Menlo College opened the season on Monday in the Sonoma State Invitational at Foxtail Golf Club. The Oaks had a few bright spots during the two-day event that concluded Tuesday, including the first career competition for freshman Julika Grosspietsch, who boasted the top finish for the Menlo squad, tying for 33rd (77-82--159). The Oaks were the lone NAIA team competing in the largely NCAA Division II field, finishing 11th overall.

The Erfurt, Germany resident shook off early nerves.

“The pin positions were kind of hard on day one but I handled this pretty well,” said Grosspietsch. “My chipping and putting were especially good and helped me to save some important pars. I’m looking forward to the next tournaments."

Senior Addison Hemming shot two rounds of 83 for 166, and a tie for 43rd place.

Hemming was happy with the start to her tournament and was particularly pleased with her play on par three’s in the first round.

“I had a great start to the season at Foxtail in Sonoma,” said Hemming. “The highlight of my first round was the par 3’s. I was able to get green in regulation for all four of them and even birdied hole number six.”

Junior transfer Taylor Robinson played in her first tournament as an Oak and finished strong in the second round. Robinson shot 96 in on day one but turned things around with an 11-stroke improvement in day two for an 85.

Sophomore Alexandra Lundqvist had a similar story for the tournament, shooting 96 on day one and following that up with an 86 on day two.

Host Sonoma State won the tournament with a 601. Academy of Art was second with Concordia (Ore.) rounding out the top three.

The Oaks look to build off this experience as they host an event next weekend at Del Monte Golf Course in Monterey.
