LAWRENCE, Kan. – The OU women’s golf team competed at the Ottawa Invitational on Monday, Sept. 11 and Tuesday, Sept. 12 at the Eagle Bend Golf Course. The Braves finished seventh in the tournament with a two round score of 744. OU shot 373 in round one and 371 in round two.

“Our women’s team is really not too far off,” said OU head women’s golf coach Wendell Smith. “Although a first glance at our team score shows that we struggled, I see a ton of potential.”

Britanie Wacoche (Cherokee Nation) led the Braves with a two round total of 178. She shot a 93 in round one and an 85 in round two, placing 20th. “Britanie found her groove in the second round and I know each of our girls are capable of shooting in the 80s very soon,” said Smith.

Hope Tsosie (Navajo) placed 24th, finishing with a 92 in round one and a 90 in round two (182). Breana Lowry, shot a two round score of 191 (93, 98), tying for 30th.

    Britanie was an all conference golfer her sophomore year (2015)and took a year off to concentrate on her major which is Exercise science and is looking to pursue a career in Occupational Therapy. She has been on the Dean’s Honor Roll every semester during her college career. Hope was an all conference golfer her Junior year (2016)and they both were huge contributor’s in winning Ottawa Universities first ever conference championship (KCAC)in school history in 2015 and qualifying for NAIA National Tournament. There’s not too many Native young ladies in college playing the game and they often get asked if they’re sisters so when Hope’s dad can’t make it we’re her adopted Native golf parents lol everyone knows them Natives all look alike. This was Britanie’s first college golf tournament in a year and a half and the whole family is excited and glad to be back to cheering them both on and are SO PROUD!!! of both of these AWESOME young Native ladies.
