Quick Hits

The women's golf team placed in the top-five at its third-straight event, tying for second at the Cav Classic on April 10-11. Karissa Guthrie (4th), Haley Hewer (10th) and Caro Els (11th) cracked the top 15.

At the 2016 GLIAC Championship, their first in program history, the Wildcats took 10th. Guthrie tied for seventh, posting a three-round score of 230. That performance secured her a spot on the all-GLIAC honorable mention squad.

The men's golf team's last invitational was the Purgatory Regional on April 9-10. Northern Michigan finished 15th at the event, which was shortened to one round due to weather.

The Wildcats placed sixth at the 2016 GLIAC Championship. Northern Michigan, which shot a three-round 915, was paced by Owen Beyer (t-15th) and Emil Lundgren (t-21st). The Wildcats' finish was their best since the 1998-99 campaign, when they took third with a score of 917. 

The track & field placed first in an 11-team field at the St. Norbert College Twilight on April 13. Northern Michigan won 12 of the 20 events contested en route to its second team title of the 2017 outdoor season. Avadon James and Ine Mylle took first in two events while Kieren Becker and Michelle Juergen posted NCAA provisional marks to score their victories.

While her team was at the St. Norbert College Twilight, Kameron Burmeister traveled to Torrance, Calif. to race at the prestigious Mt. SAC Relays. She clocked 36:17.71, a school record and NCAA provisional mark, to finish ninth in the 10,000-meter run's open 'B' division field of 32.

The lacrosse team closed its nine-game road stand with a loss at Grand Valley State. Brianna Bangle made 13 saves; she now has posted at least 10 stops in five-straight games, topping out at a career-best 21 at Concordia-St. Paul on March 31.
