KETTERING, Ohio (10/23/2012) --
The Titan women's golf team just keeps on winning as Detroit held on to claim its third tournament title this season with a school-record 588 at the Dayton Fall Invitational, played on the North Course at the NCR Country Club in Kettering, Ohio.
“The ladies played great,” said head coach Terri Anthony-Ryan
. “Just seeing how they came back from last week and how beat up we are, this was a great win and a great way to end the fall.”
The Titans posted a 297 in the second round to end with a 588 (291,297), four strokes ahead of Valparaiso. That total is two strokes better than Detroit's 590 it carded in winning the 2011 Detroit Titans Fall Classic, while the 297 second-round mark was the fourth time in school history that UDM has gone under 300.
In the fall campaign, UDM recorded victories at the Detroit Titans Fall Classic (594) and the Youngstown State Invitational (609), and with the win at Dayton, the Titans have now won 12 career tournaments with five coming since the fall of 2011.
