Women's Golf 2013-14 Season Review

Lang's 91 at the Mules' home tournament was 12 strokes better than her previous low round.
The Muhlenberg women’s golf team continued its steady revival, making gains in both quantity and quality during the 2013-14 year.

Just three years removed from not being able to field a complete team, the Mules competed in seven tournaments, their most since 2005 – and would have taken part in two more if not for weather complications. While Muhlenberg’s participation numbers were rising, the numbers on its scorecards were falling.

The Mules came in sixth at the Centennial Conference Championships, a one-place improvement from the previous year, and their two-day total of 849 was the lowest since 2008. Muhlenberg finished second at its home tournament in both the fall and spring with a pair of scores also representing their best marks at the event in six years.

One of the Mules’ newcomers was a big reason for the improvement. Freshman Emily Unrue ranked 14th in the CC with a team-leading stroke average of 95.29, finishing in the top 10 at four events and posting a season low of 89.

Junior Christina Bryde averaged 95.50 strokes per round and led the way at the conference championships, placing a career-best 11th with a 36-hole total of 187. Classmate Laura Glogovsky improved her score by 31 shots at the CC tournament and carded a career-best 101 at the spring Muhlenberg Invitational.

Kristin Lang, the team’s lone senior, turned in a pair of sub-100 rounds, including a career-low 91 at the Muhlenberg Invitational in the fall.

Sophomore Kerrilyn Lanza and junior Katie Seeman rounded out the lineup. Both shot 12 strokes better on the second day of the CC Championships than the first.
