Going into the final round of the Patriot League Championship on April 23-24, the Bison shot a 312 and 314 in the first two rounds, respectively. In the final round of 18 holes, the Bison shot an incredible 301, a record low score for the Bison in any round of a Patriot League Championship.

The Bison finished with a strong score of 927 and secured fourth place in the Patriot League. It was an emotional weekend for everyone since it was not only the seniors’ last tournament, but also the end of head coach Kevin Jamieson’s final season. Jamieson has served as the program’s head for 16 years and has worked tirelessly to better the women’s golf team from his first day to his last.

Emily Larson ’17 and Lindsay Dodovich ’18 both had standout individual performances. Larson tied for fourth with a score of 229 over all three rounds and Dodovich shot a 232, placing her in a tie for ninth.

“It was great to see everyone’s hard work pay off in the last round and it was an awesome end to the season,” Dodovich said.

Jen Lee ’16 performed well in her last collegiate golf tournament. She tied for 11th place overall with a score of 234, alongside teammate Katie Childers ’19.

Larson received First-Team All-Patriot League honors at the conclusion of the tournament. Dodovich received Second-Team All-Patriot League honors this season, which was the first All-Patriot League selection of her career.
