For the second straight event, a St. Ambrose golfer took second overall to lead the Bees to a runner-up team finish.

Coming on the heels of Emily Jean's second-place showing at the Viterbo Invitational last Monday, it was Abigail Scheidecker's turn this week.

The freshman closed with a final-round 85 to end the two-day Clarke Fall Invitational with a 172, four shots behind the individual medalist but three shots ahead of the third-place finisher. 

Jean gave the Bees a pair of top-five finishers. She matched Scheidecker with a first-round 87 before slipping to a closing 90 to end in a tie for fourth place with a 177.

The two helped St. Ambrose to second place in the tournament played at the Eagle Ridge Resort North Course in Galena, Ill. SAU led the tournament by a single shot after firing a 359 Sunday. But Wis.-Platteville overtook the Bees with a 358 Monday to win the team title with a 718. St. Ambrose finished second among the four teams with a 729.

Fellow freshmen Elyse Kalb and Becki Meils ended in a tie for 14th place individually. Kalb had rounds of 94 and 98 and Meils put together rounds of 91 and 101 for their matching 192s.

Alyson Scheidecker shot a 193 (96-97) for the Bees.

Playing as an individual, Alison Seibel carded a 207 (102-105).

Viterbo's Danielle Ducklow took home medalist honors with a 168 (87-81).

SAU will next compete in the Statesmen Fall Classic, Oct. 9-10, at the Edmundson Golf Course in Oskaloosa, Iowa.
