Hey Illini Fans!!

We just finished our fall season at the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational in Austin, Texas. We were invited to play with many of the best teams in the country as well as play on a great course at the University of Texas Golf Club.

Although we didn't play as well as we had hoped, we had a lot of positives come from this tournament. First of all, Pim shot her career best round of a one-under par 71 and also had her career best tournament! Way to go Pim! Also, as a team we shot our lowest tournament round of the season in that final round at 298, so it was a great way to end the season.
