TeamWG_2014A trio of top-three finishes highlighted a strong fall  season for the Bulldog women’s golf team, as Truman got strong play across the board in four tournaments this September and October.

After opening the season with a sixth-place finish at the William Jewell Fall Tune-Up, the Bulldogs went for third at both Millikin (Ill.) and Nebraska Wesleyan before capping the season with a second-place finish at the Illinois Springfield Salisbury Challenge. Led by a pair of Barmettlers, (Nicolle, freshman; Kim, junior), the Bulldogs recorded 11 total top-15 finishes as Riley Keltner and Courtney Cisler completed a quartet that competed in all seven rounds.

The Bulldogs, under the direction of head coach Clint Fitzpatrick, will pick back up with action this spring, which includes the first Sam Lesseig Invitational–to be held April 19-20 at the Kirksville Country Club.


The Truman golf team finished 14th in its first season of Great Lakes Valley Conference action and will return its entire squad for 2014-15, beginning this fall.

The entire Truman family experienced tragic loss at the outset of its fall 2014 season, as longtime head coach and faculty member Sam Lesseig suddenly passed away. Lesseig served as the only head coach in the 28-year history of the Truman women’s golf team and was also the department’s interim athletics director during the 1988-89 school year.

On the links, the Truman women were led by junior Courtney Cisler, who was the top Bulldog finisher in eight of the team’s 10 events this season.

Clint Fitzpatrick took over coaching duties in January 2014 and will return this fall with competition beginning in September.
