Complete 2010 MIAC Meet Preview
MOORHEAD, Minn. (9/30/10)-- It has been an up-and-down interesting year for the Concordia-Moorhead women’s golf team in 2010 and the Cobbers are hoping to finish on the upswing as they compete in the MIAC Championship Meet.
Concordia has participated in three meets this season as a team and had a pair of individuals participate in a fourth meet. The Cobbers are coming off one of their best meets of the year as they finished sixth at the St. Ben’s Invite last weekend.
Concordia is led by sophomore Laura Ayers (Cottage Grove, Minn./Park of Cottage Grove HS) who has been the low Cobber in two of the four meets she has played in this season. Ayers currently leads the team with a 91.1 stroke average and has a season-best score of 86 which she shot at the annual Concordia Invitational. Joining Ayers as the only CC golfer to compete in four meets this year is senior Jeanna Kratzke (Perham, Minn.) who is coming off her best meet of the season. Kratzke carded a team-best 188 at last weekend’s St. Ben’s Invite. Like Ayers, she has also shot an 86 this season. That season-best round occurred at the Division III Midwest Classic.
The key for the Cobbers in 2010 will be to find three other golfers who can avoid the “blow-up” round and post consistent scores for three straight days. Freshman Emily Frosaker (Bemidji, Minn.), Allison Turnquist (So., Braham, Minn.) and Kelsey Lofstedt (Fr., Rushford, Minn./Rushford-Peterson HS) round out the top 5 for Concordia. Frosaker is averaging 93.7 shots per round this year and fired a season-best 89 in the opening meet of the year at the Jimmie Invitational.
