Illinois women’s golf made history Sunday, claiming its first Big Ten championship in program history.
Led by senior Crystal Wang (9-under 62 in the final round, and -12 for the tournament), Illinois won at Fox Chapel Golf Club in Pittsburgh.
Incredibly, Wang was the ONLY golfer in the field to finish under par. Remarkable stuff.
As a team, Illinois finished the tournament +13, which was three strokes ahead of second-place Northwestern.
We all know what Mike Small’s program has done over the past decade, it’s time to put some respect on Renee Sloan and her team, too.
