LCC grad part

of record efforts

CARMEL, Ind. — Lima Central Catholic graduate Shelby Warner led the University of Findlay to a record-breaking round during the final day of competition at the Indianapolis Fall Invitational, which wrapped up Tuesday at the Prairie View Golf Club.

The Oilers posted a school record-breaking team score of 293, bettering the old mark of 297 that was set last season during the NCAA Division II National Championship. Their final round score, coupled with their 302 Monday, enabled them to finish in a tie for third place at the event.

Findlay’s 36-hole score of 595 (302, 283) was also good enough to establish a new school record. The score eclipsed the 602 shot by the Oilers last year at the NCAA Division II National Championship. Dallas Baptist won the tournament with a two-round score of 585 (300, 285) while Indianapolis took second with a 587 (290, 297). The Oilers tied Tarleton State (300, 295) for third.

Warner, a senior, kicked off her final year with the Oilers by tieing Marie Coors of St. Leo for runner-up honors at the event with a 1-under par score of 143, the second-lowest 36-hole score in school history. Warner posted a 1-over par score of 73 in the opening round before carding a 2-under par score of 70 on day two, the fourth-lowest mark in program history. Indianapolis’ Katharina Keilich was the event medalist at 3-under-par 141.
