Madden leads team into 5th place


The Dixie State University women’s golf team stayed in the middle of the pack all tournament long and finished fifth overall as a team in the Pacific West Conference tournament championships at the Hawaii Prince Golf Club in Ewa Beach, Hawaii. 

DSU sophomore Shelby Madden fared well in the second round, shooting a 77 on the second day of competition. Madden’s overall score of 160 was the lowest combined amount of strokes for the Red Storm.

Individually, Madden ended up tied for eighth overall in the standings, and all five DSU golfers finished in the top 30 individually.

The fifth-place finish this year at the PacWest tournament is a telling improvement from Dixie’s ninth place finish in last year’s conference tournament. 

The University of Hawaii-Hilo won the tournament by a total of three strokes over California Baptist University.
