are playing in the NCAA Division III National Championship Preview at Bay Oaks Golf Club, in Houston, this week.
Schreiner University men
The SU men managed to finish fifth in the nine-team event. The Mountaineers could never get going over the two days. The #2-ranked UMHB Crusaders and #3-ranked UT-Tyler tied for the title, with Trinity University making a big move on Tuesday to claim third place.
Sophomore Jake Bell, playing as an individual, was Schreiner’s top scorer. He shot 73 on Tuesday after an opening round of 74. His 147 earned him his first top ten finish this year.
The SU men will compete next in the inaugural Texas Cup at the end of the month, in Allen, Texas.
