As flood waters consume the Jamestown Country Club, Jamestown College moved their 2 day event to the Crossroads Golf Club in Carrington. The weather was good and the course was in great shape. Valley City's Ashley Hinrichs started out slow and finished the first round with a score of 94. That was good enough for 13th place after day one. As the weather chilled and became windy Ashley began to climb the leaderboard. After shooting the best round of the day (79), Ashley moved into a tie for 4th place. 'What a great turnaround today, she really bounced back from a somewhat disappointing first day for her,' said Bomstad. 'Overall what a super meet for Ashley, she continues to get better and better every day,' Bomstad stated. Lacey Nelson is in the same conversation. She shot a season best on day 2 of the event. 'Lacey is starting to get comfortable playing college golf. It takes some time to get used to the yardage and how to compete at this level. She is getting better every day as well and it is fun to see that as a coach, 'said Bomstad. While things seem to be getting better for each player on the course, the team took a blow this week when they found out that senior Mandi Bindas (Oxbow, ND) will miss the rest of the fall season and possibly the spring as she has had surgery to repair her knee. 'It is hard to take, I just feel so bad for Mandi as she is a great player and even a greater person. I know she will be strong and get through this,' Bomstad stated. The Vikings women's golf team will be in action this Thursday when they travel to Morris, MN for the Cougar Invitational. The event will have a shotgun start at 1:00.
