Warhawk women’s golf battled inclement weather and delays to come away with a fourth place finish this past Tuesday at the Red Wolves Classic in Jonesboro, Arkansas. 

After eight holes of golf were completed, Monday play was suspended and the tournament was set to resume the next day. 

The Warhawks sat in fifth place after the delay.

The tournament began again Tuesday and the Warhawks rallied during the last 24 holes to record a final overall team score of 628. 

The tournament had to be shortened to 36 holes due to the suspension of play on Monday.

Holte said that coming up short can be helpful.

“We learn more from getting beat than winning and one area of improvement to be made is in the short game. Overall the experience was huge,” she said.

Several Warhawks finished in the top 25 of the individual standings including sophmore Lesley Atkins who saw her best overall score since joining the ULM team.

She shot a 77 and 78 respectively to finish with an overall score of 155 and fourteenth in the individual standings.

Atkins seemed happy with the result.

“I’ve been working a lot on my mental game and the mental aspects of play and I’ve felt better every tournament. I’m really happy with how well our team played,” she said. 

Senior Ines Fendt also registered another strong score finishing in a 4-way tie for 7th place. This marks the 3rd consecutive time she has finished in the top ten in the standings. 

The Lady Warhawks will travel to Gulf Shores, Alabama, to compete in the UAB Fall Beach Blast on October 27-28.
