Augustana, Trautman Win Super Region Titles

May 11, 2018

ST. CHARLES, Missouri -- Augustana's Kali Trautman shot the lowest score of the second round in the NCAA Division 2 Women's Super Regional, and she posted the third-lowest score on the final day. That's a pretty good recipe for success, and it worked for her this week, as she claimed medalist honors. While she was at it, she helped the Vikings win the team championship by 10 strokes. 

Trautman opened the tournament with a 2-over-par 74 on Monday in the first round at The Missiouri Bluffs, which put her in fifth place. The senior from Clear Lake, S.D.,  moved up to second with a 69 on Day 2 and sealed the deal with a 72 on Wednesday. Her 54-hole total of 215 (1 under) brought her in four clear of the field. 

There was a three-way tie for second at 219 among Peerada Piddon (Arkansas Tech), Josefina Haupt (Lindenwood) and Helle Leed (Southern Arkansas).

The Augustana team, like Trautman, moved up each day, starting with a 302 on Monday. That was good for second place. A second-round 296 put the Vikings in a tie for the lead with Lindenwood, the host team, and they closed things out with the lowest team score of the week, a 292, which gave them an overall 890 and a 10-stroke victory. Lindenwood finished second at 900, two ahead of Arkansas Tech. 

In addition to Trautman, Augustana had two other players in the top 13 individually. Hannah Hankinson wasn't in the top 20 with nine holes to play, but the sophomore from Edina played the final nine in 3 under for a 73 and a 225. That tied her for 11th. 

Emily Israelson, a senior from Staples-Motley who won the NSIC individual crown this spring (while Augustana was winning its ninth consecutive conference team championship), shot 75 at Missouri Bluffs on Wednesday and finished one stroke behind Hankinson at 226, in 13th place all by herself.

The top three teams and top three individual not on an advancing team earned places in the Women's D2 NCAA Championships next week, May 16-19, at Bay Oaks Country Club in Houston. 

This was the ninth time since 2007-08 that the Vikings have finish first or second in the Super Region. They were second last year in the region, and then tied for ninth at the NCAA tournament, led by Israelson, who was 13th individually.
