HUNTLEY, Ill. –A school record 296 on the final day of play provided the impetus for the Brown women's golf team to win the 26th Annual Northern Illinois Huskie Golf Classic by three shots at par-72 Whisper Creek Golf Club.

The Bears trailed by 19 shots coming into the final day of play, but made that up with a school record 611 on Monday.  Brown won the team title by three shots over host Northern Illinois (614), with all five scores on the final day from 73-75.  Chicago State placed third (621) followed by Western Illinois (622), Loyola (622), SIU Edwardsville (634), Gustavus Adolphus (642), North Dakota State (649), Creighton (656), So.

"This was probably one of the most exciting Huskie Classic of the 26 year history," Huskie head coach Pam Tyska said. "There were three different school records broken."

Brown junior Carly Arison captured medalist honors at the Huskie Classic, shooting 75-75—150 to capture the individual title in the 74-player field.
