San Jose State failed to qualify for the NCAA championships after finishing in tenth place with a score of 56 over par in the Columbus Invitational in Ohio.
The tournament was played on Ohio State University’s Scarlet Course, a challenging par-72 course that is the ninth best college campus golf course in the country according to Golfweek magazine.
Low scores were almost non-existent during the three-round tournament. Out of the 96 players in the tournament field, only 15 managed to shoot a round of 1-under par or better.
Spartan senior My Leander was the only SJSU golfer to shoot a round under par during the tournament, carding a 1-under score of 71 in the final round and finished the tournament with a total score of 8-over par 224.
Leander’s third round score vaulted her 20 spots up the leaderboard into a tie for 13th place with eight other golfers.
Her sophomore teammate Abegail Arevalo finished tied in 43rd place with a cumulative score of 15-over par (231).
Fellow Spartan sophomores Franziska Friedrich and Alexandra Cooper finished tied in 48th and 61st place respectively with scores of 16-over par (232) and 20-over (236).
Senior Elizabeth Schultz finished her collegiate golfing career, as well as Leander, with a score of 24-over (240).
