The Biola women’s golf team wrapped up their first tournament of the 2022-23 season with a tie for fifth place out of 16 teams at the Swan Memorial on Tuesday. The two-day tournament was held at Todd Creek Golf Club in Thornton, Colorado. Biola (925, +61) trailed fourth place Colorado State Pueblo (924, +60) by a single swing at the conclusion of the tournament. 


The Eagles’ success on Par 3’s resulted in the lowest average score amongst competitors in the tournament, as well as being tied for the most eagles courtesy of Madison Voisard and Abigale Morris contributing to that total. 


Voisard finished the tournament tying for seventh and leading the Biola leaderboard. Voisard finished two strokes over par with a tie for first when the first day of the tournament concluded. In her first round, she carded 78 with three birdies as well as a four-under-par in her second attempt with five birdies and an eagle. Voisard’s most impressive accomplishment of the tournament came in her second round of 68 which tied her with Biola’s current record holder Sami Penor for the best single round in the history of the women’s golf program at Biola. 

Voisard carded a score of 80 in her final round, followed by Brady Turnquist (T19, +16), Rachel Shaw (T29, +19), Melanie Reyes (T34, +20), and Morris (42, +24).
