Two Hopkins High School grads led the Illinois Wesleyan University women’s golf team to its 11th-straight College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin women's golf championship this weekend.
Senior Rose Kelly, an environmental studies major from Hopkins, was the individual tourney medalist—placing first with 249 (85-80-84) in the three-day tournament, which took place Thursday through Saturday at Meadowbrook Country Club in Racine, WI.
Senior Brittany Levens, an accounting major from Golden Valley, placed second with 253 (83-85-85).
Kelly, Levens and the four other Illinois Wesleyan golfers who placed in the top 10 also earned all-conference recognition.
Overall, the team shot a 1018, 80 strokes better than runner-up Carthage. The win qualifies the team for its ninth-straight NCAA Division III Women's Golf Championships, to be played May 14-17 at Baytowne Golf Club in Destin, FL.
