MT. PLEASANT, S.C. - The Towson University women's golf team concluded play at the South Carolina State University (SCSU) Bulldog Invitational today, claiming a fourth-place finish.
A day after nearly setting the school record for a team single round score, the Tigers shot a 337. However, Towson remained among the top half of the teams in the field by holding on to fourth-place.
"Rounds like the girls played on Monday speak to the potential of this team," said Tiger head coach Kate Stepanek. "To have four freshmen that have not experienced this before go out and shoot the numbers they did was really impressive. We weren't quite as sharp today, but overall I was really pleased with our performance in this tournament."
Freshmen Tensley Clowser and Emma Hjarne ended the tournament tied for 14th overall in the 42-person field, concluding three rounds with identical scores of 233. Freshman Larissa Spiess carded an 83 today to finish in a tie for 27th with a three-day total of 242 and classmate Viveka Singh concluded play with a 250.
Wofford College posted an 884 team score to win the tournament by 11 strokes over Bethune-Cookman (895). South Carolina State (931) finished third in its home tournament, while Towson (952) edged fifth-place finisher The Citadel (953) by just one stroke.
Wofford's Anne Marie Covar finished tied with Bethune-Cookman's Patrizia Trevisan for the individual crown as the pair each posted a 214, five shots ahead of the field. Patrizia fired a three-under 69, the best round of the tournament for any golfer, to tie Covar, the co-leader after day two.
Towson will next be in action October 13-14 at the DSU Hornet Invitational.
