West Union graduate Marci Schneider performing well for Wheeling Jesuit golf team

West Union High School graduate, Marci Schneider, with a 5th place finish individually, helped Wheeling Jesuit University capture the 2015 Mountain East Conference Preview Golf Tournament held at Moundsville Country Club in Moundsville, WV September 6 and 7. With a top 5 finish, she was named to the all-tournament team. Marci is starting her sophomore year at Wheeling Jesuit University and is excited with her improvement over the past year.

“I worked hard this past summer to improve my short game and to hit the ball longer,” Schneider said. “I felt comfortable this weekend with my play and the nerves were not as bad as they were last year. The team is young and with our continued improvement I think we should win the Mountain East Conference title this year.”

Other Wheeling Jesuit teammates played well also. Kasey Frazier (Galloway, NJ) fired rounds of 77 and a stellar second-day 73 for the two-day total of 150 to become the tournament medalist. Bridget Lynn (Chicago, IL) captured third with a total of 155 (78 and 77), while Schneider became WJU’s third All-Tournament team member in fifth with a score of 164 (83 and 81)

The Cardinals took the team title with a final score of 634, 20 strokes ahead of second place Notre Dame College (654), who was the favorite to win the tournament.

“I am very pleased with the progress we have made,” WJU Head Coach Sue Vail said. “We had three girls finish in the top five, and I believe that as a team, we are just beginning to touch our potential. We will use this as momentum, and will keep working towards our goal of reaching the super-regional tournament.”

Freshman Kenaida Mills (Califon, NJ) logged rounds of 83 and 82 for a total score of 165, finishing tied for ninth in her first collegiate tournament. Leah Baughman (Zanesville, OH) recorded a 173, finishing in 18th place. Karly Morell (Cleveland, OH) carded a 184 as an individual player.

Wheeling Jesuit came out firing on day two of the tournament, recording a score of 313 to extend its four-stroke day one lead to the final 20-stroke difference. WJU shot a 321 team total on Sunday.

Wheeling Jesuit is a a private, coeducational Roman Catholic university, NCAA Division II school, located in Morgantown, WV.
