The Oakland City University women's golf team is coached by David Hose, and play the majority of their matches during the Fall semester.
The Lady Oaks golf team opened their season at the Indiana University Golf Course, playing in the annual Battle at Bloomington, hosted by Indiana University-East. As a team, OCU shot a 415, good enough to best the host Red Wolves, while falling short of the Pomeroys of St. Mary of the Woods College. Individually, Brittney Walker earned her first collegiate victory, shooting a solid round of 89, three shots better than anyone else in the field.
Walker followed that up with a career best 78 to earn medallist honors in a tie-breaker at the St. Mary of the Woods Invitational, held at Hulman Links in Terre Haute, Indiana. The Lady Oaks shot a 384 as a team, a 31 stroke improvement in just two days, but were unable to defeat the Pomeroys, who shot 339 as a team.
Next up for the Lady Oaks is a trip to the National Christian College Athletic Association Midwest Regional Championship, held on Friday, September 12, and Saturday, September 13, at Timbergate Golf Course in Edinburgh, Indiana. The region champion will earn a spot in the NCCAA DI National Tournament.
The Oakland City University women's golf team returns its lone player from the 2012-13 campaign, while adding three talented freshmen to the team. Johni Hegger returns for her sophomore season after participating as an individual during her freshman season with the Oaks.
