WCG: Augie Claims Fifth Straight NSIC Title

WCG: Augie Claims Fifth Straight NSIC Title
MORTON, MN -

Augustana College women's golf captured its fifth straight Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference championship on Sunday afternoon shooting a 324 in the fourth and final round for a total score of 152-over-par 1,304 (326-330-324-324). The Vikings shot their lowest rounds of the 72-hole championships in the final 36 holes and finished 33 strokes ahead of second-place finisher Concordia-St. Paul.

Maggie Leland, a senior from Alexandria, Minn., picked up her second career NSIC individual title capping off a stellar conference resume during her four years. Leland fired an 87 in the final round of play and finished two strokes ahead of teammate Marisa Toivonen. Leland posted a 34-over-par 322 (81-77-77-87) in the 72-hole championships to win individual medalist honors for the second time. She won the individual NSIC championship during her sophomore campaign in 2011-12 to go along with second-place finishes as a freshman and a junior.

Augustana has had a player win individual medalist honors at the NSIC Championship in three straight seasons and four times in the last five seasons. Augustana placed all five of its players in 23rd or better this season and had three players in the top 11.

Concordia-St. Paul placed second at 185-over-par 1,337 (332-324-346-335) and was followed Minnesota State at 206-over-par 1,358 (339-329-346-344).

Toivonen finished second overall in just her second season at Augustana. She fired a 36-over-par 324 (87-80-82-75) including her lowest round of the tournament this afternoon to finish just two strokes off the lead. Toivonen placed fourth overall as a freshman last season and now has two top-five finishes in her young career.

Allie Ostrander delivered her third straight top-five finish at the NSIC Championships placing third overall with a 37-over-par 325 (79-83-82-81). Ostrander brought in consistent numbers after each round firing her second lowest round of the 72-hole championships this afternoon.

Jennifer Pederson registered an 11th-place finish for the Vikings posting a 54-over-par 342 (79-90-83-90). Pederson has finished 12th or better in two straight conference championships.

Freshman Jordan Bormann fired her lowest round of the four-round tournament with a nine-over-par 81 on Sunday to finish tied for 23rd overall with a 70-over-par 358 (100-93-84-81).

Augustana will now turn its attention to the Central Region Championships as the Vikings are currently ranked third in the NCAA Central Region rankings. The Vikings have placed third or better at the Central Region Championships in six straight seasons, including three straight titles from 2010-2012.

The Central Region Championships will be played May 4-6 at Tartan Park Golf Club in Lake Elmo, Minn.
