CARMEL, Ind. – The IUPUI women’s golf team will cap the regular season this week when the Jaguars host the Lady Jaguar Invitational at Plum Creek in Carmel. Head coach Jamie Broce‘s team is coming off an impressive win at NKU’s The Julie to close the month of March and are making final preparations for the upcoming Horizon League Championships. 

The Jags lineup is keyed by Amelie Svejda, who has earned top-10 finishes in each of her three entries and boasts a 74.38 scoring average. She’s defeated 94 percent of her opponents this season and boasts a streak of nine straight top-10 finishes. 

Behind her, freshman Shelby Busker has been a rock with a 76.63 scoring average in eight rounds while Kara Blair has a 76.75 stroke average for the year. Blair is coming off her fourth career top-10 finish at Northern Kentucky. Freshman Madeleine Pape has also become a fixture in the IUPUI lineup with a 78.00 stroke average over eight rounds this season.
