TAHLEQUAH – Northeastern State is within striking distance to win its own home tournament following a 298 team round on Monday.   The RiverHawks are four shots back of Oklahoma Christian and holds a one-stroke lead over Central Oklahoma and Southwestern Oklahoma who are tied for third place at the Cherokee Springs Golf Course.  Ebba Moberg paces the RiverHawks on the course with an even 72, and is tied for seventh overall.   Freshman Aitana Hernandez is tied for tenth carding a 74.  Oklahoma Christian's Abigail Rigsby presently is the medalist leader with a 70, and holds a one shot lead over five players tied for runner-up.

QUICK RUNDOWN

  • Second lowest round for Moberg at the NSU Women's Golf Classic (best 71).
  • Lowest team score since the opening round of the 2016 edition of the classic where the RiverHawks carded a 298.
FROM THE COACH
"Four shots in golf, you can make that up in a few holes...it's anyone's ballgame," said head coach Scott Varner.  "There are a lot of teams that could win; Oklahoma Christian separated themselves a little bit, but really anyone in the top six has a chance tomorrow.  The forecast looks good for the final round and I think you will see several really low scores."
