Jansone posted a score of even-par 216 for the three-round event, finishing in second place and just two strokes off the pace of individual champion Steffi Kirchmayr from
Most notably, the Bucs fired a team score of 889, marking the third time in six events this fall that the team has reached that low score, which ranks as the best three-round score in the program's history.
"This was the toughest field we've faced so far this year and to beat many of those teams is great for our players and our program," said ETSU head coach Stefanie Reynolds, whose team finished ahead of teams such as Louisville, Miami, Kansas State, Notre Dame, Iowa State, Indiana, Wisconsin and Maryland. "I can't say enough about Laura and the way she's playing right now. She's really finding her game and a 69 is just an incredible score.
"But what's made this a special fall season for us is the consistent team effort we've gotten, plus the girls we have are just so competitive. They are always working hard and pushing each other to be better."
Along with Jansone, junior Natalia Giraldo (Cali, Colombia) finished ninth at 4-over for the event, and fellow junior Maria Ringdahl (Oland, Sweden) finished tied for 13th at 8-over.
This event marks the end of the fall season for the ETSU women's golf team, an autumn campaign that ranks as the most successful in school history. Setting numerous team records including individual low round, team three-round score, and team single round score, the Bucs also saw their first individual championship and captured a team title at the Draper Valley Invitational. In all, the team would finish in the top four in four of six events, including a pair of second-place showings.
