Vorreyer, UIS women shoot for golf Super Regional

The University of Illinois Springfield women’s golf team is in good position as it heads into the Great Lakes Valley Conference championships scheduled for Saturday and Sunday at Annbriar Golf Course in Waterloo.

The Prairie Stars are trying to earn a bid to an NCAA Division II Super Regional May 5-7 at Joliet Country Club.

“We are very close to it as a team,” UIS coach Frank Marsaglia said. “If we don’t, Abby Vorreyer has a real shot of making it as an individual.”

Vorreyer has won three tournaments this spring, including the UIS Spring Invitational at The Rail Golf Course on Sunday. Vorreyer broke her own 18-hole record in the first round with a 2-under par 70. She shot a 76 in the final round and broke another one of the records with a two-round score of 146 for a 10-stroke win.

Vorreyer also won the 140-player/24-team Perry Park Spring Fling in Kentucky last month.
