  • 2019-20 Shocker Women's Golf



    Meet the Wichita area’s top 10 high school girls golf players this fall

    2. MADISON SLAYTON - ANDOVER, SR.
    Slayton’s move to Andover from Trinity Academy will be one of the biggest storylines heading into the 2019 season. After earning All-Metro honors competing as an individual for the Trinity Knights alongside top rated Hanna Hawks, she joins the Wichita area’s top team. Slayton came in third in the Class 4A tournament last year and had a 75.2 average throughout the season.

      I am not expecting a lot out of the Lady Shockers golfers this season. The Shocks graduated there two best and most consistent players from last year as Laine Evans and Gavrilla Arya completed their eligibility. Sophomore Hana Mirnik is the Shocks top returning golfer. She played in all 9 tournaments last year a finished with a stroke average of 75.92. The Shocks have 2 seniors on this year's roster. Michelle Ledermann played in 7 of 9 events last year averaging 76.2 strokes per round and Anna Chickering played in all 9 events with a stroke average of 79.03. So. Chiara Arya played in 4 events as a freshman averaging 79.75 per round. As a team the Shocks finished 9th in the AAC Championships 1 storke ahead of last placy Cincinnati.

      Coach McCurdy has added 4 first year players to his roster and playing time is certainly up gor grabs. If 2 or 3 of these freshman prove good enough to make the 5-player team rotation that would be positive sign for the future.

      The Lady Shocks will play 4 tournaments this fall and 4 tournaments in the spring before heading to Florida for the AAC Championships on April 19th.

          Good looking swing and sounds like a very fine young lady.

        The Wichita State women's golf team opens the 2018-19 fall season with the Payne Stewart Memorial on Sept. 10-11, held at the Twin Oaks Country Club in Springfield, Mo.

        https://goshockers.com/news/2019/9/6...on-monday.aspx

        Live scoring will not be available for the tournament. It is being hosted by Missouri State.

        Sr. Michelle Ledermann (Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia), Sr. Anna Chickering (San Diego, CA), So. Hana Mirnik (Celje, Slovenia), Fr. Aufa Rachmadya (Jakarta, Indonesia) and Fr. Mar Vidal (Barcelona, Spain) will be on the team scorecard for the Shocks giving them a distinctly international flavor. Not sure which slots each golfer will fill.

        So. Chiara Arya (Jakarta, Indonesia), Fr. Valerie Routzong (Houston, TX) and Fr. Sarah Lawson (Olathe, KS) will compete in the tournament as individuals.

        The field at the Payne Stewart memorial features 12 teams. Two former Missouri Valley Conference foes, Creighton and host Missouri State, are featured, as well as UTEP, Arkansas State, Austin Peay, McNeese State, Oklahoma City, Oral Roberts, South Dakota, and UMKC. D-II Drury University is also in the field.

        The Shockers finished fourth at this event last year, with Mirnik finishing the highest of returning Shocker golfers at 12th.

        The Shocks finished 4th for the 2nd year in a row in the MSU/Payne Stewart Invitational recording a 42-over 894 collectively over 3 rounds. Last year the Shocks shot 891 in finsihing 4th.

        https://goshockers.com/news/2019/9/1...he-season.aspx

        Sr. Michelle Ledermann shot 75-73-71 = 219 (6-over) and tied for 4th on the indvidual board, Fr. Var Midal shot a decent 75-74-73 = 222 to tie for 10th place individually. I like that both ladies improved in each successive roungs. Unfortunately, the Shocks still seem to lack he depth they need to really compete for wins in these tournaments as Oral Roberts won relatvely easily at 21-over 873. MSU and UTEP tied for 2nd at 32-voer par 884.

        I was most disappointed in So. Hana Mirnik. Hana shot 220 (7-over) in this tournament last year but could only muster a 77-78-78 = 233 (20-over) this year.

        Fr. Aufa Rachmadya go of to a bad start shooting 81 in round one but she improved to 77 in round 2 and 73 in round 3. Hopefully, some of that slow start was due to 1st time in a college meet jitters.

        Perhaps Hana gets back on track and Aufa can steady her game at a reasonable level.
