NOTRE DAME, Ind. — The women’s golf team posted Notre Dame’s top team GPA for the 2018 fall semester with an impressive 3.652 mark.
“I can’t say enough about the effort this team, as a whole, puts into academics,” head coach Susan Holt said. “They are true student-athletes and will all do great things in the future after receiving their Notre Dame degrees.”
During the fall, the Fighting Irish competed in the Minnesota Invitational (Sept. 10-11), the Schooner Fall Classic (Sept. 28-30), the Bettie Lou Evans Invitational (Oct. 5-7) and the Landfall Tradition (Oct. 5-7). At the Bettie Lou Evans Invitational, senior Emma Albrecht tied for fourth and the team finished fifth. At the Schooner Fall Classic, Notre Dame shot a final-round six-under par 278.
- The Fighting Irish open the second semester at Louisville’s Moon Golf Invitational in Melbourne, Florida, at the Duran Golf Club on Feb. 18-19.

- Holt has piloted Notre Dame to four conference titles, 17 total tournament championships and the top 12 single-season stroke averages in the program’s record book, all while guiding Fighting Irish players to 15 medalist honors and 27 all-conference accolades as well as the first two All-America selections in Notre Dame women’s golf history.
