Women's Golf Opens Season at Boilermaker Classic

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. –  Rutgers women’s golf opens the 2023-24 this season on Monday at the Boilermaker Classic in West Lafayette, hosted by Purdue. 

The Scarlet Knights will get underway with rounds one and two on Monday morning for a 9 a.m. shotgun start. The third and final round is set for Tuesday with a 9 a.m. shotgun start. 

The event will take place at the Ohio State Scarlet Golf Course and feature 36 holes of play on Saturday and then the final 18 holes on Sunday.

Rutgers will enter the tournament with three returners and a pair of newcomers in the field, with Cathi Graf, Lorena Rossettin, Rikke Nordvik, Leigha Devine and Lucrezia Rossettin set for action. 

“It’s great to have the team together on campus again,” Nordvik said of the new season. “Everyone worked hard this summer and we’re all excited to get the season started this week at Purdue. The field is strong and we feel confident that we can be competitive out there.”

Season Outlook

Head coach Kari Williams and the team had a historic 2022-23 season and look to keep the momentum rolling in the new campaign. RU is coming off a season that saw the program win the team title at the Rocket Classic, post the third-lowest scoring average in team history (300.10), the lowest 54-hole total in team history at the Westbrook Invitational (3-under 861) and set program records with 293 birdies and a 4.2806 scoring average on par fours. 

Individually, Leigha Devine (Badger Invitational) and Rikke Nordvik (Rocket Classic) each won individual titles. Devine’s score at the Badger Invitational also set an event record. Devine set single-season records for scoring average (+1.67), birdies (86), par-5 scoring (4.9083). She also set the RU record for career rounds of par or better with 18.
