Bengals Break Individual and Team Records at Title IX Tournament

POCATELLO, Idaho – The Idaho State women's golf team had a massively successful outing at the Big Sky 54 for Title IX Tournament hosted at the Talon Cove Golf Course in Saratoga Springs Utah this weekend. The Bengals broke records as a team and Lexi Wilson set a new Idaho State women's golf team record for lowest round.

The Tournament was the Bengals opportunity to see their competition for the upcoming conference season with every Big Sky Conference school competing at the course.

"I'm so proud of how the team performed on a long difficult course," remarked Head Golf Coach Todd Loveland. "Breaking the ISU record for lowest team round twice in one tournament is extremely special shooting 296/294. I'm so excited for the possibilities of the season."

Bengal Golfer Lexi Wilson highlighted the tournament for the Bengals on day one. At the end of 18, Wilson posted a 'perfect' bogey-free round of 67.

The five-under par round score broke a record previously set in the 1996-97 season by Shari Humbke.

At the end of the tournament, Wilson turned in a final 54-hole score of 213, breaking a 20-year record set by by Arielle Cherry at the 2004 Big Sky Women's Golf championship.

The Bengals as a team performed very strong, scoring a 54-hole total 905 points, shattering the ISU women's team scoring record.

The previous record was set just last year at the Eagle Invitational and the Bengals breaking the record once again this year shows the upward trajectory that the Bengal Golf team is on.

The Bengals finished the tournament ranked 7th in total birdies with 33 made
