JAMESTOWN – The University of Jamestown hosted the annual UJ Fall Invite from Monday, Sept.12-Tuesday, Sept. 13, at the Jamestown Country Club. The Jimmies were split into three different teams in the five-team tournament.

For the first time in the 2022-23 season, both Jimmies teams won a tournament as the Jimmies men’s orange team won the men’s side with a score of 50-over par, and a total score of 914, 44 strokes ahead of second play Dickinson State University’s blue team.

“I thought it went really well,” Jimmies head coach Zach Hale said. “This was our first time doing a 36-18 format, that’s what our conference championship has been changed to now. So, it was a good wake-up call for everybody on what they can expect come spring from the conference championships.”

The highest finishing of the Jimmies men’s team was the orange team who finished 50-over par with a total score of 914. The highest finishing of the Jimmies women’s team was the women’s orange team who finished 182 over par with a total score of 1,046.

The highest Jimmies men’s individual finisher was Jackson Worner who finished with a score of six-over par and a total score of 222. Worner was paced by a score of 69 in the first round, which is his lowest career round score.

“I practiced quite a bit over the summer and it’s finally starting to show off,” Worner said. “All my teammates pushing me in and out every day, holding me accountable to my actions, putting in the work in the gym and the golf course, it’s really starting to pay off and my teammates have been a big part of it.”

During his career, Sedivic has three first-place finishes, all in the last three events.

The Jimmies men had the top four finishers as Gehrig Geiss finished one stroke behind Worner in second at seven over par with a 223 score, while Logan Douglas finished in third with a score of 18 over par with a score of 233. The Jimmies’ Benjamin Schaefer finished in a tie for fourth with a score of 18-over part with a total score of 234.

The Jimmies women’s team had four top five finishers as Jamestown native, Kyra Vogel finished at 43-over par with a total score of 259, to finish second. Two strokes behind Vogel was Faith Justesen with a score of 45-over par, followed by Teagan Fee at 47-over par and Jayme Carlson at 49-over par. Vogel’s lowest round was her first round in which she had a score of 84, which is her second consecutive tournament shooting 84 in a round.

Vogel also gave credit for her performance to the support system that she has around her.

“I would say support from family, coaches, teammates, and being confident in myself and my swing,” Vogel said.

The Jimmies men are back in action on Monday, Sept. 19, when they take part in the Northwest Iowa Invitational. The Jimmies women are back in action on Saturday, Sept. 24, when they take part in the Southwest Minnesota State Mustang Invite. The times for both events has yet to be announced.
