CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO. - The John A. Logan College women's golf team placed second at a seven-team tournament that featured competition against four-year universities at Dalhousie Golf Course Tuesday. 

The Volunteers turned in a two-day total of 731, or 14 strokes back of the leader, Marian University of Indianapolis. 

Logan had rounds of 364 on Monday and 367 Tuesday. Heavy winds skewed the results.

The Vols finished ahead of Columbia, Culver-Stockton, Mount Mercy, Christian Brothers and Lindenwood-Belleville.

Sophomore Reagan Keepes of Mount Carmel was the top individual performer for Logan. She tied for third overall with a 174 (86, 88). Sophomore Adrian Brown 182 (87, 95) of Carterville had the second-best individual score on the team. 

Freshmen Mariah Bushue 185 (92, 93) and Madison Bushue 190 (99, 91) of Effingham had the third- and fourth-best scores. Sophomore Payton Choate 202 (105, 97) of Campbell Hill was fifth. 

"It's not the scores we had hoped for, but considering it was our first tournament of the spring and considering how the wind impacted everyone's performance today, I'd say we did OK," said Vols head coach Bill Glenn. "I expect our scores to come down in the meets ahead."

Logan will next compete in the Saluki Invitational Sunday and Monday at Hickory Ridge Golf Course in Carbondale.
