Mount Union will host the 2017 Ohio Athletic Conference Women's Golf Championships Friday-Sunday, April 21-23 at River Greens Golf Course in West Lafayette, Ohio.

Mount Union won the 2016 OAC Championship and it was the Puple Raiders first conference title since 2002.

Erica Mawhorr of Mount Union won Medalist honors as a freshman a year ago with a 54-hole score of 249 (81-86-82).

Placing second one-shot behind Mawhorr a year ago was her teammate - Morgan Rector and both of them along with entire Mount Union lineup from a year ago return for this year's championship.

Four golfers are back from an Otterbein team that placed second last year and three of those golfers - Hannah Myers, Abby Grospitch and Liz Haack - were all-conference selections.

Ohio Northern placed third last year and brings back its two All-OAC golfers that both tied for fifth overall a year ago in Ariana Tomasula and Hannah Whisler.

Katie Lease, who finished seventh overall a year ago to get All-OAC honors, leads a Capital team that was fourth last year.

The top-14 finishers receive All-OAC honors.
