Loyola arranged for Drake blue ribbons to be passed out to the entire field as well. The love and support we’ve felt in this difficult time has been incredible.The Bulldogs recorded a score of 317 and are 10 strokes back from fourth place and host Loyola (307). Two-time defending champion Wichita State leads the 10-team field with a 297 and holds a two-stroke advantage over second place Bradley (299).Sophomore Madison Glennie fired a three-over par 75 to lead the team and is tied for ninth place. Freshmen Sophie Hill and Adrianna Elliott each carded an 80 and are tied for 32nd place. Sophomore Brooke Miller registered an 82, while senior Katie Clausen rounded out the team’s day with an 87.The second round of the 54-hole tournament gets back underway at 8:30 a.m. on Monday.   Print Friendly Versionlast_img
