JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Sept. 22, 2015) – ETSU women’s golf finished their final day at the Lady Paladin on Tuesday by carding a 308. The team competed with a difficult field that consisted of Missouri, Furman, New Mexico, Clemson, Wake Forest, and North Carolina.
The Bucs finished in ninth place out of a 17-team tournament at the Furman University Golf Course. Missouri took home the top price of the tournament as they shot seven over par in the three-day tournament. #32 Furman placed second in the Lady Paladin as the team finished with a total score of 879 in the tournament. Highly ranked Wake Forest placed just several spots above ETSU on the final day.
“We competed against some big teams this weekend and were close to passing a couple. We beat a couple schools that were ranked higher than us and still have not had our best days on the golf course,” said head coach Stefanie Shelton.
East Tennessee State finished in the middle of the pack in ninth with an overall score of 914. Hee Ying Loy (Taman Sri Kuali Baru, Kulaijaya, Malaysia) finished the best on the team by shooting just 10 over par and finished tied for 35th place. Rachel Pollock (Guelph, Ontario, Canada) was just four strokes away from her teammate as Pollock finished tied for 47th.
Vivienne Chin (Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia) made a strong push on her last day as she moved up to several places individually. She shot a 74 in the third round, which is two strokes over par.
“It’s very exciting to know that there is so much still in this team, and we look forward to more days competing against top schools,” said Shelton.
