Biola women’s golf headed to compete in the RJGA Palm Valley Classic on April 2-3 at Palm Valley Golf Club in Goodyear, Ariz. The Eagles competed as a team against 20 other schools and individually among over 100 golfers where they took home a tie for 11th place overall.

On Friday the Eagles were soaring and landed in seventh place at the end of day, with one and two golfers in Top 20 positions. Junior Sami Penor tied for eighth place with three other individuals, scoring a 73. In 12th place came freshman Mary Grace Davidson who also tied with a couple individuals, finishing with a score of 74. Biola finished with a combined score of 304.


Biola competed on day two in over 100 degree weather. The pressure and the heat was turned up. Penor was Biola’s top individual scorer as she improved, moving up to tie for seventh place overall in Biola’s largest tournament of the season. Penor totaled a score of 146 at the end of day two. Unfortunately the women did not perform consistently, as scores went up and places dropped. Davidson tied for 32nd place, seniors Jules Loibl tied for 44th place, Rachel Reynolds tied for 59th place, and Sophia Karnazes tied for 74th place. The women overall had a combined score of 613 tied for 11th place with Colorado Christian University.

Women’s golf will remain in Arizona to compete all day April 5-6 at the West Texas A&M Desert Invite. The invitational will take place in Tucson, Ariz. at the The Lodge at Ventana Canyon.
