Women’s Golf
Freshman Wilma Zanderau led the University of Missouri–St. Louis women’s golf team to a 15th-place finish in the NCAA Division II Championship, which UMSL hosted last week at Fox Run Golf Club in Eureka, Missouri. Zanderau finished in a tie for fourth individually with a 54-hole score of 215, including a second-round 67, to earn All-American honors from the NCAA. Sophomore Tove Brunell tied for 21st in the tournament but received first-team All-American recognition from the Women’s Golf Coaches Association in the post-tournament awards ceremony for her success leading the 25th-ranked Tritons throughout the season. Linn Thornqvist, Victoria Klausner and Juliette Lecomte finished 90th, tied for 94th and 97th, respectively, for UMSL in the program’s fifth appearance in the NCAA Championship after previous trips in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2022. Nova Southeastern’s Olivia Gronborg was crowned the NCAA individual champion after finishing stroke-play with a total of 6-under-par 210 to win by four shots. She also led Nova Southeastern to the final during the match play portion of the tournament, but it fell 3-2 against Dallas Baptist University, which claimed its second NCAA title. DBU finished stroke play as the top team with a total of 10-over-par 874. The Patriots beat Cal State East Bay 2-1-2 in the quarterfinals and Lynn 4-1 in the semifinals to set up Saturday’s matchup with Nova Southeastern.
