Buccaneer junior leader finishes tied for 21st at Reynolds Lake Oconee

GREENSBORO, Ga. (Feb. 23, 2020) – After leading the Buccaneers in all four tournaments during the fall campaign, ETSU women’s golf standout Tereza Melecka (Belcovice, Czech Republic) picked up right where she left off in the spring opener.  

Melecka, who carded a 1-under-par 71 in Sunday’s final round, finished tied for 21st at the Reynolds Lake Oconee Invitational from The Landing Course. For the tournament, Melecka posted a 54-hole score of 8-over-par 224 (78-75-71). The 50th-ranked World Amateur Golfer registered 13 pars, three birdies and two bogeys to finish on a positive note in the finale. Melecka played her final 31 holes of the tournament at two-under-par.

Auburn swept both the team and individual titles. The 22nd-ranked Tigers captured the team championship with a score of 8-under-par 856 (293-284-279) – 26 shots better than second-place Mercer and 37 strokes ahead of third-place East Carolina.

Megan Schofill entered the day two shots off the lead, but after posting her second straight 4-under 68, the Auburn Tiger earned medalist honors with a 54-hole score of 7-under-par 209 (73-68-68). East Carolina’s Dorthea finished runner-up at 5-udner-par 211 (71-69-71). 

ETSU’s Warda Amira Rawof (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) finished tied for 33rd (+13) and Kornbongkoat Sararat (Nongkhai, Thailand) – Saturday’s team leader – placed tied for 43rd (+18). 

As a team, ETSU moved up to finish 10th with a team score of 935. 

The Bucs return to action on Monday, March 9, when ETSU heads to North Carolina for the UNCW River Landing.
