GREENVILLE, S.C. (Sept, 22, 2014) – Freshman Dominika Czudkova (Cesky Tesin, Czech Republic) finished with a Top 20 effort, but the ETSU women’s golf team dropped off the pace following second round play in the Lady Paladin Invitational Monday at the Furman Golf Club.
While Czudkova carded a round of 4-over-par 76 to tie for 20th, the Buccaneers struggled on the day and posted a score of 310 to drop from a tie for eighth to 12th place on the team leaderboard. Host Furman continues to lead the event, holding a five-stroke advantage over Texas Tech and Wake Forest.
“The team is learning every day they step on the golf course and today was full of lessons,” said ETSU head coach Stefanie Shelton. “We look forward to the day tomorrow and a chance to get back on the course.”
While Furman holds sole possession of first place in the team competition, they also have the top spot individually, as the Paladins’ Taylor Totland stands at 6-under-par 138 and leads Wake Forest’s Sierra Sims and Yale’s Jennifer Peng by one strokes.
Though Czudkova is currently the Bucs’ highest individual performer after the second round, ETSU junior Vivienne Chin (Kota Kinabalu, Sabah Malaysia) actually posted the best individual round of the day with a 2-over-par 74 to move into a tie for 43rd. Meanwhile, sophomore Linda Dobele (Ogre, Latvia) was the only other ETSU player to finish in the Top 50, tying for 48th on the individual leaderboard.
