OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — If you can’t win a golf tournament, at least you hope a teammate has to beat you to win it and that happened for Southern Nazarene as Marion Broedys won her first intercollegiate tournament in her first try.
The teammate she beat did the exact same thing last year as a freshman as well as Jordan Leibold took second just two strokes behind. After shooting a school record five-under par the day before, Leibold led by two strokes over Broedys. The freshman though fired back with a 69 on the par-72, 6,305-yard South Course at Lake Hefner.
“For her first two rounds of college golf, Marion came out and played exceptionally well,” said SNU Head Coach Derrick Taylor. “I couldn’t be more proud of a girl who came from Germany and was just scared and amazed to be here. Jordan struggled early in the round, but battled back to turn her second half around.”
Broedys and Leibold, who were the only two players under par in the tournament, helped Southern Nazarene fired a 605 as a team to take capture the Southwestern Christian Fall Golf Classic and finish six strokes ahead of second place Seminole State. Bellvue (Neb.) finished third at 615.
The Crimson Storm had all four countable scored in the top 15 as Laura Quevado tied for ninth with a 158 (79-79) while Kacey Acker tied for 12th with a 167 (82-85).
“It was a great start to the year and it’s hard to ask anything more than a win,” said Taylor. “We had two ladies go out and shoot two great rounds of golf and as a team we are off on the right track.”
