@CentreWGolf Takes Eighth at Washington University Spring Invite
ST. LOUIS (CentreColonels.com) – The Centre women's golf team, ranked 24th in the nation in the latest Golfstat rankings, improved on its Saturday score of 326 at the Washington University Spring Invite by eight shots to finish in eighth place overall mark one of the best turnarounds of the tournament on a day when most teams could not match their Saturday marks.
The Colonels shot a combined team score of 318 on Sunday at Forest Park G.C. to finish in eighth place with a two-day score of 644 and best Sewanee by two shots. Rhodes, Gustavus Adolphus and DePauw comprised the top three team finishers in order.
Individually, junior Alison Miller (Lexington, Ky.) was once again the low scorer for the Colonels. Miller, who shot 78 on Saturday, overcame four consecutive bogeys to open her Sunday round to shoot one under par on the back nine. Miller's round of 74 gave her a two-day total of 152 for the tournament to tie for ninth place overall.
Juniors Eliza Hudson (Mauckport, Ind.) and Madison Grant (Lexington, Ky.) each fired rounds of 81 for the Colonels on Sunday. For Hudson it was the second 81 in as many rounds as she led off with a birdie on the par 4 eighth hole. Grant also started on the eighth hole and started and finished solid, recording pars on holes 3-11.
Junior Jill Edgington (Edgewood, Ky.) posted a round of 82 for Centre on Sunday, highlighted by a consistent front nine that saw just three bogeys. Edgington joined Miller and Hudson in the top 40 overall on the leaderboard, while Grant landed in the top 50. Freshman Cameron Cahill (Lexington, Ky.) fired a round of 88, shaking off a pair of double bogeys late in her round and being the only Centre player to record a birdie on the par 3 third hole.
The WashU Invite marked the end of the regular season for the Centre women's golf team. The Colonels will have the next week off to prepare for the Southern Athletic Association Championships, beginning on Apr. 21 in Maumelle, Ark.
