The Women’s Golf team placed fourth at the Sun Belt Championships earlier this week. Iben Hvass and Yeji Shin led the Eagles on the final day to help secure in the top half of the conference in their inagural season.

“They have really come together as a team unit this year, and it has been amazing to see the growth in their golf games and themselves as student-athletes,” head coach Emily Kuhfeld said in an interview. “The best is yet to come for this special group.”

Shin finished sixth overall, and was named All-Tournament. The freshman has put together a solid season and is looking to continue to grow.

“Yeji had her best finish of the year at this event, and I could not be happier with the way her game is progressing,” Kuhfeld said.

This was a very young team featuring four freshmen and two juniors. They will look to continue to progress and get better this offseason.

Kuhfeld said, “the best is yet to come for this special group.”
