UMSL Women’s Golf, Capesius Earn Runner-Up Finishes at GLVC Championships


Junior Alexa Capesius shot a career-low 145 en route to earning runner-up honors at the GLVC Championships, held Friday-Sunday.


Capesius turned in rounds of 72 and 73, finishing one stroke behind champion Paxton DeHaven of Indianapolis, while helping the Tritons to a second place finish as a team with a score of 593 (297-296), which equals the third-best 36-hole total in program history.
