Sep. 14—Alvernia’s Cassidy Miksich shot a 2-under 69 Tuesday to set a school single-round record for women’s golf and win the Elizabethtown College Invitational at Hershey Country Club (East).
Miksich, a first-year student from Tyrone, broke the mark of 71 set by teammate Katie Lapinsky (2022 at Muhlenberg CC) and Yupha Muzyka (2019 at Raven’s Claw).
She also helped the Golden Wolves win the team title and set the school single-round record of 310, breaking the mark of 315.
“Cassidy’s achievement on the course was special for our program, the team and Cassidy as a golfer,” said Alvernia coach Tom O’Connell in a release from the school. “Not only did her score put her in the Alvernia record books, it more importantly helped us pick up a win at a tournament hosted on a championship golf course with a lot of history.”
Miksich began with a par on the par-4 seventh before making a bogey on No. 8. Following a birdie on the par-4 10th, she made back-to-back bogeys to fall to 2-over.
She got one stroke back with a birdie on the par-5 14th, then made another birdie on No. 17 to get back to even.
After three straight pars, Miksich made a birdie on No. 3 and, following two more pars, closed with a birdie on No. 6.
She was 4-under over her final 11 holes.
Finishing in second for Alvernia and tied for second overall was McKylie Boreman at 77.
Also for the Golden Wolves, Rylee Stenzel and Lapinsky tied for sixth at 82.
The Golden Wolves finished seven strokes ahead of York in the team standings.
