Rouse Ranks No. 9 on Leaderboard at KWU Spring Invite

Salina, Kan.—Freshman Joshua Rouse posted two great rounds for the Panhandle State men’s golf team at the Kansas Wesleyan Spring Invitational this week. The Yuma, Ariz. native scored five over-par for the tournament to place ninth individually among the field of 63 golfers.

Both Aggie golf teams competed in the event held at the Salina Country Club Monday and Tuesday, March 26-27. The men’s course held a par of 70, spanning 6,133-yards. Rouse shot 72 on Monday and added one stroke for a 73 on Tuesday helping the Aggie men mark their lowest team scores this year. Sophomore Chandler Evans carded his lowest score of the season in round one with a 76, and finished with an 82 in round two. Evans and junior Sergi Teller matched for the tournament to tie for 36th place individually. Teller shot one stroke higher than his lowest round of the year with a 77 in the first round; he added six to his second round to shoot 82. Teammates Karsten Harrison and Lucas Heathington also shot well over the 36-hole meet, with Harrison improving from an 85 on Monday to a 77 on Tuesday. Heathington maintained consistency with scores of 82, 81.

Overall, the men’s team placed seventh among the nine teams competing with team scores of 307 and 312 for the tournament. Park University earned the team title with scores of 291 and 282 and William Penn University’s Zachary Chegwidden shot three under-par (69, 68) to place first individually.

The women’s team took on the 5,803-yard, par-72 course with three representatives in each round. Sophomores Rylee Higgins and De’Lanee Doyle finished 23 and 26 respectively, and freshman Bree-Ann Carwin placed 27. Higgins turned in a team low of 96 in Monday’s first round, marking a 100 on Tuesday. Doyle and Carwin each saw improvement from their first tournament at Midwestern State, with Doyle carding a combined score of 279 and Carwin shooting 314 for the tournament.

With just three women’s teams on the docket, Kansas Wesleyan won the event both as a team and individual performance. KWU’s team matched scores of 329 for each round and Palmer Bosanko finished first overall with scores of 79 and 78. Murray State Community College and Park University followed as the second and third place teams.

The Panhandle State golf teams compete again next week at the South Central Kansas Spring Invitational hosted by Southwestern College in Winfield April 2-3. That will be the final tournament of the regular season for the Aggie men. The women’s team will travel to Oklahoma City April 16-17 for their last event of the year.
