Truman State's Nicolle Barmettler ties for 16th at the NCAA East Super Golf Regional
Arguably the most decorated player in the history of Truman State University women's golf finished up her illustrious career on Wednesday afternoon in the NCAA East Super Regional. Competing in the event for the second time in three years, Nicolle Barmettler finished in a tie for 16th out of 66 competitors with a three-day score of 230 (76-77-77) or +14.
"This week presented a really great opportunity to play against some tough competition," said Barmettler. "Putts weren't really falling all week and I missed a few too many greens, so I wish I could have finished a little stronger, but overall, I'm happy with how I ended the season. It was a tricky course with tough pin placements and windy conditions for the second and third rounds. I feel good about how I battled against the course and conditions while staying positive the whole time."
GLVC champion and Player of the Year, Pilar Echeverria, of Indianapolis took home medalist honors while the Greyhounds won the 12-team event ahead of Grand Valley State in second and Missouri-St. Louis in third. The three individuals moving on to the the NCAA Championships are Camden Morrison of Franklin Pierce (tied for fith), Makenzie Torres of Findlay (tied for seventh) and Krystal Hu of Ashland (10th).
Back to Barmettler, that decorated history includes three tournament titles, 19 finishes in the top five, 35 placings in the top 20, 48 rounds under 80, and a career stroke average of 78.5 with 6,283 strokes through 80 rounds. In her four years at Truman, Barmettler has competed in a total of 38 events and was among the top-five finishers for half of them.
