The women’s golf team finished fourth in a field of 11 at their home tournament, the Murray State Invitational, April 10-11 at Frances E. Miller Memorial Golf Course in Murray.

Sophomore Minta Yin and freshman Moa Folke, last week’s OVC Co-Golfer of the Week, led the Racers with two top-10 finishes in fifth and ninth, respectively.

The University of Cincinnati, Morehead State and Xavier carded lower scores than the Racers, but Murray State scored 13 strokes lower than their next closest conference competitor Belmont. Headed into the OVC Tournament Monday through Wednesday in Huntsville, Ala., the Racers have prepared by facing non-conference opponents all season.

Yin, who played as an individual in the event, carded rounds of 81-72-75 in the event while Folke carded 78-72-80 in team play.

The Racers’ nine-day break in tournaments allows time for practice and travel as they prepare to defend their OVC title in The Huntsville Tournament next week in hopes of progressing to the NCAA tournament.
