Leighty earns All-Tournament honors at Triton Invitational

ST. LOUIS (WFIE) -University of Southern Indiana Women’s Golf wrapped up competition in the Triton Invitational, hosted by the University of Missouri-St. Louis, on Monday. Junior Abbey Leighty (Mt. Carmel, Illinois) earned herself a spot on the All-Tournament team, posting two rounds of 75 for an eight-over performance in the two-day event.

USI encountered a rocky start on Sunday, as three of the six Screaming Eagles in the event had their first round disqualified, which eventually led to a team finish of 17th among the 19 teams. Leighty’s 75 in the first round left her T-3rd.

While Leighty stayed steady on Monday, sophomore Brittany Skinner (Evansville, Indiana) picked up five strokes from her Sunday round for 84 in the second day. Leighty finished T-4th in the Triton Invitational while Skinner finished T-40th among 92 players.

USI Women’s Golf has just under three weeks to prepare for the Great Lakes Valley Conference championship at the Panther Creek Country Club in Springfield, Illinois, starting on April 26.
