TIFFIN—The Ohio Northern women's golf team shattered the school's 36-hole record by a full 10 strokes en route to a victory at the Heidelberg Fall Invitational on Friday and Saturday, September 16-17, at  Mohawk Golf & Country Club.

The Polar Bears (21-1 overall) fired a 314-315—629 to break the previous record of 639 to win the 8-team tournament by 17 strokes.

Sophomore Rhianna Firmstone (Moon Township, Pa./Moon Area) won Medalist honors for the first time in her career with a 74-79—153 on the 5921-yard, par-72 course to finish first by three strokes in the 60-women field.

Junior Grace Honigford was in a three-way tie for second place three shots back with a 79-77—156.

Sophomore Amelia Burger (Centerville) and freshman Marisa Alfes (Bellbrook) tied for 8th with 160s.

Northern tied the 18-hole record in Friday's first round with a 314, which matched the score ONU posted at the Capital Classic in September 2021.

Wittenberg finished second with a 323-323—649, Wooster was third with a 315-339—654 and Tiffin was fourth with a 340-356—696.
