(SILVIS, Ill.) – On Tuesday-Wednesday, the No. 10 Truett McConnell University women’s golf team traveled to compete in the NAIA National Championships for their fourth consecutive appearance, where the Lady Bears worked hard through the first two rounds of play, ultimately unable to make the second round cut and concluded their season tied in 22nd overall with a team score of 661.

Audrey Grace Holder led the way for TMU after shooting an 85 in round one and a 76 in round two. Madison Panter followed shooting an 81 through both rounds, while Jala Stamey and Nicoline Eide individually shot an 84 and 85. Rounding out TMU’s results was Sylken November who shot a pair of 87s through both rounds.

“We had a tough time this week at the National Championship. It will be my job as the coach to correct what happened and fix it before our next season,” said Head Coach Steve Patton. “We are very proud of our senior Madison Panter who has lead our team to many great victories and helped us make it to 4 National Championships consecutively. While we will miss her we have a lot of fire power returning from a deep and experienced roster. We are also adding several talented freshman next year. We have discovered an emerging leader on the golf course in Audrey Grace Holder. She has proven that she has the ability to lead our team in the most prestigious tournaments when it matters the most. I am very proud of the way the girls carried themselves at the national championship with grace and poise even though the results were not what we wanted. I look forward to compiling a list of all the records that were broken by our women this year!”
