CARBONDALE - It was a rough start to the two-day Saluki Invitational Golf Tournament for the John A. Logan College women's team Sunday.

The Volunteers posted a four-player combined score of 376 and are in 11th place out of 11 teams with one round left to play Monday.

Top player for Logan was freshman Adrian Brown of Carterville, who shot an 87 for 18 holes.

Sophomore Kirsten Faulkner of Metropolis followed at 88. Sophomore Chelsea Capel of Marion finished up with a 100. Freshman Reagan Keepes of Mount Carmel checked in at 101 and freshman Payton Choate of Campbell Hill carded a 106.

“I thought we played much better today than we did in Florida a few weeks ago,” said Vols head coach Bill Glenn. “Adrian and Kirsten both shot in the 80s, and considering the windy conditions, I would say that’s pretty good. Hopefully, our other three (Chelsea Capel, Reagan Keepes and Payton Choate) will find their stroke and get their scores down on the second day.”

The Vols are one of only two junior college teams participating in the tounament with Rend Lake being the other.
