RESULTS | FORT WAYNE, Ind. – Karen Zambrano (JR/Madrid, Colombia) capped off a solid fall season with the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference Golfer of the Year award, which goes to the individual who posts the lowest cumulative score through six conference rounds.

Zambrano captured the honor and first team All-Conference honors thanks to a third place, 159 (77-82) after she carded a final round 82 at WHAC Jamboree No. 3 hosted by Indiana Tech at Coyote Creek Golf Club on Tuesday. It is the third All-Conference award for the junior as she took honorable mention honors as a freshman when she was also named Newcomer of the Year. She earned first team honors last season.

As a team the Crusaders struggled and finished the event fourth with a 667 (324-343) after a disappointing 343 in the final round. McKenzie Chaisson (FR/Oxford, Mich.), who earned All-Conference second team honors, finished strong as she posted her second straight 80 to finish fourth with a 160 (80-80). Her second round score was tops for MU on the day.

Kayla Gerhardt (FR/Flushing, Mich.)'s 89 was third lowest for MU in the final round. She also shot 89 on day one for a 36-hole 178 to finish 25th. Kristen Szabelski (FR/Livonia, Mich.) carded a 92 in the final round for a 171 (79-92) to finish 17th and complete the day two scoring. Kelsey Edwards (JR/Ortonville, Mich.) wrapped up the event with a 100 for a two-day 188 (88-100).

UNOH captured the WHAC regular season crown as they won the event with a 635 (319-316). The host Warriors finished second with a 653 (326-327) while Lawrence Tech was third with a 661 (330-331). MU was fourth followed by Siena Heights in fifth with a 687 (339-348).

Madonna will break for the winter and return to the course on Mar. 17-18 as they take part in the Heritage Hill Collegiate hosted by Lawrence Tech at Heritage Hill Golf Club in Shepherdsville, Kentucky.
