WESTON, Fla. (Feb. 28, 2012) – Carding its best round of the event, the ETSU women’s golf team moved up two spots into a tie for seventh place on the leaderboard following third and final round play in the Sir Pizza Cards Challenge Tuesday afternoon at the Weston Hills Country Club.

The Bucs finished tied for seventh with Southern Miss, while N.C. State took home team honors. Individually, ETSU was led by freshman Gabriella Wahl (Heidenheim, Germany), who posted the team’s best round of the day at even-par 72, while junior Chloe Garner (Somerset West, South Africa) enjoyed the best tournament finish of any Buccaneer with a tie for 10th.

“This was a great tournament for Chloe and I was very proud of her,” said ETSU head coach Stefanie Shelton. “Gabriella had a solid round today and it was good to see Sian (Evans) back on the course. We need her out there.”

After having to withdraw from play during Monday afternoon’s second round do to an illness, sophomore Sian Evans (Gillingham, England) did in fact return to play in Tuesday’s third round. She posted a 3-over 75.

While Garner finished tied for 10th at 222 (76-72-74), Wahl posted a tie for 23rd at 227 (75-80-72). Other individual performances included a tie for 32nd by senior Mayte Vizcarrondo (Cadiz, Spain). N.C. State’s Brittany Marchand and Augusta James tied for the top spot at 6-under 210, with Marchand taking home the individual title in a playoff.

The Bucs will return to action on March 9 at the JMU Eagle Landing Invitational in Jacksonville, Fla. For more on ETSU women’s golf throughout the spring season, visit ETSUBucs.com and click on the women’s golf link.
