EVANSVILLE, IND. - Not much went right for the John A. Logan College women's golf team Monday as the Volunteers shot 21 strokes higher as a team (364) than the opening round of 343 it posted on Sunday.

Because of that slip, Logan fell from 10th overall to 11th out of 13 schools competing at the Screaming Eagles Invitational hosted by the University of Southern Indiana. The Vols' two-day total was 707.

Freshman Adrian Brown of Carterville followed up Sunday's magnificent round of 77 with a respectable 82 Monday and finished tied for 12th at 159. She was 13 strokes back of the medalist from Ohio Dominican University.

The Vols' next best performance also came from a freshman, Reagan Keepes of Mount Carmel, who carded a 91 on the day for a two-day total of 179, placing her in a tie for 53rd place.

Sophomore Kirsten Faulkner of Massac County turned in a 91, as well, to finish at 180 and tied for 56th place.

Sophomore Chelsea Capel of Marion notched a 100 for a total score of 189, good for a tie for 63rd.

Freshman Payton Choate of Trico was at 104 Monday for a two-day total of 204 and 71st place. There were 76 golfers altogether.

The only other local school - Rend Lake - enjoyed a good day on the links Monday, finishing at 323 to move from 11th place to seventh overall (669).

"Other than Adrian, we just didn't score very well today," said Vols head coach Bill Glenn. "Although our team finish wasn't what I hoped it would be, it was good for the girls to compete against players from four-year schools. That can only help as the season progresses. We will get back to work in practice and try to improve upon our performance at the next meet."
