McDermaid Takes Individual Honors at IPFW Fall Classic
Auburn, Ind. (Oct. 17, 2006) ???C For a second week in a row an Oakland women???s golfer claimed top honors at a tournament when freshman Austin McDermaid (Grand Blanc, Mich.) claimed the top spot at the rain-shortened IPFW Fall Classic. Her round of 69 is the lowest by an OU player since the school???s move to Division I and matched the lowest this season by any player in the Mid-Con. Her effort helped Oakland to a second-place finish in the team standings with a score of 310, just two shots behind Bradley. Playing in her first tournament of the season and as an individual, sophomore Kelly Wilke (Sandusky, Ohio) also turned in an impressive performance, firing off a 73 to finish second overall. Giving Oakland another top-10 finisher was Stacy Goins (Rochester Hills, Mich.) who came in with a 77 to tie for eighth overall. The three remaining Golden Grizzly all carded rounds of 82 to finish in a tie for 23rd in the 53-player field. Jenna Goulet (Forest, Ontario), Christina Cibrario (Milford, Mich.) and Nikki Swan (Tipp City, Ohio) all completed their rounds with the same total number on their score cards. Oakland is now finished with the fall portion of its schedule and will return to action in the spring of 2007.
