Wooster women’s golf takes third at NCAC Championships

Melissa Burtscher was one of three College of Wooster women's golfers to earn all-conference honors as the Scots placed third at the NCAC Championships.

A quick recap of the past week of athletics at The College of Wooster: 

WOMEN’S GOLF (NCAC Championships – 3rd/6 teams, 1,098 strokes) 

Wooster’s early-Sunday charge pulled the Fighting Scots ahead of Allegheny College, then the Black and Gold held off the Gators down the stretch to secure the program’s first third-place North Coast Athletic Conference finish in over a decade. Wooster’s 1,098 strokes at the 54-hole NCAC Championships ranked two strokes ahead of Allegheny’s 1,100, and the Scots’ third-place finish is tied for the highest in program history. Additionally, Wooster matched its program record with three Scots – sophomore Melissa Burtscher, first-year Ally Siewert, and senior Kayla Audette – earning all-conference honors. 

Wooster entered Sunday 11 strokes back of Allegheny, and the Scots made that total up, and then some, by the turn. Wooster’s four counting scorers played the back-nine at the par-73, 5,834-yard Westbrook Country Club at 24-over-par. Allegheny saw its four scorers go 39-over-par in the opening nine holes, giving Wooster a four-stroke lead. Wooster went 35-over-par on the front-nine, while Allegheny checked in at 33-over-par.
