SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Harding University freshman Whitney Ohlhausen had the best tournament ever by a Lady Bison and led Harding to a tie for seventh place in the 17-team Drury Fall Shootout held Monday and Tuesday.
Ohlhausen, a native of Dallas, Texas, set two new Harding records in finishing fifth among 97 golfers. Her second-round 75 was the lowest single round ever recorded by a Lady Bison, breaking the record of 76 set by Brandi Watkins last season. Ohlhausen's tournament score of 152 also broke Watkins' school record of 155 set at the 2008 Bison Fall Golf Classic.
As a team, Harding shot 326 in round one and 331 in round two for a 657 total, the second-lowest score ever recorded by a Lady Bison team.
Southern Indiana won the team competition with a score of 611. The individual medalist was Danielle Suponchick of Nebraska-Omaha, who finished six strokes ahead of Ohlhausen at 146.
Harding easily finished ahead of the two other Gulf South Conference schools in the event. Henderson State placed 13th at 689 and Arkansas Tech was 15th at 715.
Harding freshman So-Yun Kim tied for 28th at 164. Other Lady Bisons included Ragan Muncy (43rd, 168), Tara Fuchs (t56, 173) and Evelyn Poteet (79th, 182).
Harding is back in action Monday and Tuesday as it hosts the 2009 Bison Fall Golf Classic at Stone Links Country Club in North Little Rock, Ark.
