Chardon, Ohio - The Youngstown State women's golf team earned its second victory of the season by winning the Sand Ridge Shootout at Sand Ridge Golf Club on Friday. The Penguins were led by Megan Creager and Katlyn Shutt, who each tied for first place individually.

YSU finished first as a team with a score of 305 on a beautiful afternoon in the greater Cleveland area. The Penguins were one of four teams competing in the one-day event and finished four strokes ahead of Cleveland State.

There was a three-way tie for medalist honors as Creager, Shutt and Nichole Cox of Bowling Green each shot 74 over 18 holes on the par-72 course.

Creager's 74 is the lowest single-round score of her career. She also finished atop the leaderboard for the first time in her career while Shutt previously earned medalist honors at the Horizon League Championships last season. Creager now has two top-10 finishes this season and six in the top 25.

Shutt's 74 is her lowest single-round score of the season thus far. She was competing in just her fourth event of the season after missing the team's entire fall slate due to injury. She was YSU's top finisher last week at the Dolores Black Falcon Invitational.

Courtney Shutt finished only one stroke back of the medalists with a 75 to earn her third top-10 finish of the season.

Tori Utrup turned in an 82 to finish 13th while Kara Raines was tied for 16th with an 86. The two freshmen each posted their second-best finishes of the season. 

Youngstown State will now travel to Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla. to compete in the Horizon League Championships at Mission Inn Resort April 22-24. The Penguins have captured three league titles (2003, 2009, 2015) and placed second as a team last season.
