Redshirt freshman Hannah Kochendoerfer opened her summer season by winning the first event of the Midwest Collegiate Amateur Series May 31 at the Toledo Country Club.
Kochendoerfer shot seven-over par 147, including an impressive one-over par 71 in her final 18 holes.“I’m so excited for Hannah,” two-time Mid-American Conference Coach of the Year Nicole Hollingsworth said. “She has worked extremely hard, and all of that work is starting to pay off.”
A Lambertville, Mich., native, Kochendoerfer birdied the first three holes of her second round and finished the front nine at four-under par 31. She also birdied the final hole of her round.
Kochendoerfer played in three tournaments for the Rockets in the recently completed 2015-16 campaign and posted an 86.3 stroke average.
