"I thought overall we played pretty well," said head coach Chris Winkel. "It is still early in the year for our women's team it being only our second event of the spring. There were some good signs that our team performance this spring wil continue to improve over last fall. Individually Kim Nelson played very well finishing  just outside the top ten with one of the strongest tournament fields in the country.  Maria Mantilla also played well and I look for her to have a strong remainder of the spring season," added Winkel.

The Vikings will be back on the course April 9-11 as Baker University hosts a tournament at Eagle Bend Golf Club in Lawrence, Kansas. Check back with for continued women's golf coverage and follow the Vikings on social media for the most current information.
