PERU, Ind. – The Taylor women's golf team shaved 18 shots off its first round score to fire a team score of 414 in the final round of the first annual Crossroads League Championship at Rock Hallow Golf Course.

Four out of five Trojans improved on their first-round scores, led by freshmen Elaina Mellott's 94 and Erin Erickson's 108 while Meagan Devries added a 104, Jenna Fahlen carded a 108, and Hope Knowling shot 122 to round out the TU scoring.

"I can't thank each of these girls enough for their effort this season," Taylor coach Julie Flores said. "Being a first-year program certainly presents challenges but each of these ladies worked hard to help us get our program started and this year is really just a starting point."

Bethel, ranked 15th in the latest NAIA Coaches' Top-25 Poll, claimed the first-ever Crossroads League tournament title with a two-day total of 636. Marian finished second while Saint Francis finished third. Taylor finished sixth, 18 shots behind Mount Vernon Nazarene, in the six-team field.
