Seymour native earns medalist honors

The University of Indianapolis women’s golf team captured the Great Lakes Valley Conference championship title Sunday, securing a sixth consecutive conference crown in the sport.

After battling wet and rainy conditions all weekend, all five Greyhounds finished in the top five, with junior Paxton DeHaven of Seymour earning individual medalist honors.

The event, which was shortened from 54 to 36 holes due to the rain, was conducted Friday through Sunday at Annbriar Golf Course in Waterloo, Illinois.

The Greyhounds fired back-to-back team scores of 292, setting the record for lowest 36-hole total at the conference tournament. Runner-up Missouri-St. Louis (297-296) finished nine strokes back, well ahead of third-place Illinois Springfield (310-318).

DeHaven (72-72) finished at even par for the tournament despite the wet conditions. She collected her second straight top-three result at the league tournament and first conference medal.

DeHaven became the sixth Greyhounds golfer to win the league tournament, joining teammates Katharina Keilich and Kylie Raines, who shared the medal last year.
