The Baldwin Wallace University women’s golf team opened up their season last weekend at Mallard Creek, their home course. Mount Union took first place at the Yellow Jacket Invitational finishing with 686 strokes on par-72, while BW finished 4th with 727 strokes.
Freshmen Kelly Linnabary led the Jackets, finishing in 6th place. She had rounds of 83 and 92 for a collegiate debut total of 175.
This past weekend, the Mount Union Invitational was canceled because of the recent inclement weather.
Head Coach John Kapusta shared that in his six years of tenure at BW, this is the largest team he has coached. The Yellow Jackets women’s golf team is composed of twelve members–two seniors, three juniors, three sophomores, and four first-year students. He also said, “As a team, we pride ourselves on doing the best we can on the course. But the real meaning of our team continues off the course, where our ladies truly exhibit the spirit of YJ4L. A player can find the best support among her fellow team members.”
