Rachael Rier’s Davenport University women’s golf team finished 2nd and set individual and team records at the Lawrence Tech Heritage Hill Invitational in Shepherdsville, Kentucky.

The team established 18-hole and 36-hole records and freshman Hannah Meloche tied the 18-hole individual record twice and set a new 36-hole record.

Meloche shot one-under-par 71s both days to win the individual crown at the event.
She also notched a hole-in-one on hole 11 during round two, which is only the second ace in program history.

Rier, from Hanover, Ontario, shot rounds of 90-80 and finished 18th. She is in her second year at Davenport, which is located in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The event, held March 23-24 at Heritage Hills Golf Club, was won by Indiana Tech University with a 599 total.

Davenport was 5 strokes behind with a team total of 604.
