Women's Golf Finishes In 11th Place At Wildcat Invitational
Oct. 1, 2006
LEXINGTON, KY. - The East Carolina women's golf team concluded its first tournament of the 2006-07 season with an 11th place finish at the Wildcat Fall Invitational at the University Club's Big Blue Course.
The Pirates (4-10-0) moved up two spots from yesterday carding a final round score of 318 to finish with a 54-hole score of 977.
Playing conditions were perfect for the final round, a welcomed change from yesterday's miserable winds and rain. Memphis used a final day comeback to edge Augusta State for the tournament team crown.
Heading into the final day of action, Louisville held a one-stroke advantage over Memphis and N.C. State, but the Tigers put together an impressive 298 third round to take home the win. Augusta State began the day five shots off the lead and enjoyed a great final round to edge the Wolfpack for second place. N.C. State finished in third, while Louisville and Birmingham Southern rounded out the top-five.
Mississippi State's Amanda Mathis claimed the individual crown by a single stroke a nine-over-par 225. Mathis earned a second place finish in last season's tournament. She edged Louisville's Adrienne White and N.C. State's Lauren Doughtie who tied for second place.
For the Pirates, freshman Ana Maria Puche shot a final round seven-over par to finish tied for 33nd (85-76-79=240). Lene Krog claimed a share of 50th place, while Abby Bools tied for 55th place, Jessica Hauser tied for 58th and freshman Kristin Billings was 75th.
ECU will be back in action Oct. 20 when they play host to the Lady Pirate Invitational at Bradford Creek.
