"I'm very proud of Marcia and Cheryl," said UW-Oshkosh head coach Tim Gaubatz. "Their strong academic performance is an excellent reflection on their commitment to being the best in all that they can do."

UW-Oshkosh won the WIAC Championship and finished fourth at the NCAA Division III Championship this past year.

Other golfers recognized from the WIAC were Susan Karlman of UW-Eau Claire and Kendall Egnarski and Lisa Irons of UW-Whitewater.

UW-Oshkosh also had six selections, including Player of the Year Jennifer Young, on the 2003-04 All-WIAC women's golf team.

Titans Finish Fourth At NCAA Championship

UW-Oshkosh improved its final standing from a year ago by finishing fourth at the NCAA Division III Women's Golf Championship held Tuesday through Friday (May 11-14) at The Golf Courses of Lawsonia in Green Lake.

UW-Oshkosh, which placed fifth in its first appearance at the NCAA Division III Championship last year, finished fourth out of 10 teams with a 72-hole count of 1,321 strokes, 153-over par. The Titans took 1,361 strokes during last year's event that also was held at The Golf Courses of Lawsonia.

Methodist College (N.C.) took 1,303 strokes, 135-over par, to capture its fifth straight NCAA Division III title. The Lady Monarchs were followed by second-place University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (Texas) with 1,305 strokes and third-place DePauw University (Ind.) with 1,315. Methodist College won the 2003 title by 53 shots over second-place University of Mary Hardin-Baylor.

Finishing behind fourth-place UW-Oshkosh were fifth-place UW-Eau Claire with 1,344 strokes, sixth-place Gustavus Adolphus College (Minn.) with 1,355, seventh-place Simpson College (Iowa) with 1,360, eighth-place St. Mary's University (Ind.) with 1,384, ninth-place Mount Holyoke College (Mass.) with 1,390 and 10th-place Hardin-Simmons University (Texas) with 1,453.

UW-Oshkosh, which led the team scoring by six shots after the first day of competition and three after the second, was paced individually by Amy Simon (Sr. • Kaukauna). Simon shot an 82 on Friday to move from ninth-place to sixth in the final individual standings. Simon finished with a 72-hole score of 321 strokes, 29-over par. Prior to her 82, Simon had 18-hole rounds of 81, 76 and 82. Simon placed 13th at last year's NCAA Division III Championship with 334 strokes, 42-over par.

UW-Oshkosh, led by first-year head coach Tim Gaubatz, also had Cheryl Treadwell (So. • Brookfield) finish 22nd with 334 strokes (80-84-86-84), Cassie Graves (Sr. • Black Creek) 23rd with 335 strokes (85-82-81-87), Carrie Detjen (Sr. • Two Rivers) 26th with 337 strokes (81-84-82-90) and Jennifer Young (Fr. • Salem) 36th with 342 strokes (79-84-87-92). Treadwell placed 20th at last year's NCAA Division III Championship with 339 strokes, 47-over par.

Brittany Cary of McMurry University (Texas) won the individual title by two shots over Katie Taylor of Concordia College (Minn.) and Charlotte Williams of Methodist College. Playing the final day of competition in wet conditions after a steady morning rain, Cary carded an 8-over par 81 to finish with a 22-over total of 314 (85-77-71-81). She overtook Williams, who had led by one shot entering the final round. Taylor was tied with Cary entering Friday's play.

Titans Slip To Fourth Place At NCAA Championship

Methodist College (N.C.) showed Thursday (May 13) why it is the four-time defending champion at the NCAA Division III Women's Golf Championship.

The Monarchs carded a team score of 314 in the third round of the national championship and hold a seven-shot lead over the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (Texas) heading into Friday's (May 14) final round at The Golf Courses of Lawsonia in Green Lake.

Methodist College, which won the 2003 title by 53 shots over the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, has a 54-hole total of 964. The Crusaders are at 971 strokes after shooting a 313, the low team round of the tournament, on the par-73 layout of the Links Course.

Methodist College was again led by freshman Charlotte Williams, who carded her second consecutive 2-over par 75 to stand 13-over through 54 holes. She was 4-over on her round Thursday until she came to the 18th hole, a 407-yard par 5. The 18th hole played as the easiest hole on the golf course Thursday, and Williams took advantage of that by finishing her round with an eagle to get back to 2-over for the day.

Williams holds a one-shot lead over one of the 10 individuals not affiliated with one of the teams, Brittany Cary of McMurry University (Texas). She fired the low round of the tourney, a 2-under par 71, which is the best score in the two years the tournament has been at Lawsonia. Cary started her round at the 10th hole and birdied four of the last five holes on the back nine to go out in 3-under 34. She made pars on the first five holes of the front nine before back-to-back bogeys at holes six and seven. A birdie at the eighth hole and a par at the ninth gave her the 2-under finish.

Another of the individuals, Katie Taylor of Concordia College (Minn.) is tied with Cary at 14-over after shooting 79 on Thursday. Sarah Gates of DePauw University (Ind.), one of the second-round co-leaders, is in fourth place at 15-over after shooting 80. Kelly Cramp of McDaniel College (Md.), the other second-round co-leader, is tied for fifth at 17-over after shooting 82.

Defending champion Stefanie Simmerman of St. Mary's University (Ind.) is tied for seventh at 19-over after carding a 78.

The top local player is Amy Simon (Sr. • Kaukauna) of UW-Oshkosh, who is in ninth place at 20-over after shooting 82. Simon and her UW-Oshkosh teammates fell from the lead they had held for the first two rounds. The Titans shot 331 on Thursday and are in fourth place at 978, 14 shots behind Methodist College.

The chase for the team title is much tighter than it was a year ago. In 2003, Methodist College held a commanding 44-shot lead heading into the final round. The Monarchs have three teams with real striking distance of the title heading into the final round.

The University of Mary-Hardin Baylor moved from fourth place to second with consistency throughout its team. Amanda Tuskey shot 77, Holly Glover carded a 78, Carrie Franciskovic and Emily Breedlove both shot 79 and Meredith McArthur shot 85 for the Crusaders.

DePauw University is also hanging close, just 13 shots off the lead after shooting 324 on Thursday for a total of 977.

The third round was delayed for two hours due to weather, but it didn't seem to affect the play. The average score on Thursday was 83.40, which is the lowest of the three days of play.

The final round of the 72-hole tournament gets started Friday morning at 8 a.m.

Titans Retain Lead At NCAA Championship

UW-Oshkosh holds a three-shot advantage after Wednesday's (May 12) second round of the NCAA Division III Women's Golf Championship held in Green Lake.

The Titans, who led by six shots after the opening round on Tuesday (May 11), carded a team score of 326 for a 36-hole total of 647 on the par-73 layout of the Links Course at the Golf Courses of Lawsonia. Six-time defending champion Methodist College (N.C.) moved into sole possession of second place after shooting the low team round of the day, 323, and now has a total of 650.

DePauw University (Ind.) holds down third place after shooting 326 on Wednesday for a total of 653.

Amy Simon (Sr. • Kaukauna) led the charge for UW-Oshkosh on Wednesday by shooting a 3-over par 76 in warm but breezy conditions. She moved from a tie for 14th place in the individual standings to a tie for fourth with a 36-hole total of 157. Just as they did in the opening round, the Titans bunched their scores in round two. Cassie Graves (Sr. • Black Creek) carded an 82, and Jennifer Young (Fr. • Salem), Cheryl Treadwell (So. • Brookfield) and Carrie Detjen (Sr. • Two Rivers) all shot 84.

Methodist College was helped by one of the best rounds of the day from its own Charlotte Williams, who fired a 2-over 75. She birdied two of the final three holes and moved from a tie for 18th place after the opening round to a tie for fourth with Simon at 11-over.

The top two rounds of the day and the tournament belong to two of the three co-leaders. Katie Taylor of Concordia College (Minn.) and Kelly Cramp of McDaniel College (Md.) both shot a 1-over 74 and share the lead at the midway point at 8-over with first-round leader Sarah Gates of DePauw University.

Kramp, one of 10 individuals playing in the tournament not affiliated with one of the teams, was steady throughout the day. She birdied her first hole of the day, the 162-yard par-3 10th, and sprinkled in two more birdies, including her final hole of the day, to go along with four bogeys.

Taylor, another of the individuals competing, stood at 1-under on her round when she teed it up at the 146-yard par-3 seventh hole, her 16th hole of the day. Taylor made a double-bogey and then finished with a pair of pars to shoot 74.

Gates hung onto a share of the lead after shooting a 5-over par 78 in the second round. She had a wild ride on the front nine, with an eagle at the 439-yard par-5 fifth hole and a birdie at the second. She also carded a double-bogey at the sixth hole and bogeys at the first, fourth and ninth to go out in 2-over 38. She was 1-over on the back nine until a double-bogey at the 17th hole pushed her to a 40 on the inward nine.

The 17th hole played the toughest on the course, which is in immaculate condition for the championships. The 363-yard par 4 hole played 1.31 strokes over par for the second round and was one of three holes that played one stroke over par for the day. The third hole, a 367-yard par 4, was 1.20 strokes over par, and the 15th, a 379-yard par 4, was 1.00 strokes over par.

The third round begins Thursday (May 13) at 8 a.m. The tournament concludes on Friday (May 14).

Titans Take Early Lead At NCAA Championship

UW-Oshkosh, which is located just 25 miles east of Green Lake, is the leader after Tuesday's (May 11) first round of the NCAA Division III Women's Golf Championships.

The Titans carded a team score of 321 on the par-73 layout of the Links Course at the Golf Courses of Lawsonia. UW-Oshkosh leads by six shots over top-ranked DePauw University (Ind.) and six-time defending champion Methodist College (N.C.), which both shot 327.

UW-Oshkosh, which finished fifth at the championships in 2003, was led by Jennifer Young (Fr. • Salem), who fired a 6-over par 79 to tie for fifth place. The Titans bunched their scores together, with Cheryl Treadwell (So. • Brookfield) shooting 80, Carrie Detjen (Sr. • Two Rivers) and Amy Simon (Sr. • Kaukauna) both carding 81s and Cassie Graves (Sr. • Black Creek) shooting 85.

Sarah Gates of DePauw University stands alone atop the individual leaderboard. Gates carded a 3-over par 76 for a one-shot edge over Susan Karlman of UW-Eau Claire. Gates started on hole 10 and made the turn in 3-over, thanks in large part to a double-bogey seven at the par-5 16th. She played the front nine in even par and made three consecutive birdies on holes one through three.

What a difference a year makes for Karlman, who fired 88 in the first round of the championships in 2003. Karlman also started at hole 10 and had it to 2-under after six holes. She made the turn at 1-under, but a bogey at hole seven and a double-bogey at hole eight pushed her to a 4-over 77 for the day. Led by Karlman and Maggie Loney, who shot 79, the Blugolds are in fourth place in the team standings at 329. Powerhouse Methodist College , which won the title in 2003 by 53 shots over the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (Texas), was led by Hope Thomas, who shot 80 and is tied for eighth place.

Defending champion Stephanie Simmerman of St. Mary's College (Ind.) is tied for third place after the opening round. Simmerman carded a 78 and is tied with Kelli Groff of Gustavus Adolphus College (Minn.).

The top individual not competing with one of the 10 teams is Kelly Cramp of McDaniel College (Md.). She is tied for eighth after an opening-round 80. The average score for the 60 rounds on Tuesday was 85. The 379-yard par-4 15th hole was the toughest on the course. It played an average of 1.33 strokes over par. The eighth hole, a 322-yard par 4, was second at 1.02 strokes over par.

The 72-hole tournament resumes Wednesday (May 12) at 8 a.m. The tournament concludes Friday (May 14).

The Midwest Conference will serve as host of the event.

It's the second time in the eight-year history of the UW-Oshkosh program that the Titans have qualified as a team for the NCAA Division III Championship. Last year, UW-Oshkosh finished fifth in its first appearance at the event.
