With only 18 more holes to go in the MAAC Championships, the Siena women’s golf’s streak of 12-straight MAAC Championships looks like it will end. Siena is currently 33 strokes behind tournament leader, Butler, and nine strokes behind second place Boston University.
As a team, Siena improved four shots from their Friday performance. Victoria Nguyen continues to lead the squad, shooting a team best +7 on Saturday. Last year’s tournament individual champion had one birdie, which came in a par-three hole. She current sits in fifth place.
Freshman Valerie Wijaya has also played well, matching her Friday score and goes into the final round in sixth. Wijaya is currently the top ranked first-year player in the tournament.
Butler University, who won two consecutive Horizon League championships before joining the MAAC this year continues to lead the way. Jenna Peters of the Bulldogs is tied for the individual lead with Kristyna Pavlickova of Boston University at four-over-par.
Siena had led every round of every MAAC tournament since 2003, a streak of 28-straight rounds. That streak has ended, and the Saints will try not to have another streak end as they play in the final round starting tomorrow.
