CARBONDALE – The John A. Logan College women’s golf team showed improvement in the second day of the Saluki Invitational, but still finished in 11th place with a two-day total of 739.

The Vols were 13 strokes better as a team (363) compared to Sunday’s round of 376. Top performer for Logan was freshman Adrian Brown of Carterville who shot 173 (86 on Monday and 87 on Sunday). Brown finished tied for 34th.

Sophomore Kirsten Faulkner of Metropolis was two strokes back at 175 (87, 88) and tied for 38th. Freshman Reagan Keepes of Mount Carmel trimmed 10 strokes off her score to finish at 192 (91, 101) and placed 57th.

Sophomore Chelsea Capel of Marion was one stroke better on Monday with a combined score of 199 (99, 100) and placed 59th. Freshman Payton Choate of Campbell Hill completed tourney play at 215 (109, 106) and placed 62nd.

SIU-Carbondale won the tournament team title with a two-day total of 636. SIU-Edwardsville was second at 637.

Vols head coach Bill Glenn said he was glad to see improvement from one day to the next.

“It was nice to see us take 13 strokes off our total from Sunday and the improved weather probably had a lot to do with that,” he said. “We still have a lot of work to do to get where we need to be at the Region 24 tourney, but we’re making progress.”
