Suns Post Program's Best 36-Hole Score

Arkansas Tech’s women’s golf team is developing a trend for breaking school records during the 2011-12 season.

The Golden Suns returned team scores of 312 on Monday and 305 on Tuesday for a 36-hole total of 617 at the University of Central Oklahoma Fall Classic. It is the lowest 36-hole team total in Arkansas Tech women’s golf history.

Rebecka Surtevall set a new Arkansas Tech individual record for 36 holes by firing rounds of 77 and 72 for a 149 total.

Surtevall’s 72 on Tuesday was just one stroke off the 18-hole Golden Suns’ record, which was established by Niki Possage just two weeks earlier when she shot 71 at the Northeastern State University Classic.

Arkansas Tech finished tied for 10th among 21 teams in the UCO Fall Classic, which was played at the 5,951-yard, par-70 Lincoln Park East Golf Course in Oklahoma City.

Surtevall earned a share of 14th place in the individual standings.

Elizabeth Sweetnam (T-19th, 77-73-150), Alyssia Duvall (T-80th, 80-82-162), Taylor Kline (T-87th, 78-85-163) and Possage (T-91st, 86-78-164) also represented the Golden Suns.

Arkansas Tech’s Megan Jeffery (T-77th, 80-81-161) competed as an individual.

St. Edward’s University (291-286-577) won the team title by two strokes over runner-up Northeastern State.

Brenna Moore of Midwestern State defeated Whitney McAteer of Northeastern State in a sudden death playoff to win the individual crown. Moore and McAteer both completed 36 holes in 2-under par 138.

The Golden Suns will return to action Oct. 17-18 in the University of Arkansas at Monticello Fall Classic in Bryant.
