Women’s Golf Finishes Fourth at Dan Quayle Collegiate Classic
CLAYTON, Ind. (CentreColonels.com) – After sitting in eighth place after the first day of competition at the Dan Quayle Collegiate Classic at Deer Creek G.C., the Centre women's golf team made the most of their final 18 holes, climbing to a fourth place finish.
The Colonels were one of the rare teams in the middle of the leaderboard to perform better on Sunday than they did on Saturday, firing a combined team score of 320 to pass Lewis & Clark, Washington & Lee, William Penn and Illinois Wesleyan to move into fourth place. Indiana Tech won the tournament, followed by Wittenberg and host school DePauw.
Individually, the low scorer of the day for the Colonels was freshman Rachel Fine (Lexington, Ky.), who improved upon her Saturday score by five strokes to record a score of 78 and a two-day score of 161 to land in a tie for 19th place overall.
The most consistent player for the Colonels throughout the tournament was junior Jill Edgington (Edgewood, Ky.), who followed up Saturday's score of 77 with a score of 79 on Sunday, good enough for a tie for tenth place and a spot on the Dan Quayle Collegiate Classic All-Tournament squad.
The most notable moment of the day and maybe the entire tournament belonged to junior Alison Miller (Lexington, Ky.), who recorded a hole in one on the par-3 third hole at Deer Creek, marking the first ace in tournament play in Centre women's golf history. Miller improved from her Saturday round by four shots with a score of 80.
The Centre women's golf team will return to action on Sept. 25-26 as they travel to Montgomery, Ala. for the Huntingdon Fall Invite.
