The Iowa women’s golf team finished the 2021-22 season with a 14th place finish in last weekend’s Big Ten tournament in Pittsburgh at Fox Chapel Golf Course. The Hawkeyes had a team score of 76 over par in three rounds.

Junior Jacque Galloway was the Hawkeyes’ top finisher, finishing 58th over three rounds with a score of 18 over par.

Monet Chun of Michigan won the individual tournament with 8-under par 205 overall. The Wolverines took the tournament team crown with 5-over par 857.

Galloway competed for the Hawkeyes Freshmen Paula Miranda and Caroline Gray, juniors Lea Zeitler and Morgan Goldstein, and senior Dana Lerner.

Miranda, Zeitler, Goldstein, Lerner and Gray placed 64th, 68th, 71st, 82nd and 84th respectively.

At the three-day event, Iowa combined just 12 birdies, made 109 bogies, and had 20 results from double bogey or worse.

Goldstein’s second round score of 4 over par 75 was the lowest single round Hawkeye shot in Pittsburgh.

The conference championship signaled the end of a spring season in which the Hawkeyes recorded just one top 10 finish. The Hawkeyes’ best spring performance came at the Maryb S. Kauth Invitational. Iowa finished ninth in that tournament. Only nine teams competed in the Maryb S. Kauth Invitational.

The Hawkeyes will lose three seniors in the offseason — barring claiming additional COVID-19-related eligibility. Lerner, Manuela Lizarazu and Jordan Amelon were the only seniors on Iowa’s active roster at the end of the 2021-22 season.
