April 2, 2006

CHICAGO - Four Loyola University Chicago golfers placed among the top six individual performers to lead the Ramblers to the title at the rain-shortened St. Francis Spring Invitational. Today's round was cancelled due to inclement weather. Loyola posted a team score of 319 yesterday to finish 17 strokes ahead of second-place Lewis (336) in the nine-team field.

Freshman Kaitlin Kearney earned medalist honors with a three-over-par 75, which ties her career best. Sophomore Michelle Puch followed closely with an 80 to finish second, while Rachael Sinnen and Katelyn Gibbons each tied for third with an 82. With identical rounds of 84, Marissa Capriola and Sarah VanVooren rounded out the Rambler lineup, finishing tied for 12th.

Loyola returns to action next week when it hosts the Loyola Invitational, April 10-11 at Winnetka Golf Club.
