If the start of Amy Anderson’s sophomore season at North Dakota State seems familiar, it’s because the former U.S. Girls’ Junior champion is doing exactly what she did at the beginning of her freshman campaign: Blowing away the competition.
Anderson is yet undefeated in the 2010-11 season, winning her second consecutive title Sunday at the Hawkeye Intercollegiate with her 2-under 214 total (74-70-70). Anderson posted a school-record 144 earlier this week to defend her title at the Chip-N-Club Invitational. With the Hawkeye win, Anderson, who ended her freshman season ranked No. 98 in Golfweek’s College Rankings, earned her seventh individual title in 13 collegiate events.
In the team competition, host Iowa walked away with the championship after shooting 62-over 926. The Hawkeyes took an early lead with a 13-over 301 in Round 1, and remained firmly atop the leaderboard even as inclement weather plagued the tournament. It’s the first win for the Hawkeyes since 2006.
Ball State finished second at 68-over 932 while North Dakota State was third at 75-over 939.
Ball State senior Brittany Kelly finished second to Anderson in the individual race after posting 4-over 220. Iowa claimed the next two finishers in sophomore Kristi Cardwell (third, 11-over 227) and junior Chelsea Harris (fourth, 14-over 230). Ball State junior Katie Windlan rounded out the top 5 at 15-over 231.
