The Missouri Valley Conference’s best golfers met at the Greenbriar Hills Country Club in St. Louis, Mo. this week to compete in the MVC tournament to close out their 2022 season. The UNI team had placed second at the last three editions of this tournament and were looking for an opportunity to finally possess the coveted championship. UNI also placed fourth in the conference’s preseason poll and wanted to exceed expectations. 

Senior Hannah Bermel had an exceptional tournament for the Panthers. She led the competition on the first day with a 73 and went into the third day in second place with a score of 76 on the second day. Bermel shot a score of 83 on the final day of the tournament to tie for 12th place overall and a score of 232 (or +19). Bermel was awarded her fourth First Team MVC all-conference honors, making her the first female golfer in school history to achieve this feat. 

UNI’s Allison Nuss finished the tournament in a tie for 21st place. She shot a 79 on the first day followed by 80s on the next two days to give her an overall score of 239(or +26). Fellow UNI golfers Madison Humke finished with a 239, Anna Jensen scored a 256 and Lily Bredemeier scored a 260. These final scores gave them places 42, 43 and 44 respectively. 

This gave the UNI women’s golf team a total team score of 970 or +118. This Panthers team finished the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament in ninth place with a solid performance from the golfers.
