Minnesota State Women Claim First NSIC Title, Ending Augustana's Run of Nine Straight

April 28, 2019

 
  MORTON, Minn. – Helped by three golfers finishing inside the top-5 Sunday at Dacotah Ridge Golf Club, the Minnesota State University women’s golf team secured its first Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference championship, putting an end to Augustana University’s string of nine straight conference victories.
 
The Mavericks previously claimed five North Central Conference championships with their first coming in 1989.
 
MSU senior Abbe Partington, from Winona, Minn., began the championship with a round of 77 and carded the same score during Sunday’s final round to earn medalist honors at 19-over 235, edging sophomore teammate Alissa Carlson by one stroke.
 
The Mavericks also got help from sophomore Maddy Messin, who carded a pair of 78’s to finish in fourth place at 238.
 
With the win Sunday, the Mavericks earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Division II Central Super Regional May 6-8 at Muskogee Country Club in Muskogee, Okla., marking the 11th consecutive trip to the postseason for Minnesota State.
