Women's Golf 2012 Season Review


Christina Bryde
Bryde finished the season with a 90.75 stroke average, the second-lowest in school history.
The 2012 season was a welcome back party of sorts for the Muhlenberg women’s golf team.

With a youthful roster featuring four underclassmen, the Mules who did not have enough players to field a full team the last two seasons, played in three tournaments. They were able to compete in the team race at the Centennial Conference Championship for the first time in three seasons. They finished fifth overall after posting an 11-shot improvement between rounds one and two, the second-best in the field.

Freshman Christina Bryde was the brightest of the new additions, finishing in the top 10 in her first two tournaments, including tying for medalist honors at the Ursinus Invitational after shooting an 84, the best score by a Mule since 2007. Muhlenberg finished fourth at Ursinus, third amongst Division III teams, 14 strokes ahead of fifth.

Bryde then led the squad at the CC Championship finishing 14th with a two-round total of 190, the sixth-best ever by a Mule at the conference tournament.

Senior Amanda Heiberger closed out her career by tying for 22nd at the CC Championship, the highest finish of her championship career. She also set new career low rounds in the first two tournaments of the year.

Sophomore Kristin Lang finished third on the team at the championship tournament, while freshman Katie Seeman also had a solid season, posting an impressive 28-shot improvement between her first two career tournaments.

Sophomore Colleen Caldwell finished up her first season with the squad by shaving 10 shots off her score between rounds one and two at the CC Championship.
