Tournament Notes
This collegiate women's golf championship is named for Alexa Stirling (1897-1977), an American-Canadian amateur golfer and member of the Atlanta Athletic Club. She won the US Women's Amateur in 1916, 1919 & 1920, the Canadian Women's Amateur in 1920 & 1930 and has spots in the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame, Georgia Golf Hall of Fame and Georgia Sports Hall of Fame.
 
Harper Among the Best in the Nation
Erin Harper has continued to prove that she is among the top golfers in the country. She qualified for the NCAA Madison Regional last year as a junior and then advanced on to the NCAA Championships in Stillwater, Oklahoma as well. Most recently, she qualified to Stage II of LPGA Q-School in Florida. Harper has finished outside of the Top 30 in tournament play just once in her last 18 tournaments.
 
Bellville's Back
Graduate transfer Kari Bellville recorded her best individual finish in over three years at the Illini Invite at Medinah after carding rounds of 69-72-75 earned her a tie for 25th. It was her best finish since a T4 showing at the Chip-N Club Invite on Oct. 6, 2015 while competing for Notre Dame. And the opening round 69 at Medinah was just one stroke shy of matching her career best round. Her scoring average of 75.50 so far this season is 1.30 strokes better than her previous single-season best of 76.80 set back in 2015-16.
 
Parsons is Producing
Sophomore Mary Parsons is getting back into the swing of things after a difficult start to the 2018-19 season. She finished T49 at the Mary Fossum Invitational in her first appearance of the season. But has followed that up with a runner-up showing at the Butler Fall Invitational and then rebounded with a T20 finish at Medinah the last time out. As a freshman, she led the Hoosiers with a scoring average of 73.31

Indiana got off to a rocky start in round one but rebounded in round two to finish 16th out of 19 teams. Individually, Erin Harper paced the Hoosiers at 2-under par, which was good for a tie for 22nd. Sophomore Angela Aung and freshman Alexis Miestowski both tied for 48th at 4-over par.
