CARBONDALE – It was not the best of days for the John A. Logan College women’s golf team. The Volunteers posted a Day 1 score of 352 Sunday at the Saluki Invitational hosted by Southern Illinois University at Hickory Ridge Golf Course in Carbondale.

Logan is in 14th place, but still 10 strokes ahead of the only other junior college team – Rend Lake – that was invited to play in the field. All other participants are four-year schools.

Top individual performer for the Vols Sunday was Nashville sophomore Mollie Borowiak with an 82. Fellow soph, Brittanie Garrison of Carmi, was one stroke back at 83. Sophomore Abby Miller of Anna had the team’s third-best score at 90. Sophomore Dana Kaufmann of Carterville followed at 97 and freshman Morgan Stacks checked in at 98.

A pleasant surprise for the Vols while competing as an individual was Marion native Chelsea Capel with a 91. Freshman Kirsten Faulkner of Massac County, also competing as an individual, turned in a 105.

“All in all, it was not a terrible day, but it was not anywhere near what we are capable of scoring,” said Vols head coach Bill Glenn. “I thought Mollie and Brittanie were solid today to finish in the low 80s, and I was especially pleased with the play of Chelsea. She had our fourth-best score overall, but unfortunately, we were not able to count it toward the team score. I would like to think that we will all play better Monday.”

Tee time today is set for 8 a.m.
