BATAVIA, Ohio (9/13/2016) — Senior Sarah Thompson (Canton, Mich. / Plymouth) recorded her second career victory in come-from-behind fashion as she won the NKU Fall Classic on Tuesday.

Here is a summary of the action at the NKU Fall Classic

Coaches Corner With Terri Anthony-Ryan:
“I think it was a pretty good opening tournament for us. I think we showed a few of the Horizon League teams that we are much improved from the last the two seasons.”

“Sarah played with a lot of confidence. She didn’t putt the best, but she was great up and down. She was throwing darts at the pin and on her last day, maybe she missed two or three fairways at the most.”

“I was happy to see Julia rebound from a few bad holes that she ran into, but with this just her first collegiate event, she showed a lot of positives.”

“Sarah and Brooke are two seniors and both came back to play well in the final round and give us a good score.”

“Overall, I like the way we played and with the depth of this team, we will only get better as everyone will challenge each other.”
